Feldenkrais

JOIN US AS WE DELVE INTO THE RICHES of the Feldenkrais® Method! Artfully crafted, 
using principles of physics, neurology, mathematics, psychology, and physiology, these
profound Awareness Through Movement (ATM) lessons challenge the brain to find and
create new movement pathways. You will be gently guided through specific movement
sequences in accessible positions such as sitting, standing and lying. Through this
pleasurable process, designed by Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais (1904-1984), enhanced awareness, increased mobility, and expanded movement options become available. Limiting muscle patterns unwind, pain decreases and performance improves. Participants report positive changes in posture, fuller breathing and a greater ease in moving. For some, heightened mental clarity and sense of overall well-being emerges. The learning process is full of pleasant surprises and personal breakthroughs! These classes are designed for participants of all levels.
