Exploring the use of our hands – Feldenkrais Method with Sabine Schmid Blackaby

09/12/2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Our hands are a very active part of ourselves. May it be in our daily lives, at work or play, our hands hardly cease to move. But how do we touch, hold, handle, clap, caress, express and do all the things our hands are involved with every day? Are our hands and wrists moving easily or are we gripping things harder than we need to?
In this workshop we will explore the movements of our fingers, hands and wrists more closely and look for more comfortable and softer ways to use them. This will be useful if you suffer from overuse or recover from a past injury to your hands and wrist. It will also influence various yoga asanas positively
The Feldenkrais Method offers a unique and practical way to realise our potential more fully. It is an educational method focusing on learning and movement, which can bring about improved movement and enhanced functioning. It is named after its originator, Moshe Feldenkrais (1904-1984), an engineer and physicist as well as a Judo teacher.

What are the benefits? Relief from tension and muscular pain, easier and fuller breathing, greater relaxation and well-being, improved performance in sport, dance, music and drama, greater ease in everyday activities, increased vitality

Sabine Blackaby:

After many years of working with children and exploring various movement disciplines, I trained as a Feldenkrais teacher in Italy, becoming a practitioner in 1997. Since then I have been developing my private practice alongside teaching regular classes and workshops.

Many people I work with experience restrictions in movement and pain and are looking for ways to learn to move more easily and comfortably again. Others are wanting to improve an existing skill in sports, dance, drama, music or martial arts. I also help people who are recovering from an injury and work with people with neurological disturbances such as Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy and Motor Neuron Disease.

I understand my teaching as creating an environment for learning where people learn from their own exploration and experience guided by their sensations of comfort and ease. I am interested in helping people to sense themselves and the way they move more clearly so that possible movement habits and holding patterns can become perceptible and we can find ways of reducing effort, learning to move more easily, comfortably and efficiently.
