Starting in October, Francesca White – renowned Feldenkrais practitioner and good friend of Inspiral Bodywork – will be undertaking a series of 5 classes on accessing and strengthening the pelvic floor.  For those that aren’t familiar with Feldenkrais, it is a movement therapy which aims to reduce pain or limitations in movement, to improve physical function, and to promote general wellbeing by increasing students’ awareness of themselves and by expanding students’ movement repertoire.  Fran is a longstanding and outstanding local practitioner, who teaches overseas and has a particular interest in Feldenkrais for performers, especially musicians.  I can attest to the wisdom of her insight and of her extraordinary hands.  I’ll let her tell you more:
