Walking with Awareness in the Alps

Everlasting Daisies by Robin Murray

This year I have decided to take a different approach to our annual alpine tour with the emphasis on refining your walking technique. Not only will we be spotting birds but also lying in the wildflowers thinking about how our bodies are working and then putting that awareness straight into practise walking the tracks of our magnificent alpine region. The walks are not difficult or lengthy and only a low level of fitness is required.

Here is David’s introduction:

If you take the time to be still and pay attention to the sensations in your body you can learn a great deal about how to balance yourself and move easily.

This workshop will enable you to walk effortlessly by assisting you to read and understand that language of sensation.
In our culture it is easy to get out of touch with your body. To lose sight of what you feel or of when you need to rest. Small stresses, if left unchecked, can over time become big stresses. Little things like sitting for long periods at a workstation or walking with an uneven or jerky rhythm affect you in more ways than you realise.

Snow Gums by Robin Murray
This walk to explore the way you walk is an opportunity to reconnect. To listen to what is going on both within and without you and to bring yourself back into balance.

We will draw upon the ingenious movement explorations of Moshe Feldenkrais and FM Alexander before and after each section of the journey. The warm up and cool down explorations will refine your sense of your body and how to move it well. As you journey deeper into the mountains you journey deeper into both the experience of your body and the awareness of where you are.

Flame Robin by David Simpson
We are seeking to reveal effortless movement by stripping away the barriers to natural action. It is a wonderful experience and we look forward to sharing it with you.
