In this session we will explore The Feldenkrais Method as a gentle and accessible resource for dance discovery and inquiry. We will explore the use of movement exploration, heightened sensation and structured problem-setting as tools for finding freedom, new patterns and greater possibilities in our improvised movement choices. The Feldenkrais Method offers an accessible toolkit for movement learning. It opens out a relational perspective on movement, perception and somatic agency, supporting our ability to learn and discover new skills with ease. In imaginative and playful ways, it allows us to relate to our world through complex and multi-dimensional movement patterns. The class is open to all.
