Further Introductions to the Feldenkrais Method with Sabine Schmid Blackaby

8 October, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Improving the mobility of our back to reduce discomfort and pain.

Feldenkrais teaches us that the way our back feels is related to the way we are moving and using it in various situations. But rather then having fixed ideas and prescribing what we should and shouldn’t do, Feldenkrais lessons endeavour to restore our back’s natural ability to move well. Instead of strengthening particular areas or focusing on core stability we will explore movements in various positions and dimensions to learn how to move our back in a safe and comfortable way.
The mobility of our back and our centre will provide us with more power and also facilitates easier movements in our arms, legs and neck.

images (2)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.
