Rediscover your inborn capacity for efficient movement at any age. Learn to inhabit your body in a more supportive and less taxing way. There are hundreds of class possibilities, varying in difficulty and complexity for all levels of movement ability. These Feldenkrais movement explorations are designed to involve thinking, sensing, moving, feeling, and imagining.

It is important in class to find HOW you engage with each movement process, and to stay within your range of comfort. Please contact the teacher before dropping in if you have never taken a class.

Qigong and Feldenkrais

Organizing now. Dates TBA

Guided by Brenda Sorkin, GCFP

Brenda@MovementDialogues.com or 704.650.7252

In 2002 I was certified by Chan Zhang to teach what I consider a more feminine qigong form called Dance of the Phoenix. I was interested in studying with a woman because all of my previous qigong forms had been developed by men.

This form has 5 sets of movements aimed at harmonizing energy, massaging your organs, centering your chakras and auras and breaking up negativity. The figure eight, a symbol of infinity, is prominently used in the movements.

You will receive written notes for each set at the end of class to help you with your practice so that you will have the full set by the end of the series. We will enhance the series by drawing from Feldenkrais and Bones for Life for our warm up, increasing the potential of the qigong sets.

Classes are small and can last from 1 to 1 ½ hours. A class can be started with 8 of your friends and consensus on day and time.

"Because touch, more than any other sense, has such ready access to young babies brains, it offers perhaps the best possible opportunity, and one of the easiest, for molding their emotional and mental well-being.” -Lise Eliot, Ph.D. from What's Going On In There
