Delicate Fingers: An Introduction to Calming
Improving your sleep may be the single most important thing you can do to benefit your overall health and well-being. Sleep is restorative, aiding in cellular repair and reducing inflammation. It supports our nervous system, immune system, our skeletal and muscular systems, and our hormonal system. Sleep helps to regulate our mood, our capacity for concentration, our memory, our cardiovascular health, and our energy levels.
People often report feeling sleepy or falling asleep while doing Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement lessons. This is because the Feldenkrais lessons help to bring about certain changes in our autonomic nervous system. And, it's possible to access those same positive changes to help ourselves have a deeply restorative sleep at night. We are delighted to welcome special guest teacher Feldenkrais Trainer Paris Kern, with a series of classes devoted to helping you reduce stress in the daytime and improve your sleep at night.
In this series, Paris will combine Feldenkrais lessons with a Feldenkrais-inspired approach known as the 'Sounder Sleep System®.' You will enjoy the benefits of full-length lessons and learn a collection of short movements that you can use during the day to support and develop your ability to return to a parasympathetic or relaxed neurological state whenever you wish. The lessons in this series will be gentle and accessible to everyone, helping you repair your relationship with sleep and access the many restorative benefits associated with a 'good night's sleep.'
"Paris clearly taught practical methods for helping me be a sounder sleeper. The workshop materials were easy to use and well-organized. I learned movements I can do any time and anywhere to calm down my nervous system. Highly recommended!"
