Explorations in Side Sitting
This program taught by Feldenkrais Trainer, Carol Kress features a series of adventurous Feldenkrais lessons created by Dr. Feldenkrais, using aspects of yoga asanas as a starting point. Designed to produce a wealth of sensory information, this program will help you to develop a greater appreciation of yourself and improve the quality and ease of your yoga practice.
For those who enjoy a challenge, self-inquiry, and dynamic movement, this program is an opportunity to put goals aside and focus on your experience in the moment. This can be extremely helpful because aiming for perfection in an asana can actually get in your way and be detrimental to your learning, self-knowledge, and the harmony of mind and body.
Opening us to the current moment, Feldenkrais lessons offer new neuromuscular options which can improve our organization and refine the contours of our actions. With an expanded kinesthetic vocabulary and a richer connection to our inner experience, it becomes easier for us to manifest both power and ease.
Discover new pathways for your yoga practice -and beyond- as you explore the benefits of reducing effort, finding skeletal support, continuous breathing, and eliminating resistance.
No previous yoga experience necessary!
“A deepening of self-knowledge is at the core of both yoga & the Feldenkrais Method®. Feldenkrais lessons help us to cultivate a clearer and more nuanced kinesthetic sense of ourselves. They inspire an attitude more conducive to learning, & can revolutionize the way you practice yoga.”
