General info for Feldenkrais Glasgow classes
If you're looking for ease and flexibility in the way you move, whether you're playing, working or creating, come and try a class. The Feldenkrais Method can do wonders for your sense of wellbeing and creativity, as well as improving your movement and easing pain and discomfort.
The classes last one hour and are taught by Alison McGillivray.
TO BRING WITH YOU: you should wear warm comfortable clothes. There are mats available at the studio.
Alison McGillivray: I am a musician, baroque cello & viola da gamba teacher and Feldenkrais Practitioner. I heard about the Feldenkrais Method from friends who had studied in music colleges abroad. They all described it as being about very small, slow movements that completely and mysteriously transform the way you play. I took my first one-to-one lessons in 2008, recognised what friends had reported, but also felt the ripple effects of the lessons in every other aspect of the way I moved and felt, and not just when I played the cello. It also indirectly addressed the depression I was in at that time. I wanted to know more, and also wanted to be able to pass on this remarkable thing, so went to study to become a practitioner in Switzerland in 2010. I love both the class lessons (Awareness Through Movement) and teaching one-to-one lessons (Functional Integration). I’m particularly interested in the learning and development of the community of Scottish Practitioners.
Movement is life. Life is a process. Improve the quality of the process and you improve the quality of life itself
