You will benefit from this workshop if you:
Live with chronic pain.
Find it more difficult to do the things you love
(Like hobbies, gardening, walking, or playing with your grandchildren
Feel frenzied & stressed out.
Hold stress in your shoulders, neck, or lower back
Are looking for better, more holistic solutions.
We can change how our bodies respond: Sometimes we cannot change the stressors in our lives. We cannot change the structural injuries like herniated discs, or the fact that we have certain painful chronic disorders like fibromyalgia or MS.
But, what we CAN change is how our bodies respond to those stressors, injuries, and disorders.
We can learn how to create more comfort, flexibility, & ease in our lives, with powerful benefits for our bodies, minds, & spirits.
In the workshop, you will listen to what your own body is telling you about your comfort--and will not go beyond that.
Plus, we have a great deal of experience helping people in significant pain and/or stress get relief. We will guide you.
Of course, you cannot get out of pain in one workshop. That takes a commitment of a series of classes, workshops, and/or private sessions. Benefits: You will learn how this approach can help you to:
Get relief from back, neck, or shoulder pain
Unclench the stress you hold in your shoulders
Have a more flexible, healthier spine
Have a daily life of less stress but more comfort & ease.
Use your own body to feel more present, balanced, & energetic
I am thrilled to offer t his workshop: Because the Feldenkrais Method (FM) has made such a huge impact in my own life. After an incomplete spinal cord injury at 29, I was told I'd never walk again. I did, through quality medical care and the FM. Mostly the later, because it helped me create new neural pathways. And the approach helped me not only deal with the chronic pain but eventually getting back to doing the things I loved.
About five years ago, I experienced a paralyzing neurological disorder, Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy. This time, I was able to meet the paralysis with almost 20 years of experience with the Feldenkrais Method-both in helping others and in my own self-care. I know. REALLY. Another paralyzing condition!?! The FM helped me to walk again, and to meet the pain with a powerful ally. I learned how to use my own body to create more flexibility, comfort, & ease. In particular it gave me control over my life again.
I am happy to share what I have learned with you; and, I know it will help you.
If you are in pain, if you hold stress in your neck, shoulders, or lower back, and stay clenched up--if you are looking for better, more holistic solutions--the workshop will be beneficial to you.
