When you think of core strength, what image comes to mind?

  • The Olympic power lifter, grunting and straining with super-human effort?
  • The svelte Pilates poster girl, with abs and glutes in “Lockdown?”
  • A perplexed person with question marks circling their head?

In this Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® workshop, you will experience true core strength as flexible and dynamic, not a static state.

Movement should be a pleasure! You will learn how to feel strong, centered, and supported without forcing or straining. Imagine yourself breathing and smiling as you learn to move with power, flexibility, and skill.
