Gardening requires a wide range of movements from the entire body. If done with little self awareness and without knowing your body mechanics, this can cause harm and pain in the joints and muscles.

This 6 week Series will use the Feldenkrais-Method® to discover how you can move with more efficiency and less stress in your garden. Awareness through Movement Lessons® will help you learn to weed out improper gardening movement habits. This series will include hands-on practice with garden tools at the end of each lesson. You will get to know very practical techniques in the following areas (important not only for gardeners):

  • Shoveling and Digging using the whole body
  • Kneeling and Reaching (for weeding)
  • Bending over & Squatting comfortably
  • Lifting (heavy loads)
  • Pushing and pulling objects
  • Use of the arms, wrists & hands in the garden

This is a wonderful way to experience how the Feldenkrais-Method® can help you to improve your movement and your joy for gardening.

You do not need prior Feldenkrais® experience to enjoy this series. Please bring a mat or blanket with you and wear warm, comfortable clothes. You will also be encouraged to bring some of your garden tools.
