Vitality and freedom for your pelvis

An Inteligent Movement® workshop with Ernesto Cortés

Your pelvis is the center of your power. Anatomically and functionally, it a crucial point of your body, because this is where the legs and the spine articulate to move you in the world. It is home to the strongest muscles of your muscular system and for many cultures it has a special meaning from the spiritual and mystical point of view.

When your pelvis is free and you are more conscious of how you use it, all your actions become easier, more efficient and pleasant. This 5-session workshop is intended to raise your awareness and to help you gain a better access to how you use yourself from your center of power.

Move with pleasure

The freedom of the pelvis is often limited by chronic pain, bad posture habits and cultural taboos. This workshop is a safe and respectful space to recover the use of your motor center in all its capacity.

After many years with back pain and after going through countless therapies, I have found in Intelligent Movement a much more efective and loving way to recognize and restore my body. After every session I feel a deep sense of relaxation and comfort with my body, as if every part of it returned to its natural place.  Ernesto’s guidance is clear and rhythmic, so his instructions are easy to follow and they help you identify the effects of every movement. This is undoubtedly a deep exercise of attention and dialogue with the body and its possibilities.

What are these classes like?

This workshop is based on the methodology of Intelligent Movement®, a body awareness method that enhances your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. It works with directed attention and small, pleasant movements that help you become more conscious of the posture and movement patterns that may have become habitual in you, but that you can transform for your benefit.

In these classes we don't stretch or hold specific poses; what we do is a gentle exploration of how you use yourself and how you can improve your actions by being more conscious of them. The movements are painless, within the range of your comfort, and this is a non-invasive technique.

There is no model to follow and no hands-on work involved. You advance at your own rhythm and the teacher guides you gently and respectfully towards a more integrated use of your body.
