The solutions to physical problems aren’t always in the place you’re looking. Your thigh bone's connected to your hip bone – you know the song, but can you visualize our structure? The accuracy of your bodymap in the brain is crucial to how you move yourself.

Feldenkrais uses a process of organic learning, through moving and sensing, to free you from your habitual patterns.

These movement patterns or habits, embedded in our nervous system, often become outmoded or dysfunctional, creating unnecessary limitations. They can cause pain, tension, amplify performance anxiety, and stage fright – or just not allow you to play at the top of your game.

Find out more about Feldenkrais and its benefits, as well as details on the full series of workshops that the MU is holding.

About the course tutor

Emma Alter is both professional classical musician and Feldenkrais teacher. She brings a wealth of experience with her, understanding the pressures of standing in front of an audience and performing at the highest level, whatever the situation and complexities of playing an instrument, and how the body can get in the way of performing to our optimum.

She has helped musicians with postural issues, restricted movement, chronic tension (including back pain and RSI ), or simply to find more efficient ways to play more easily.
