Discover how to improve your quality of life & wellbeing

The demands of modern life leave many of us stressed day in and day out. Trying to find a balance between the daily pressures of family, friends and self can be a trial and even the technologies that supposedly make life better challenge our wish to live with ease and grace.

But there is a solution! Discover Awareness Through Movement lessons and how they can relieve tension and improve your quality of life and wellbeing.


On the weekend of 3 and 4 November, the Australian Feldenkrais Guild NSW Division is hosting two public workshops with Lavinia Plonka, Director of the Asheville Movement Centre in North Carolina USA. All are welcome to come along and attend one or both workshops:


Workshop 1 - Unshouldering the Burden

Are your shoulders up by your ears? Curving forward so that sitting up straight is becoming a chore? Groaning with stiffness and pain? How many shoulds are you piling on your shoulders? This day we learn how to lighten the load, relieve tension and put your shoulders in their place.


Workshop 2 - The Breath Connection

Of course, you are breathing, otherwise, you wouldn't be reading this. But stress, whether it's traumatic, or simply chronic, can impact your breath and consequently, your health. Enjoy this delicious day of connecting your breath to your movement, your mood, and your health.
