Body Awareness

Body Awareness is a low impact class useful for all levels incorporating slow, mindful movements that raise bodily awareness to heal persistent tension-based patterns in the body. Corrective exercises are used that are ideal for overcoming bodily pain as well as dramatically increasing flexibility through the healing power of brain-to-muscle awareness and re-education. Body Awareness is based on the principles of Somatics, Feldenkrais as well as breath work and yoga.

Eurythmy Therapy

Eurythmy Therapy is based on the understanding that sound and gesture have a specific relationship to maintaining health in the body. This is done by stimulating the bodies natural healing abilities through repeating specific gestures which have an effect cognitively, emotionally and physically. Research in neuro-physiology confirms that there are intimate links between movement and the development and stimulation of the brain. The gestures are recommended by a Eurythmy therapist who will identify with you what you will need.

Eurythmy gestures are related to singing and to speech. Eurythmy as an expressive art form aims to transform the inner movements, which are the source of our speaking and singing, into visible outer movements. Each vowel, consonant, tone and interval has its archetypal gesture, which allows manifold variations. These form the artistic material for the Eurythmist.
