The Gift of Awareness Through Movement

Movement is essential in releasing the body patterns of anxiety, stress, grief, worry…

One of the gifts of a Feldenkrais practice is broadening our capacity to know thyself. To learn, not only better movement, but better ways to think, adapt, create and be with the challenges of living a full life.   

There is a synergy when many people simultaneously are connecting deeply with themselves. And in this creative space we breath more fully, we discover potential that was not previously imaginable, we mitigate fears of helplessness and open doors of resilience and hope we didn’t even know that we had.

Verbally Guided Movement Puzzles

Prioritizing the quality of the movement rather than the achievement of it, students engage their curiosity, let go of will and solve each puzzle in their own timing.  The learning is fun, challenging and often times surprising. Slowing down and reducing your efforts, you will investigate and discover unconscious preferences and habits of action.  Whether you are interested in getting rid of everyday aches and pains, improving your  athletic or artistic performance or coping with a chronic health issue…

FELDENKRAIS WILL EMPOWER YOU to become your own teacher. Students of the Feldenkrais Method are endlessly astounded that doing less can lead to so much more flexibility, power, spontaneity, ease, freedom, ability, joy…..

The Importance of REST

The rest in an ATM lesson is a vital part of the learning process.
PAUSE…..

  • gives our brain a chance to notice what has changed as a result of the movement experiment. 
  • gives us a chance to refresh our attention. 
  • gives us time to notice our breath and our contact with the floor.
  • gives us a sense of rejuvenation that inspires renewed interest and curiosity in what we are exploring. 
  • is a vital part of the creative process.

For this reason, I build in pauses in my teaching schedule.

If you identify as upper or middle class, are currently employed at a stable salaried position, retired comfortably or with a 401K, own a home, have a vacation budget and/or have limited debt, please consider the abundant access to resources price level.
