The interactive work proposed by François Combeau during these post-graduate workshops allows each participant to develop the capacities necessary for an efficient and creative practice of the Feldenkrais Method®, (ATM and IF), easily adaptable to the individual needs of their students. Independently of specific themes, the work is based around “how does one sense, imagine, propose, invite and accomplish” rather than “what does one do”. From the many workshops given outside of France, this approach has proved extremely satisfactory for many practitioners.

« Seat, mobility, strength and life of the Pelvis »

 

Nürnberg (Germany) : September 1 – 5, 2021
Teaching will be in English

 

Via the lower limbs and the feet, the pelvis is the dynamic expression of our relationship with the ground and our bearings.

The positioning of the pelvis in relation to the legs ensure a stable and functional foundation for the trunk, arms and head. As such, it contributes to the equilibrium of the spinal column and the back.

Indeed, be it for stability in standing or in sitting, the liberty of the pelvis in relation to the legs (therefore the freedom in the hip joints) influences the dynamics of the joint between the sacrum and the lumbar spine (L5/S1) and stimulates the true reflex of the spine for upright posture. This allows the back to be carried erect, while maintaining force and mobility with minimum muscular engagement thus also allowing the development of deeper and fuller breathing.

Due to the insertion of the strong muscles in the abdominal wall and base of the back, which line the mobile space between the base of the chest, the hip ridge and the pubis, the pelvis is the actual centre of movements and the seat of strength in man.

Its balance and freedom of movement play a crucial part in the organisation of many functions, such as breathing, digestion, sexual activity, walking etc.

Through awareness situations and the exploration of easy but unusual movements, each of us will re-acquire improved mobility of the lumbar column through more functional and differentiated use of each vertebra.

By relaxing the abdominal wall and posterior pillars of the diaphragm during singing, we shall breathe more freely and gain flexible tonicity of abdominal support. The proposed explorations will also provide an opportunity for discovering the deep vibrations in the bottom of the back and the abdomen down to the perineum.

“A mobile Head ; an alive, expressive, relaxed Face and more functional freedom for facial and mouth organs ”

 

Helsinki : September 25th – 26th, 2021
Teaching will be in English

 

When true verticality returns, the head (the bearer of the sensory and expressive functions) being functionally supported from the feet, recovers total freedom of movement. By standing upright man expresses his specificity, and his considerably expanded field of observation and action.

This new balance and great freedom of movement, allowed a considerable development of the sensory functions and in particular, the widening of visual, auditory and olfactory fields, along the depth perception and clearness of contours…

Consequently, allowing man the possibility of increasing fine differentiation of the facial organs, given access to articulated language, the vehicle of thought, and facial mimicry expressing all kind of emotions becoming language by itself and the mirror of our major dynamisms and the instrument of an authentic dialogue.

In other words all these functions and movements of facial organs, depend on the balance of the head and the freedom of each cervical vertebra. And the same time, the way we use those expressive and sensory instruments affect or influence the freedom and mobility of the neck and more generally of the all spine.

Seat, mobility, strength and life of the Pelvis 

 

Zurich: February 3rd – 6th, 2021

An energy center, the link with the original matrix, the pelvis is truly the seat of life.

Via the lower limbs and the feet, the pelvis is the dynamic expression of our relationship with the ground and our bearings.

The positioning of the pelvis in relation to the legs ensure a stable and functional foundation for the trunk, arms and head.  As such, it contributes to the equilibrium of the spinal column and the back.
