Power of the Pelvis
The Power of the Pelvis is a 2 CD Workshop designed to activate and enliven your vital center. Athletes, martial artists and performing artists rely on the power of the pelvis for peak performance. It is the source of spontaneity and joy, as well as the seat of challenge for anyone who has had an injury, illness or trauma that has compromised pelvic mobility. These Awareness Through Movement® lessons were developed by Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais, who spent over 40 years researching movement, learning systems and neuroplasticity. Dr. Andrew Weil has called the Feldenkrais Method® "more effective than physical therapy." The lessons in this workshop have been chosen for their ease, effectiveness and ability to integrate the function of the pelvis into daily activities. This CD is for anyone looking for greater ease of movement, increased vitality, and a better understanding of the pelvis' role in a satisfying life.
