Feeling Taller: Focus on the flexor and extensor muscles (6 classes + free beginners lesson)

$72.00

Summer is on it’s way and I wanna feel taller and walk with my head held high. Often what stops us from feeling tall is the misuse of the muscles that are there for lengthening and those made for shortening.

Along our lives, we may have taken into the habit of shortening ourselves when we need to walk and/or lengthening when we need to be small. That causes confusion in ourselves, it leads to tripping, hurting oneself more often and general uncomfortable-ness. So, how do we stop doing that and make a change?

That’s where the Feldenkrais Method comes in! We’re going to do two lessons on lengthening, two lessons on shortening, and by the last two lessons, you’ll already start feeling taller and smaller at the same time! The idea is that we need to feel both ways to be able to move the way we want!

This series is a little different than my last ones. Summer is on it’s way and I wanna feel taller and walk with my head held high. Often what stops us from feeling tall is the misuse of the muscles that are there for lengthening and those made for shortening (ie: the flexor and extensor muscles).

Along our lives, we may have taken into the habit of shortening ourselves when we need to walk and/or lengthening when we need to be small. That causes confusion in ourselves, it leads to tripping, hurting oneself more often and general uncomfortable-ness.

So, how do we stop doing that and make a change? That’s where the Feldenkrais Method comes in!

The idea is that we need to feel both ways to be able to move the way we want! Flexor and extensor muscles for the win!!

The free lesson is a famous lesson called The Pelvic Clock. It is all about finding flexion and finding extension in the pelvis by going in small gentle circles around a clock. Having numbers to follow in the imagination can help slow down the movement and clarify what exactly you are doing in space.

Flexor and extensor muscles for the win!!

→ In these Awareness Through Movement classes, I verbally lead you through a sequence of movements all laying down on your back. These precisely structured movement explorations involve thinking, sensing, moving and feeling. By increasing awareness, you will learn to abandon habitual patterns of movement and develop new alternatives, resulting in improved flexibility and coordination, less pain, more comfort.

→ It helps counter anxiety by understanding the effect on the body. It really just makes you feel taller, more grounded and relaxed – and who doesn’t want that! Doing Feldenkrais is not only for chronic symptoms or pain, it’s also used to increase skill, to open yourself up to new ideas, find choice in absence, and secure proper and easy aging!

→ Many Awareness Through Movement lessons are based on developmental movements and ordinary functional activities (reaching, standing, lying to sitting, looking behind yourself, etc.). Some are based on more abstract explorations of joint, muscle, and postural relationships. Lessons are fully accessible to those with varying movement possibilities – because lessons can even work in the imagination. Sounds like magic because it is!! The magic of the brain!

"I loved how Andréa offered us different movement exercises that gave me a lot of insight on how I move through the world; even if we were on zoom, I could feel their presence and kindness. They were very generous in their teaching and support during and after classes. "

Pascale Brunet About my online classes

"After class, I remember finding everything so colourful and beautiful. Like i was seeing everything for the first time!. I recommend Andréa for the sweetness of their presence, touch and their empathetic strength to accompany you professionally in the discomfort of the winding path of self-love.”

Émilie Savoie About my online classes
and private lessons

"Andréa’s curious mind and kindness makes Feldenkrais a welcome break in my week and a perfect time to just reconnect with my self."

Kadi About my private lessons

"Andréa's classes left me feeling peaceful, physically stronger and more awakened in my day to day work."

Anonymous About my online classes

"I love this method! Andréa is an excellent teacher. Each class takes me deeper into the subtle power of awareness, softness and gentle movements. I live with chronic pain and have a brain injury, and the more I practice, the more I feel it helping transform and re-wire my neural pathways!"

Sky About my classes

"After each session, I feel relaxed, I move with ease and fluidity. Some pains have disappeared and the impact can be felt days after!"

Hélène C About my private lessons

"I want to take this opportunity to thank you for the work we are doing together. I have been believing my body is defective for some time now, especially after the stroke. I had a difficult time “listening” to my body because I did not trust what it had to tell me. Slowly, this belief is changing and I am coming home (for lack of better words) to my body. I am very grateful. Thank you so much."
