Detox Weekend! Restore, Rejuvenate, Restart.

In these three days, Paul offers very different Feldenkrais lessons for you to appreciate the vitality you have within. The shortest day of the year is behind us, and it's time to reawaken. Begin the new year by returning to something classically essential: your breathing. On day two, rejuvenate your spirit by looking up and remembering that you have all the ingredients within to see higher in life. On the third day, enhance your ability to be more dimensional and available to all that is around you.

Join Paul Pui Wo Lee, Feldenkrais® practitioner, dancer, and current choreographic assistant/rehearsal director at Of Curious Nature in Bremen, Germany, for a Feldenkrais session he has devised especially for musicians.

The Feldenkrais Method® looks at improving the efficiency, dexterity, and ease of one’s movements by slowing down and exploring non-habitual movements that shed light onto better ways to move. Musicians move with their instruments in a dance to soundscapes for themselves and others to enjoy. The movements are not meant to be “correct,” but they help one to develop better listening to “how” one moves to eliminate unnecessary efforts.

In Paul's Feldenkrais® classes, you will learn to cultivate your sensitivity (your “ears” if you will) to continually develop refined motor skills that could improve your performance and well-being in your profession, not to mention your enjoyment of your craft. Since performing with Scottish Ensemble as a dancer in “Goldberg Variations”, Paul has been inspired to share Feldenkrais with musicians for greater artistic flair, which is not unrelated to creativity in playing technique. Through his lessons, you will come away with more ways to become more connected with yourself and your instrument, and have more orientation and practices to help you move away from pain, discomfort and injuries, and give you more secure ground to grow as an artist. We have relied on habits from our training to arrive at the professional levels we are at now, and the Feldenkrais Method® guides us to safely acquire other possibilities that lie outside of what we currently know so we have smarter, sounder and more fun ways to mature our art.
