Book your place

Interactive guided well-being workshop based on the Feldenkrais Method, to explore how enlivening the body can enrich the imagination. 

This interactive well-being workshop from the comfort of your own home will be an opportunity to be guided through an awareness through movement activity, based on the Feldenkrais Method and to take that experience into image making and creative writing. Awareness through movement is often a relaxing activity that supports noticing sensations and ways of moving that in everyday life we habitually ignore. We will explore ways in which enlivening the body in this way can potentially enrich the imagination and embodied creative practice. Open to all fitness levels, no artistic ability required. Please wear loose comfortable clothing, have a mat or blanket to lie on and pens, crayons, and paper to hand.
