Weekend Workshops

Reaching Out

30 - 31 May 2020
Support and Flexibility
(focusing on the ribs)

Reaching Out

How do we find extra length?

Where in the joints do we have the possibility to make more room, to reach beyond an arm’s length?

And how do we stop falling over when we move far from our centre?

We will be exploring the parameters of reaching, understanding ways of finding balance, and ways of extending outwards.

Support and Flexibility

focusing on the ribs

The ribs follow rather than lead, but have an important part to play in supporting uprightness as well as responding with flexibility. It’s a fine line.

In addition, ribs have a part to play in breathing, finding space for expansion and contraction while bending in different directions.

Booking and Payment

Before you book, please send me an email to check there is still a place, and to let me know, if you have not worked with me before, what (if any) experience you have with Feldenkrais.

Please also read these notes on how to pay.

The workshop will be in the Dojo, at:
Stillpoint, The Stoneyard, Old Orchard, Bath BA1 5AX

It’s not an obvious address – one year a few people got lost – so there’s a map and some notes below.

Parking
There is no parking at the Dojo (although you can drop people and kit off there).

I recommend using Park and Ride.

Another option is to park in St Saviours Road, Larkhall BA1 6RT (no restrictions) on the Eastern edge of Bath. Walk along the A4 London Road (20 mins) or if you have time, along the canal (adds about 10 mins – come off the path at Sydney Gardens)  to Walcot Street.

Sundays
Sometimes the gates at the bottom of Old Orchard are shut on Sundays. If so, walk back up Old Orchard, turn left and then left again into Beehive Yard. There is a pedestrian gate, with a keypad lock (ask me for the code on Saturday). Go through the gate and continue on down to the Dojo.

Walking to Stillpoint

Stillpoint is about 10 minute’s walk from Bath Abbey in the centre of the city.

Walk up Walcot Street (past Waitrose), and Old Orchard is a small lane down to the right.

At the bottom, turn left, following the sign to the Dojo, which is up the steps.

Add another 10 minutes if you’re coming from the train station or the bus station.
