Deborah is a Feldenkrais Trainer whose remarkable career of teaching and study has included a doctorate of Physical Therapy and decades of experience in Tai Chi, dance, and yoga. Her work has been profoundly important to my own practice and understanding of the Feldenkrais Method, especially her lessons about the pelvic floor, and teachings about chronic pain. I’m thrilled she’s leading our weekly class in July as I enjoy a much-delayed family vacation.

The Feldenkrais Project presents
Organizing the Core and Pelvic Floor System
with guest teacher Deborah Bowes
Tuesdays in July, 9:30-10:30 AM Central time, with live discussion after class
This Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement series of four classes will explore how to improve the coordination and strength of your “core” muscles. Core strength is much more than contracting your abdominal muscles. The power and strength comes from the appropriate use of the pelvic floor, your breathing, the spinal muscles, the abdominals, and the hips while engaging in full body movements. The Feldenkrais Method offers the chance to notice sensations and the effects of these movements on your sense of vitality and well-being.
You may find that you have better balance, easier breathing, more comfortable sitting, standing or walking. Also, anyone with digestive or continence issues are likely to experience improvement in that as well.
