Renewal Retreat: Yoga, Meditation and Feldenkrais from the perspective of neuroplasticity, healing and healthy aging
Join Debra Lerman, licensed physical therapist and guild certified Feldenkrais Practitioner, and Joanna Dunn, 500 Hour Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher and Teacher Trainer for a week-long retreat in Costa Rica!
As we age, we get stuck in old patterns and habits of movement and thought, yet there is great potential for renewal through these combined practices. Feldenkrais Method gently and systematically reorganizes the nervous system and body for ease of movement. Meditation breaks old patterns of thought and emotion creating new neural pathways and building grey matter. Yoga soothes the nervous system and gives space for integration and healing. A week-long immersion in a quiet, beautiful and serene location allows a deeper integration and lasting change.
Tentative Daily Schedule – Everything is optional. Take the time to rest or go an adventure!
✓ Each day will begin with sunrise meditation and practice of silent reflection. Students are invited to journal or take a morning walk on the beach.
✓ Following a light breakfast, we will gather for our morning practice: either a Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement session with Debra or an all levels alignment-based yoga practice with Joanna. After our morning practice, we’ll break until lunch. A walk or further journaling and reflection is welcome.
✓ After lunch, we’ll gather for lectures and discussion about neuroplasticity, meditation and more.
✓ Prior to dinner, we’ll again gather for either a Feldenkrais Session or a Restorative/Gentle Yoga Session.
✓ We’ll close our evenings with meditation.
✓ Both Debra and Joanna are available for one-on-one private sessions during break time.
