~ strenghten your upper back

Who is this for?
~ These workshops are open to all. No previous experience necessary.
~ For those who practice the Feldenkrais Method: We often use the Feldenkrais Method to make ourselves and others looser and more flexible; more ‘dissolved’, but some of us need more ‘glue’ to keep us together and solidify us.
~ For those who practice Bones for Life – You will find this a very fitting addition and compliment to the understanding and use of the upright position.
~ For those who practice Pilates – you will gain a new perspective and understanding of the positions used in Pilates and how to improve your practice in them
~ For those that practice Yoga – you will find original ways to assist your daily practice
In this unique 2 part Seminar Series there will be a large number of sequences of taught. The lessons and sequences can be applied directly to your own personal health and well-being practices.
Part 1: is done almost exclusively in standing and some sitting in a chair.
Part 2: is done in a variety of positions such as on the back, in a chair as well as standing.
About Jeremy’s teaching:
“I completed Solvents & Glue Part 1, and I’m eager to do Part 2. Jeremy’s teaching is clear and his pacing is just right—I felt calm yet energized after each Zoom session. The lessons are stimulating, challenging and fun. My hip-joint pain is gone and has not returned. I practice S&G lessons by myself, with colleagues and clients.” — Jaclyn Boone, Feldenkrais teacher, JKA practitioner, Pilates instructor
“Jeremy’s class was one of the most worthwhile classes I have taken in years. He is that rare teacher with knowledge, compassion and empathy for his students. I really felt he wanted us to learn and appreciated that for each of us it was a personal process. I felt free to ask questions. I took home concrete new ways to work and problem solve with my students.” -Karen Donelson, Feldenkrais Assistant Trainer
“Jeremy Krauss inspires you to new levels of learning and creating. He has a true understanding of the Feldenkrais Method® and communicates this through his actions and his words. Jeremy integrates current scientific trends with the work. When you complete a course with Jeremy, you have a greater appreciation of what is and a perception of the infinite possibilities of what could be.” -Ada Griffith-Valentine, Physical Therapist and Feldenkrais Practitioner

What People are Saying about Solvents and Glue:
“I feel really grateful for this research! Coming out of several important injuries over the last years, I suffered more and more the loss of stability and mobility. Meanwhile I felt unable to identify in which way I should improve… Doing your exercises allowed me to sense where stability would come from again and I felt a huge pleasure to go for it following your path… I felt energized and woken up getting an idea henceforward how to proceed and found hope and confidence! I feel more and more stability. I improve my sense of balance again and feel more free and secure descending stairs for example, or descending steep hillsides. After 1.5 years, walking finds some flow again, even if one leg is still more heavy and stiff. Also my breath gets easily deeper and my upper body can somehow relax on stable feeling legs.” – Fitzi
“I am 76 with arthritic joints and a left hip replacement 22 years ago. Given the unconscious accommodations my body has made over the years, I found the precise approach in S+G has helped me pin point the areas of compensation and learn to get back to ‘normal’ movement. I find with practicing the movements on my own, I have increased lower extremity strength, improved balance and upright posture. The Solvents and Glue approach focuses on precise strengthening in the context of the connectedness of one body part to the whole body…the ultimate closed chain approach. For those who are familiar with the Feldenkrais approach, S+G applies awareness of the connectedness of the movement of one body part with the entire body and adds a strengthening component.” – Ann Strand
“I love the results I get from S&G 1. I had injury on my left hip & left shoulder. I ofter feel stiffness on my left SI joint & posterior part of my left shoulder on certain movements. After the course, I can feel the connection on my left hip, that I usually feel less powerful than the right hip. And the movement become clearer on my left hip and I get better ROM on that hip. My left shoulder getting better as well. Overall, I love your work! Looking forward to S&G 2!” – Jessica Lau, Pilates teacher Indonesia
