The morning’s Feldenkrais exercises will focus on gentle extension and how we get more evenly spread movement throughout the vertebral column.

For anyone considering a regular class, it is a wonderful way to increase your body-intelligence and awareness on a weekly basis, and the benefits to your body are the usual Feldenkrais magic – feeling more relaxed, alive, taller, supple and agile.

If you cannot make one of the classes you have paid for, you are welcome to take a make-up Pilates class at Wynberg Pilates instead.
