About the event

No experience is necessary to attend this class. All Feldenkrais concepts are embedded in the lessons provided. 

The Birregurra Awareness Through Movement® Short Burst is part of the Feldenkrais Method® system of movement training.

Short Bursts are easy to follow movement sequences lead by spoken word cues and prompts from a Feldenkrais Practitioner. The participant doesn’t know where the movement is headed or what it “should” look like, which opens an avenue to experience unconscious movement habits and bring them into awareness.

Bringing awareness to movement creates vast possibilities not only in alleviating stress and strain, but in improving the very experience of comfort and fluidity in your body.

Moshe Feldenkrais famously said: “If you know what you are doing, you can do whatever you want.”

We want to create the ability to observe the habitual. To catch ourselves in “the act”, which put more precisely is catching ourselves in the very small but vast space between “the act” and the intention to act. This is the key to unlocking unconscious habits so we may observe, unpack, adapt and adopt.

Through making distinctions for themselves the participant is able to put together a clear image of the movement, to engage in it to their best advantage.

And so a picture is formed, an enhanced self image that is able to be brought into action.

What to expect

Shortr Bursts are around 60 minutes in length and begin in a lying position so bring a blanket or exercise mat to lie on. The movement is gentle to moderate so comfortable clothes are recommended.
