Beyond the Core: How to Enact Your Innate Strength (floor)

This class will be held online. Zoom links will be sent after you register (use the form at bottom of this page).

When you hear phrases like ‘engage your core’ or ‘strengthen your core’ are you left wondering, “What exactly is my core and how do I know if I’m engaging it?”

The concept of ‘the core’ can be useful but there’s also a lot of myths and misunderstandings. Utilizing the support of the large muscles at the center of your body is important. But over-tensing your abdomen hinders efficient, coordinated movement. To enjoy easy, pain-free movement, all parts of you need to work together.

This series will:

  • Demystify ‘the core’ and give you better awareness of your own.
  • Help you use your core in an integrated, dynamic (rather than fixed) way. 
  • Explore the integral connection between strength and breath

This class is primarily done on mats on the floor. Everyone welcome. 

Class Meets for 4 Tuesdays: February 6, 13, 20 & 27

>> Note: At least 3 students must be registered by 9am Monday Feb 5th  for class to run.

What People Are Saying…

“These were the core exercises I never knew I was missing. Core work is something I’d rather not do, ever. However, not only did I enjoy these lessons and want to keep doing them, they intrigued me, engaged my mind and helped connect my body-mind.” ~ Emily Manship

“This class has helped my low back feel more relaxed, and I don’t need to be conscious of tightening my core to keep this relaxed pattern. While PT and chiropractic have been useful in my healing, it seems your Feldenkrais class is getting to a deeper level. In the long run, I feel these classes will be the most effective path to lasting change”. ~ Gary Silverstein

“The core class has been so helpful. With age, my core has become more elusive and the forward curve in my upper back has affected my breathing as a musician. At the end of each session, my whole back body rests much more comfortably on the floor and breathing is natural and easy. Now, after a lifetime of being coreless, I have an increased sense of the muscles involved, feel more roundness in the ribs, have a much-improved sense of my upper spine and my breathing is easier. Thank you Brandee!” ~ Sally Cornell
