Feldenkrais Fear Of Falling


1:30pm - 4:30pm


It is no coincidence that Dr. Feldenkrais, a Judo Black Belt, taught many students how to fall. In Judo this is known as Ukemi. Dr. Feldenkrais identified the fear of falling as one of the defining moments in early human development. This fear not only affects our posture at a basic level, but also fear of falling can be generalized to “fear of falling in love.” Once we are aware of the fact somatically, we can begin to change common reflexive postures including tendencies toward leaning our head forward, rounding our upper back and arching our lower back.  In this workshop with Susan, you will learn how to effectively change your posture and gain greater confidence.  It feels so good, it can inspire you to live with more optimism and possibility.  

Wear comfortable, clothing you can move easily in. Layers are recommended as you may warm up over the course of the workshop.

Please bring your own mat or blanket to layer on top of the classroom’s yoga blankets.
