Falling Essentials By Elena Henwood
Jan 21, 2020 - Feb 25, 2020
 
Falling with Grace: An Introduction to the Feldenkrais MethodTM for Preventing a Fall and Falling with Grace.
 
 
Falling and falling prevention strategies are exceedingly important, acquired with lots of practice and an understanding of how the human skeleton maintains stability under the force of gravity. Using the Feldenkrais MethodTM, participants will learn to balance and coordinate the movements of their skeleton, both for saving themselves from falling and for bringing themselves down to the ground in an organized way*. Getting back up, and shaking off residual stress after taking a fall will also be addressed. During the first 6 hours of this course
 
(Part I), students will learn better balance, better coordination and more control in walking to increase the likelihood of preventing a fall, as well, how to quickly catch themselves from falling under certain circumstances. Students will learn a little bit about the workings of the nervous system as it relates to proprioceptive intelligence and recovering from a fall. The last 3 hours of the course (Part II)**, students will carry out supervised falling practice privately***. Relevant, real-life falling hazards will be identified and incorporated into these lessons.
 
 
Please note:
 
* Participants must be able to bring themselves to sit comfortably on the floor in a side-sitting or cross-legged position. Please contact Elena prior to registering to discuss eligibility. feelbetter@elenahenwood.com
** Participants are encouraged to register for both Part I and Part II of the course. Participants must complete Part I in order to register for Part II.
*** Part II lessons are private and you can arrange for them to take place in your own home or at Elena's home studio.
