Get to know Julie through this Free lesson
At the beginning of this gentle lesson, Julie invites us to observe the outline of our body, and then to observe the places that touch the floor. At the end of the lesson Julie brings us back to these images to allow us to compare what has changed, has become refined. In between, Julie invites us to move in increasingly effortless ways; and she also gives us suggestions on how we can think about what we are doing.
Julie called it A Beginner's Lesson. Click to listen or download.
Our Self Image
Dr. Feldenkrais wrote, "Each person has an impression of his own manner of speaking, walking, and carriage which seems personal and immutable-- the only possible way..."
More importantly, "he identifies himself with this image."
And so the self image is more than a passive "impression", it is somehow intertwined with each of our sense of ourselves.
Dr. Feldenkrais proposes a process to learn more about what is happening: "... so that one may actually feel the conditions and possibilities I am describing."
He advises the reader,
"Lie down on your back; mentally and methodically scan your entire body.
You will discover that you can concentrate on certain parts more easily than others, ... you usually will not have consciousness of these other parts during an action."
The critical observation is that "In fact, certain parts almost never figure in the self-image during action." When parts are not included in the self-image, then disfunction is the outcome. Click to read more about the Self Image
I am delighted to be assisting Julie Peck in teaching a two-day workshop in Calgary.
Julie lives in Perth, Australia. She is making a cross-Canada tour promoting the Kelowna Feldenkrais Training which starts in June of this year.
Julie creates deeply enriching learning experiences. Each day of the workshop is a different topic - accommodating single-day registrations. However, we encourage you to come for both to really integrate the learning.
The "Early Bird" fee is only $170 so don't delay.** [Click for more information.
The workshop will be at the Westgate Community Hall in a pleasant residential area ([4943-8 Ave SW Calgary, click for GoogleMap).
I anticipate that we will have the building to ourselves. There is a kitchen with refrigerator space, and lots of open space, outside. Restaurants are within 5 minutes (driving).
