Restoring freedom of movement
a weekend Feldenkrais® retreat in Leavenworth, April 6-8, 2018


Imagine moving freely and comfortably, feeling strong, resilient, and confident that you can recover from injury and reset your mood into hopeful serenity.

Come join us at the beautiful Icicle Creek Center for the Arts for a transformative weekend retreat. Gentle Feldenkrais neuro-movement lessons will leave you feeling powerful and fluid. Nia dance is interwoven to add joy and help you sense your immediate improvement in mobility and balance. You’ll leave confident that you can reset yourself into comfort and flexibility on your own.

All ages and abilities are welcome, including people currently experiencing pain and injury, as well as active people who want to get better at their favorite activities! No experience or athletic ability required – just bring your curiosity, desire for improved coordination and ease, and clothes you feel comfortable moving in.
