July 17, 2016">"Dem Bones" at A Healing Collective

July 17, 2016

Date and time

Sunday
July 17, 2016
2-5 p.m.

Description

As if by magic, bones give us the capacity to feel weightless. When we line them up just right,  they make us feel tall and light and free to move in any direction we like. Magical.marilyn_sand

When we think about bone health we start talking about weight bearing and working hard, building muscle and getting stronger. What if lightness and ease were at the heart of bone health and maybe even at the core of general well being? What if improving bone health could be fun and easy?

Join Gika Rector for this exploration of Bones For Life® (BFL), a program developed by Ruthy Alon to promote bone health and skeletal alignment. Through gentle, natural movements you’ll feel taller, lighter and more balanced. You might even have a little more spring in your step.

Fee

Awareness Through Movement® Series at A Healing Collective

Date and time

Four Wednesdays
April 8–29
6–7 p.m.

Description

Join Gika Rector for this 4-week series of Awareness Through Movement® lessons exploring the relationship of the feet to the carriage of the head.

Often ignored and neglected until they cry out for attention, the feet have a profound impact on the simplest of movements. With 3 separate arches and 26 bones in each foot, the complexity of how human beings get support from the ground up is amazing. But because we box up our feet in shoes and walk on flat surfaces all day long, we lose the range of motion and proprioceptive information that can make human movement so beautiful. As we remind ourselves of these possibilities, we can once again hold our heads lightly at the top of the spine and move with greater confidence and ease.

Based on the work of Moshe Feldenkrais, Awareness Through Movement® lessons, help you slow down and notice how your body gets things done. Bringing mindfulness to your movements, you will build strength, greater range of motion and better balance. As Feldenkrais said, you will “Make the impossible possible, the possible easy, and the easy graceful.”
