Yoga, Feldenkrais & Movement Therapy


Breath, Movement, Yoga – A Beginner’s Guide to Practice

 

Feeling stressed out, running on empty, low on energy with a long list of “to dos” with no tools or idea how you can carry on? There is a new class for you where you can take a step back, breathe and regroup.  You’ll learn the basics of yoga, meditation, somatic movement so your mind becomes clearer, your body lighter and your stress level more manageable.

This is a class designed for beginners – but literally anyone will benefit – and during the 8 week course you’ll master enough of the basics and principles to develop a home practice, which then will become one of the cornerstones of your well being.

By the time “graduation” Thursday rolls along you’ll have a better handle on life’s ups and downs and obstacles, both physical and mental, with more energy, peace and ease.

Through movement, guided exploration, breath work and meditation you will master working with your body and mind as an integrated whole and come away with the knowledge necessary to manage both your physical as well as mental reality from a more empowered perspective.

We’ll hold a complimentary “graduation” session from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM with tea and treats afterwards.   Spring session runs for 8+1 weeks from March 4 through April 29.

Come join us on the way to a healthier, happier, more balanced life!

Connecting Breath, Movement, Awareness – Finding Your Yoga

Feeling stressed out, running on empty, low on energy with a long list of “to dos” with no idea how you can carry on? There is a new class for you where you can take a step back, breath and regroup. You’ll learn ways to handle life and obstacles, both physical and mental, with more energy, peace and be at ease.

As you become more aware of your body, movement and breath, cultivating awareness, insight and calm, becoming more flexible in mind and body, will come more naturally.  Restore, rejuvenate, learn to cooperate with your body and  your mind in the “here and now”, accepting and working with your current reality and discovering better ways of finding solutions, insight, ease and lightness in life. Clearing your mind of cluttering thoughts so clarity,wisdom and vision can emerge, taking steps toward true yoga: unifying your body, mind and spirit will become reality.

Soma Twist

Through movement, guided exploration, breath work and meditation you will master working with your body and mind as an integrated whole and come away with the knowledge necessary to manage both your physical as well as mental reality from a more empowered perspective.

A complimentary introductory session is held on November 19 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM.   Holiday “Serenity Session” runs for 3 weeks in December: December 3, 10, 17.”

Moshe Feldenkrais, neuroplasticity and the Feldenkrais Method®

The 11 Principles Behind the Method, Movement, Learning and Optimal Function

Recently  I’ve been reading and rereading Norman Doidge’s new book on this subject, titled “The Brain’s Way of Healing Itself”, studying it, as it discusses what I work with on a daily basis and thus provides me with an opportunity to study as well as reflect on how I work with, think about and understand the Method and its many implications.

After giving us a background on Moshe Feldenkrais and depicting the origins of the Method, the author comes to discuss the “Core Principles” Moshe employed in his revolutionary new method: after all, we can consider him the first “neuroplastician”, way before the term neuroplasticity was even coined.

I read through the chapter and I knew my interest was really piqued: Continue reading

Introduction to the Feldenkrais Method(R) – Free Class

A unique opportunity awaits: Friday, March 13, there will be a free introduction to the Feldenkrais Method (R) with Zsuzsa Belhazy-Kovacs, Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner(R) at Open Space Yoga studio in Nashua, NH.

If you like freedom of movement, ease, comfort and efficiency, this class will help you discover or rediscover it as well as have you move better, get more balanced and coordinated and leave you relaxed, at ease, light and free.

The Feldenkrais Method(R) is a somatic movement modality, named after it’s founder dr Moshe Feldenkais, that uses small movements and differentiations to find optimum function in brain, body and ultimately in your entire being. It is helpful for people recovering from injury, having any sort of movement challenge, neurological issues, athletes, yoga practitioners wishing to go deeper into their craft and simply those of us who just like to feel and move better.

I would like to invite you to come and see for yourself what it can do for you!

Origins of the Feldenkrais Method(R)

So how did Moshe Feldenkrais, physicist and judo master come about developing his original method instead of moving on as a talented physicist with a promising future?

We do know about his debilitating injury to his knee and his stubborn, albeit well founded refusal to have conventional treatment with a risky surgery and instead going his own way, experimenting, learning, even meditating on it, using every bit of knowledge and tool at his disposal, including applying psychology and becoming one of the pioneers of mind/body approaches.
