“The Flow State’

The Feldenkrais Method with Megan Hopley 

Each one of us speaks, moves, thinks and feels in a different way, each according to the image of himself that he has built up over the years. In order to change our mode of action we must change the image of ourselves that we carry within us. What is involved here is a change in the dynamics of our reactions, and not the mere replacing of one action by another.- Moshe Feldenkrais

‘The Flow State’

Have you ever had the feeling that everything was flowing, a sense of spaciousness and perhaps a feeling that time had slowed down?

In these moments there is a sense that everything is simple, attainable and easy.

A common term for this is being in a state of flow.

This state of ease is the territory that we will explore and develop during this workshop.

Our nervous system is designed to recover, restore and regenerate when in the parasympathetic or healing phase of the nervous system. Restorative practices such as The Feldenkrais Method® are really beneficial for our long term health, wellness and vitality.

Bringing the state of Flow into more and more areas of your life is a wonderful way to continue to balance and heal your nervous system. Enhance sleep is one of the many benefits of a healthy, balanced nervous system.

During this workshop we will explore natural, powerful ways to bring the Flow state into more and more areas of our lives. You will be guided in gentle ways to explore your unique embodiment of the Flow state through movement. As we free up the body, mind and breath discover how this influences power, ease and grace throughout your whole self-including your muscles and joints.

The benefits can include enhanced sleep, freedom from pain and tension and increased vitality. Many people report greater ease and comfort in their posture and everyday movements such as walking, sitting and their posture.

Workshop focus
