Introduction to Feldenkrais Method®: Focus on Feet and Hands

April 18, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

$49

Tuesdays, April 11 and 18, 6:30-8:00 pm at the Joe C. Thompson Conference Center on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin

Our feet and hands are related to our survival as well as to our emotions and cognition. As babies develop and explore, they take in significant amounts of brain-stimulating information through their hands and feet. Penfield’s homunculus (click here to view two models) demonstrates in a visible way the amount of territory on the adult motor cortex that is given to various parts of the body. Indeed, the hands are clearly of great importance, and it is our feet that keep us upright and moving in the world.

Wear comfortable, layered clothing. Bring a mat, quilt, or blanket to be comfortable lying on the floor. Also bring bath towels and/or small pillows for head support.
