It is well known now that emotion is a physical event, not just something that happens in a disembodied mind: We freeze with fear, shake with anger, cry with sadness, laugh with delight, can feel heavy with dread, light with joy and jittery with excitement.
In this workshop we will play a few games and use ‘Awareness through Movement’ lessons from the Feldenkrais Method to explore these ideas. Expect deep and delicate work: the little difference that can make all the difference.
Please provide your own yoga/exercise mat for extra comfort with floor work.
