Walking and December dates

For most of us, walking is a daily way of geting from A to B, yet how often do we think about how we do it? What’s your idea of how you walk? How are your different moods reflected in the way you walk? Do you lead your walking with your feet? Or is it more that your back pushes you forward; or perhaps there’s another part of your leading the way forwards.

A few more questions to ask yourself: Does one foot seem to make a clearer connection with the ground? Do you sepnd more time on one foot than the other? What kind of movements do you make with your head as you pootle along?

Mostly we don’t think about how we move, unless we’re trying to hone a skill, or if a part of ourselves doesn’t work in the way it used to.

Many of us don’t think much about how we move, unless we’re trying to hone a skill, or if a part of ourselves doesn’t work in the way it used to…

I’ve been concentrating on “Walking” as a theme for the last weeks of my group classes this year- my last class is on Tuesday the 12th December, we’ll be starting up again from the second week of January.

In the meantime, please do join me in my December workshop: Refresh my Walking on the 10th December, whether you’re looking to oil your joints, free up those muscles, or to just to spend a little time exploring the possibilities that Feldenkrais can offer in thinking about how you move on your pins.

For a sneak preview try out a section of one of my lessons on feet:

(Every workshop, even if it has a similar title will be made up of a variety of different lessons concentrating on that theme- Moshe Feldenkrais wrote thousands of classes to cover all the possible movements of the human body, and I like to include different ones in each workshop- not only for you, so that you can attend a workshop on a particular theme more than once, but for me too!).
