Wake Up! A Feldenkrais® -Inspired Sequence
A Feldenkrais Method® workshop with Feldenkrais Practitioners
Anna Yen and Julie Peck
Have you ever wanted to explore a sequence of Feldenkrais Method® Awareness Through Movement (ATM) lessons to help you ‘wake up’?
Feldenkrais Method® and theatre practitioner, Anna Yen, assisted by Julie Peck, Feldenkrais Trainer, will lead you through a sequence of dynamic Awareness Through Movement lessons which incorporate:
- multiple ways to move from standing to sitting to lying on the floor, and back up to standing.
- moving across the floor
- flexion (folding movements), extension (arching movements), side bending and rotation (twisting and spiraling movements)
- practising focus which is both inside and outside i.e. both awareness of how you are moving, and of the environment in which you are moving.
The workshop incorporates games, which playfully develop awareness of the space, other people, and rhythm. This exploratory, draft sequence of Awareness Through Movement lessons, was put together by European theatre teacher, Monika Pagneux, to help performers “wake up”, to be ready to play and to follow their impulses on stage (or in life!) Anna has studied extensively with Pagneux, whose aim is to help people be “wonderful, sensitive, moving human beings”.
