Thank you Sue Lee for this

HEAT AND MS IMPORTANT

Good news is that it is not a relapse - when you cool down you will recover.

Hot water bottles in the freezer cool beds down

Cool scarves (ebay) or a damp teatowel around your neck will cool you down quickly (and who cares what they look like)

Rehydration salts - I would seriously recommend that you take a dioralite every night during this heat because most of you are not drinking enough (we all know why) and you know who you are !!!

Feldenkrais Workshops
Ben Miles, the acclaimed actor, talks about the Feldenkrais Method. Feldenkrais is a method of motor-sensory learning which helps people perform better. Ben talks here about how the gentle, hands-on work, helps him to be more aware of his body in movement; this, in turn, helps him to make smarter decisions as to how to use his body as an actor. /// Video by www.asenseofmovement.com

To all those interested we are starting to look at dates for the Feldenkrais classes at the centre. Dates will be confirmed but please let us know when you are here and we can give you details.

About Feldenkrais
Using gentle movement carried out in lying or sitting, Feldenkrais develops our self-awareness and helps us learn how to find more ease in ourselves. The aim is to learn how to transfer what is learnt within the lesson to ordinary life.
The group lessons are verbally led by the teacher, the student explores the movements themselves, much like a pilates or yoga type class.
