The Art of Walking
A Feldenkrais/Qi Gong Workshop
Taught by Stephen Opper and Lavinia Plonka
Saturday, June 3, 1 – 5 PM
Register through http://laviniaplonka.com/product/the-art-of-walking/
Learn to step lightly, avoid injury and enjoy longer, more refreshing walks. Reduce aches and pains and discover the intelligence of your own body’s ability to navigate both gravity and ground forces.
Lavinia and Stephen are combining skills and strategies to bring you better balance, easier propulsion and more power to your walk.
I will be approaching walking from a diversity of perspectives: clinical bodywork, movement, martial arts, Qi Gong, biomechanics, evolutionary biology, and anthropology.
Lavinia Plonka is an internationally recognized body- language expert. She has taught The Feldenkrais Method® for over 25 years and is a level CL4 teacher of the Alba Method. Her popular workshops explore the intersection between movement, emotions and the mind. She is currently the director of Asheville Movement Center in Asheville, NC.

“Stephen Opper's Natural Movement System is both methodical and intuitive; like the gears of a clock range of motion is explored throughout the body joint by joint. In one hour I came away with stretches, stances, and especially theory that targeted some of the stickiest parts of my body.” Daniel J. Asheville
