“Movement is life. Life is a process. Improve the quality of the process and you improve the quality of life itself.” – Moshe Feldenkrais
Feldenkrais classes are suitable for everyone; you are in control of how little or how much movement you do, and are encouraged to stay comfortable and pain-free at all times. Alison McGillivray will guide you through a theme and variations in movement, starting small and always staying within your own limits and possibilities.
The Feldenkrais Method is useful for improving your everyday movement, recovering from injury, increasing your pain-free range of movement, and improving your skills in professional or amateur sport, music and dance.
Moshe Feldenkrais was a scientist and engineer who through working with the challenges of his own knee injuries, developed this method of working with the whole body and self to achieve lasting, radical change. The method draws on his extensive knowledge of anatomy, physiology, psychology and engineering, as well as his mastery of martial arts. The method has some of its beginnings in Scotland: Feldenkrais was an engineer at the Radar base at Fairlie, Ayrshire, during the second world war. His evening classes were attended by the Fairlie villagers as well as his scientific colleagues.
Classes are on Mondays at 12noon-1pm. Drop-ins welcome.
