Winter term Feldenkrais Classes with Jenny D'Cruz
Awareness Through Movement® Classes Term 3 with Jenny D’Cruz
Exploring your Dynamic Potential in Balance
Balance is a dynamic process. We may feel that we are balanced one moment and then it is gone. It is a constantly changing state of potential energy. This term we will explore how we may be holding ourselves tense in an effort to be stable and find ways to be more flexible or mobile. As we learn to organise our movement more efficiently our dynamic balance improves.

The Feldenkrais Method: It is often assumed that to improve movement we need to get fitter or stronger, run more and work out at the Gym with weights. There are of course great benefits to doing this BUT the question is, how hard do we have to push to improve? The answer lies in awareness through movement classes as we find that there is more to improving movement than increasing effort or intensity. During the class we explore factors such as movement direction, orientation, timing, and speed. There is also the relationship between what we feel, think, internal and external sensing and movement to explore. Each term we will continue to enjoy movement for movement’s sake and follow that oft heard phrase, “it’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey”. Finding many options in movement, or even just “making the impossible, possible” may be very satisfying for us. Why should we settle with one way of doing something or only one destination?
