A workshop exploring ways to maintain physical and mental balance, flexibility and poise as you grow older
As we age we become more aware of how much we depend on our bodies, and how important it is to take care of them! This is also often a time when it can feel as if our body is letting us down more than it used to. It can get hurt more easily, and takes longer to heal, and we can start to lose the ease of movement, balance and easy upright posture that we had when we were younger.
Over the years many of us accumulate a great deal of muscular tension in our bodies simply from the stress and strain of everyday life, and this can gradually result in distortion, poor alignment and pain. In addition the range of movement and of physical and emotional expression that we use may become more limited and constrained. When we grow older the effects of this strain and limitation can start to become more noticeable.
Fortunately human beings are very resilient and it is never too late to make positive changes! In this workshop we will explore your movement patterns and the way you support yourself against gravity to see what you may be doing that is putting your structure under unnecessary pressure. We will also look at how we can free our body and mind from self-imposed limitations which may exacerbate the ageing process.
