Fall Awareness Through Movement Workshop
Coming Home to Yourself
With Elizabeth Beringer, director of the Feldenkrais Institute of San Diego
Saturday, October 24, 2015
Time: 11:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Cost: $85 preregistered; $95 at the door.
There will be an hour for lunch.
Immerse yourself in a day of breath and movement the Feldenkrais way. The day will start slowly and quietly working on the floor with a focus on developing full and connected breathing. As the day progresses we will use this as a foundation for increasingly dynamic movement utilizing unusual positions and situations. Distraction is ever present in today's world, and one of the challenges in the 21st century is staying centered and connected as we navigate our complex lives. During the day we will work with increasingly challenging situations to help develop and strengthen the ability to maintain healthy postures and well-organized movement as we deal with life's challenges. All levels of experience are welcome.

Getting To Know Your Hip Joints
With Liz Sisco
Sunday, November 15
Hours: 3:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Cost: $50.00. Pre-registration is required. A minimum of 6 participants is needed for the workshop.
What image do you conjure up when told that someone is "hip"? Is it a saunter or swagger, a sensual roll of the pelvis, an athletic stride or a graceful step? How hip are you?
Hips are amazing joints. From an anatomical perspective, the hip joint is able to move in almost any direction while supporting the entire weight of the body. To accomplish this, the bones, cartilage, ligaments, and muscles of the hip must all work in tandem and in a coordinated way with the rest of the self. From a psychological perspective, the way we use our hips defines the attitude we have towards ourselves and what we project to the world.
For a joint that holds so much importance to our self-image and self-use, the hip joints are not so easy to access. In this workshop, we will explore a series of lessons to help clarify your relationship to your hip joints and make you more flexible, more hip!
