The Winter In-Town Feldenkrais Retreat offers three days of gentle movement, awareness practice, self-care and restoration; a clean, quiet, comfortable space; an experienced teacher … and you don’t even have to travel to enjoy it!
Each day of the Winter Feldenkrais In-Town Retreat will include three Awareness Through Movement lessons. The lessons will vary from quiet breath work to larger, more challenging (and fun!) movements. On Thursday, we have a shorter session, with a short break between our lessons. On Friday and Saturday, there will be time for a longer break, so we may eat an unhurried lunch in the center’s comfortable kitchen. The schedule is designed to help you travel during off-peak hours, so you can sleep in, arrive without too much hassle, and return home well-rested.
Come for some solitary time, or share introspective time with new and familiar friends. The manna we’ll all share is Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement, and the process of self-discovery it provides.
Our theme for this retreat will be Rising from Down to Up. Through playful and in-depth explorations, you will discover ease and fluidity as you travel from reclining to standing. The pace will be slow and incremental over the three days, as you get comfortable in one part of the journey before moving onto the next. Through this process you will identify unconscious efforts that impede your actions despite your best intentions, and make clearer, more elegant movements.
“Learning . . . is not the training of willpower but the acquisition of the skill to inhibit parasitic action and the ability to direct clear motivations as a result of self-knowledge.” Moshe Feldenkrais, The Potent Self.
