About the event

Learn how to re-set a stressed body using the Feldenkrais method in these free, weekly Feldenkrais Method sessions.

A Weekly Feldenkrais Method session to work on freeing up your playing or singing. Feldenkrais is a sensory-motor learning system, which looks at our mind and body holistically. In focussing on our awareness (through movement) we tap into our brain’s way of organic learning.

We’ll be looking at different functional movements each week, making our way around the body over the course of the sessions. These sessions are for all, whether you’ve been to a session before or not.

Before the session starts:

  • Have a mat for the workshop
  • Bring your instruments to the session
  • Play/sing a little before and after the session

How to attend

Places are limited so it's recommended that you reserve yours in advance. The Zoom link will be sent the day before the event. If you have any questions about the workshop please contact teachers@theMU.org

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, 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.
