Public Seminar

Your Sense of Balance (2-day online seminar)

with Jaime Polanco

A large amount of brain area and nuclei in our nervous system are dedicated to balance and equilibrium. This in itself  tells us what an important function our sense of balance is and that it deserves our awareness and attention. 

From birth, we are equipped with a series of reflexes related  positional changes in relation to gravity. Throughout our development these reflexes are transformed into a highly effective coordination that eventually allows us to stand and move with our head upright.

But a good sense of balance is not only related to the position of standing or the ability to not fall. It also influences the quality of all our movements, from raising an arm to reaching for a distant object, playing a sport or an instrument.

In this Feldenkrais workshop we will explore some of the strategies used by our nervous system to create our sense of balance. You will be able to understand, through a series of Feldenkrais lessons, the intelligence with which the brain combines the senses, the body-scheme, and proprioceptive and environmental information in order to achieve good balance.

This webinar will take place live via the online conference software "Zoom". It includes lessons in Awareness through Movement (so-called "ATMs"). Please make sure that you have a mat or blanket available for the exercises when the class begins. A flat pillow (for example a towel) is also advisable, just make sure it is not too thick or too soft.

You can participate in the webinar using a computer, tablet or smartphone, your camera and microphone do not need to be turned on to participate.
