Moving from your centre

Moving from your centre

‘The centre that we use in Feldenkrais is the tanden as in Judo or tan t’ien in T’ai Chi (two inches or so below the navel). My teacher, Russell Delman, calls it ‘the golden ball’. I guess it is a little higher than the hips. And actually, in terms of physics and biomechanics, the centre of gravity can be much higher, depending on the position you are in and the movement you are making.’ Veronica Rock

Friday 20th May

Life Centre Romiley

12-45 for 1pm start

As Veronica says, this idea will be familiar to anyone who practices martial arts and  T’ai Chi.
