GEORGIE'S MISSION

“My aim is to reawaken our mind’s control of movement, release unnecessary tension and find dynamic alignment; true flexibility, and ease within the body.”

WHO IS GEORGIE FERRARO?

 Georgie Ferraro has been teaching Pilates for 20 years. She is fully qualified through the Pilates Foundation and is on the Register of Exercise Professionals as a level 3 instructor

 

Her background is in Psychology (BA hons/M.A.)  and in therapeutic work with children and adults.

 

With Pilates as her foundation, Georgie has gone on to both study and practice:

 

Gryokinesis (Julio Horvath)

Franklin Method (Eric Franklin)
Hanna Somatics (Thomas Hanna)


Georgie personally practices Alexander Technique and Feldenkrais, so they both also inform her work.

From this journey, Georgie has developed her own unique approach to teaching mind-body movement. The result is a successful fusion of techniques including the use of pilates exercises, experiential anatomy,  dynamic alignment using imagery and improvisation and muscle release via ball rolling and pandiculation.

 

She also teaches breathing and constructive rest as a daily essential practice.

Course Overview

A one day comprehensive introduction to the Principals, Techniques and Theory of Somatic Movement Education. Discover how the brain creates habits and produces compensatory patterns of tension in the body. Why this method called “Hanna Somatics” is so successful in deleting muscular pain and tension. Experience techniques only used in Hanna Somatics, which restores ease and fluidity in movement. Explore key movements designed to rebalance your movement from head to toe.
 
*This course is a prerequisite to the Align Somatics Teacher Training.

DISCOVER THE JOY OF PAIN FREE LIVING

 Georgie offers you the chance to begin a dialogue with your body. Tension is the body’s enemy and is responsible for much of the pain we experience.

 

Developing awareness of your movement and learning to relax tight muscles disperses tension and restores function.

 

Her approach is both restorative and energising and can be described as a true body-mindfulness practice.
