Focus on Breath

Thursday, May 21st, 2015 6:30-9:30
Feldenkrais Institute, 134 West 26th Street, 2nd Floor
To register call Kathy at 212-727-1014

Whether you are consciously aware of your breathing or not, the way
you breathe can “color” the quality of your life: physically, mentally and emotionally. By improving the way in which air enters and exits your body, the Feldenkrais Method is able to enhance many aspects of your health and vitality, and make it easier for you to maintain a relaxed and positive sense of wellbeing. This fundamentally soothing workshop will feature Feldenkrais exercises designed to improve the coordination of the muscles involved with respiration – including those in the ribs, belly, shoulders, neck and pelvis – allowing you to breathe better in any situation. Join Feldenkrais teacher Kathy Yates to explore effective strategies for using breath to help you:

• Think more clearly and creatively
• Experience increased energy and stamina
• Reduce stress and anxiety
• Speak and sing more freely

Regular Tuition: $55 through May 20; $65 the day of the event
Member Tuition: $30

"Thank you for another wonderful workshop on Sunday!  What an absolute treat that was for me!  I had to sing at a rehearsal last night and really felt free. I didn't do anything different but it just happened."

Transformation Through Breathing

Want to get the most out of your workout, yoga practice or meditation? Improve stamina? Reduce stress? How we breathe directly impacts our overall health and has the potential to shift our lives by connecting us to the very core of our own unique being. In this workshop we will enhance breathing by freeing the muscles of respiration and improving breath coordination. Come and experience enjoyable and potent movement and breathing explorations developed through years of practice by Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais and Carl Stough.

Living Your Unavowed Dreams

What gets in the way of following your passion or even knowing what it is? How can clarifying our movement help us to get clearer in our thinking, enliven our imagination and courage to follow through? Using movement as a metaphor we will explore ways to begin to reduce blocks to more effective and satisfying action in our lives. Please bring writing materials.
