What are FieldTrips?
FieldTrips are meetups to interact, learn and collaborate in an effort to level-up your creative life.
We’re limiting these events to only 25 people, they’re like an intimate dinner party. Your absence will be felt so please make sure that you can definitely attend if you sign up. Also, we’re in the prototyping phase, so come with an open mind and be prepared for anything.
Thanks for participating! We’re lucky to have you.
Creative Coordination: An Introduction to the Feldenkrais Method of Movement Learning
June 8, 8:00am - 9:30am CDT. Hosted at Native Hostel
About this FieldTrip
Movement habits… We can’t learn with them, yet we can’t function without them. Your most basic movement habits are subconscious and they get in your way when you’re trying to do something new. So how do you resolve the contradiction between the usefulness of having automated movement patterns and the need to improve your old skills and learn new ones? Experience the Feldenkrais® approach to wiring and rewiring your brain for learning, refining, adapting, and innovating. Feldenkrais Practitioner, Michelle Drerup, will introduce us to the Feldenkrais Method and guide us through a few movement lessons.
We’ll be meeting upstairs in The Romper Room at Native. Wear comfortable clothes that you can move in. Please bring your curiosity, questions, and a yoga or workout mat to make lying on a hardwood floor a little less hard. If you have more than one yoga mat and are willing to share with other FieldTrippers, we’d be grateful!
Even if lying on the floor is not for you, come! Michelle will also show us how to do these movements while sitting or standing. Or, if you’d prefer to simply observe, you can still experience the benefits.
The Romper Room at Native is not ADA accessible. If you are interested in attending and have special needs, please email us at email@example.com.
As a Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner since 2009, Michelle Drerup has been helping people do what they want to do with greater ease and coordination and with less pain and injury. She has helped her students do things as varied as the transition from sitting to standing more easily, stick the landing of a backflip without causing back pain, and function better with brain injuries and neurological disorders.
