Group classes

Hi all - Xmas break: the 5:30pm Tuesday 12 December class will be the last of the year, re-starting first Tuesday in February
Regards, Conrad



When

5:30pm Tuesday evenings for 45 to 60 minutes

Every week (with a Christmas / New Year break)

Where

PATAKA Art + Culture in central Porirua (see map and directions)

We use the Education Space room, evening access through the iron gate at the corner of Pataka closest to the Arena

In case of (heaven forbid) my having to cancel a class, please check this webpage before class or subscribe to the Body Reset SMS text list

Cost

First class free then $15 per class

What if I can't make every class?

Just come to those you can: each one is an independent lesson

What should I wear?

Ordinary, comfortable, everyday clothes, that won't restrict movement

What should I bring to class?

If you would like to bring your own wide mat or large towel to lie on please do, but I have a number of mats for use (in Feldenkrais we usually use wider and thicker mats than say Yoga and Pilates). Most important, bring a willingness to spend an hour focusing on yourself rather than the troubles of the day

What should I plan for after?

Ideally, don't plan anything for immediately after a class: give yourself some quiet time to absorb the neuro-muscular learnings into your daily habits

What ages?

Suitable for all ages from late teens to seniors

OK if I'm injured?

In my experience, the Feldenkrais Method is the best for injury recovery, as it teaches you to avoid (or 'reset') the misuse and asymmetries that cause or maintain most injuries in the first place. Please contact me if unsure about a serious injury

OK if I'm pregnant?

The only limitation is that if heavily pregnant some of the moves, e.g. on the stomach, would be unwise. If you let me know in advance, I can ensure that the lesson is suitable

I'm too shy or self-conscious to join a group

Don't be: it's my job to create a comfortable and non-threatening learning environment. But I also offer individual sessions

Do you do Wellington classes?

No, but I recommend Sue Field from Body Balance, who does

I can also provide classes on demand, or customised workshops for your sport or interest group: see an example paddling workshop. Please don't hesitate to call or email to discuss. I can manage small groups at my Titahi Bay home studio, larger groups will require a venue.
