In this course, a series of floor exercises will be presented
that involve very slow, focused and conscious movements. These are designed so
that participants learn to move from the inside out in order to release muscle
tension and move with greater ease and flexibility. They are particularly good
for people with back pain, or any other chronic pain.

Based primarily on the work of Moshe Feldenkrais and two of
his direct students, these exercises are entirely safe because all movements
are slow, small and gentle. Floor exercises are complemented by the movement of
chi or prana (life force energy) through sitting, standing and walking
meditations.

Participants need to be able to get down and up from the floor. Please wear
comfortable clothing and bring a yoga mat and pillow (if required) to each
session.
