Experience Feldenkrais in Naramata

June 7, 2017


Summer will soon be here!

We probably all need some R&R after a longer/colder than normal winter followed by excessive rain this spring. Now the sun is shining, breezes are balmy and temperatures are rising so it’s time to start thinking about summer activities.

Feldenkrais Workshop in Naramata

I’m really excited to be heading to Naramata for a week at the end of July to co-teach a five-day Feldenkrais workshop with Rob Black and Brent Kisilevich.

If you want to take our workshop, Wake Up Your Body and Brainbut don’t know what to do with the rest of the family, there are plenty of options available for them during the same week. There are orchard and winery tours for the adults in your family, and children’s workshops, such as dance, pottery and mixed media art. I've listed some options below for your convenience.

with Rob Black, Sandra Bradshaw and Brent Kisilevich

Your investment: $360 + $40 Materias Fee 

Private Sessions are available for an additional fee. 



Your body talks to you every day, all day. If you listen and support its needs, it will reward you with a vital, pain-free body. If you ignore it, it will send messages of discomfort and pain until you respond. Knowing how to communicate with your body is essential for a vibrant, youthful life. Using the tools provided by the Feldenkrais Method, you will learn how to make lasting changes. You will boost your body’s level of health and well-being, reduce tension and discomfort, improve your posture, enhance the quality and range of your turning and bending. In addition, a book will be available for purchase. Private sessions will also be available for participants to deepen their learning, and address personal movement concerns.
