“Awakening the Spine” with The Feldenkrais Method®
at 4 Elements Yoga Studio in McMinnville, Oregon

Join Alice for a two-hour Feldenkrais workshop inspired by the theme of Vanda Scaravelli’s classic yoga text, Awakening the Spine.

With gentle movement, you’ll develop your awareness of this extraordinary structure and awaken the parts of the spine that tend to “go to sleep” – often the mid- and upper back. In the process you’ll discover a more evenly distributed mobility throughout your spine, and experience more ease, efficiency, and fluidity in all of your movements.

Whether you struggle with back pain, stiffness, sciatica, etc., or just want to experience more ease and vitality, you’ll come away from our time together with an appreciation of Vanda’s wise assertion that: “if you are kind to your body, it will respond in an incredible way.”
