“The Power of Presence”

The Feldenkrais Method with Megan Hopley 

For many of us this final part of the year can become busy and frenetic. December can be a fun but super-busy time with end of year gatherings and celebrations. Here is an invitation to take time out for yourself to reconnect with your inner presence and to carry your presence into the festive season. Find balance, strength and inner-calm as you learn gentle movements with guided awareness and attention using The Feldenkrais Method®.

Workshop focus

  • Finding simple ways to identify and release excess work in your body
  • Discovering presence internally and externally
  • Balancing and calming your nervous system
  • Exploring the influence on your breath
  • Allowing the earth to support you and feeling held in your own presence
  • Exploring the effects on your emotional, mental and spiritual states

The Preciousness of Paying Attention

Attention – ‘to tend to’

Attention and Presence are among the most threatened resources on our planet. Studies have shown that on average we check our phones, ipads, emails, social media and other electronic devices every 4 minutes.

What are the moments that ask you to pay attention?

The smile of a child.

Someone opening the door for you

Attention and Presence allows us to nourish our relationships

Attention is the thread of life.

Reflect for a moment on what you most care about?

Do you attend to those things that are the biggest or noisiest? Or to those things that matter most to you? Loved ones, ourselves, me time… Your Presence gives a clear message of care and consideration to ourselves and others.

Your facilitator
Megan’s passion is to enhance people’s lives through the Feldenkrais Method. She is excited to share Feldenkrais at Ohana yoga. Megan feels Moshe Feldenkrais’ approach really complements and enhances Yoga and other embodied practices.

Megan completed her Feldenkrais training in the Brisbane 3 training group with educational director Julie Peck. She offers a fulltime Feldenkrais practice in several locations in Melbourne. Megan’s movement practice began forming in the mid 1990’s with studies in Martial arts; Wing Chun Kung Fu, Tai Chi Chuan and Qigong ‘Chi gong’. She loves to share the experience and wisdom gained through her own journey of recovery from pain and injury; later cultivating more freedom and joy through the Feldenkrais Method. Megan works with people of all ages and abilities.

“Aging Well” – Changing your perception of aging

Saturday December 15th from 2 – 5pm

Aging as we think of it is a ‘myth’ – Thomas Hannah (somatic movement pioneer)

As we age, there is an expectation that the body will become less fluid, that we will have drier skin and brittle bones, that we will be mentally less functional, and our movement will become compromised. Is this a normal process of aging? Or, are many of these attributes we ascribe to the aging process not aging, but a disease process that the body is going through?

We all have someone in our life that fits this image of getting older and tighter and decrepit, but this is not how we have to age. The limitations that we think are due to the lack of suppleness are the result of habitually contracted muscles that lead to unbalanced movement. This in turn, leads to new limitations on muscles, which we avoid using to preclude discomfort or pain. The vicious circle leads to deformation of the skeleton, spinal discs and so on.

What if you could age with more fluidity and ease in your body? How would it feel to have free movement and suppleness in your body no matter what age you are?

When we remain connected to our fluid body, we allow the body to remain in a state of renewal. When the body is in a state of renewal rather than a state of decay, you move with more ease. All levels and layers of you benefit from a connection to your fluid body; your muscles, bones, organs, glands and your cells thrive in the fluid body state.

Come explore movement, breath and your state of mind to discover how to reclaim the fluidity of your body.
