Vitality and Wellness
"Movement is life" - Dr Moshé Feldenkrais
There is a widely accepted presumption that after a certain age, our vitality and ability to learn begin to decrease. Common complaints may include forgetfulness, pain or stiffness, difficulty climbing stairs or getting out of bed, tripping or falling more often, lack of energy etc.
However, by tapping into our brain's ability to change and learn at any age through movement, thinking and awareness, the work has shown that it is possible to improve the typical symptoms of ageing such as issues with mobility and flexibility, mental clarity and strength, balance and posture, chronic aches and pains.
Experience greater body awareness, create new neural connections, learn to move with ease and wake up to new possibilities for vitality and wellness.
Examples of positive outcomes include:
Improved Strength and Flexibility
Increased Mobility and Balance
Increased Vitality and Coordination
