This series will focus on finding flexibility and movement in the spine.

Finding Flexibility in the Spine

 

*please note this series is ONLINE and will be taught predominantly in English with occasional French translation if needed.

About the Series :

 

This series will focus on finding flexibility and movement in the spine through small functional movements. Often times, just one small vertebra can stop fluid movement in the spine. By going slow and small, we can make minor corrections to the way we move, which results in easier movement outside class.

 

What will you gain:

 

– Flexibility in the spine.

– Ease in turning the head in oppositional directions (like when driving)

– Strength in the arms

– Support from the spine when moving the arms.

 

The Dates:

EVERY SUNDAY @ 9 AM on Zoom.

FEBRUARY : 13, 20, 27,

MARCH : 6, 13, 20.

The Lessons:

 

We will focus on one specific movement, but divide it into 7 separate classes so each student can find their own comfort and pleasure in their movement. The series is based on coming from laying on the side to laying on the back and returning to the side, in one easy simple flow. Each class will be focused on a specific part of the whole movement. The first lesson will be about bringing the shoulders and pelvis forward and back on the side. The next lesson will be focused on getting the hip to move independently. After that, we will continue with the first lesson, simply trying to make it easier to get to the back and the side. The third lesson will help to incorporate the head and neck into the whole movement. The fourth is another continuation of the first lesson, simply perfecting it and making it pleasurable. The last two lessons on the same theme, but incorporating some twisting movements which help clarify the movement from back to side.

 

About Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement

 

→ In these Awareness Through Movement classes, I verbally lead you through a sequence of movements in a variety of positions. 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."
