Finding ease in your movement directly impacts your everyday life. 

Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement lessons develop your ability to pay attention to yourself while you are moving, being, acting in the world. In the lessons, performing a specific movement is not as important as attending to HOW you move. How do you experience moving from intention to action? 

The benefit is greatest when you do less. That is the power of neuroplasticity.

Neuroplasticity = brain’s ability to CHANGE

The process of attending to your sensation and reducing your effort in the lessons will teach you strategies for finding ease and new options in other areas of your life. The lessons are like structured playgrounds to experiment inside of. The process mirrors how a baby learns to move. We learn through exploration.

In this program you will learn ways to:

  • Reduce tension, pain and stress
  • Increase flexibility, stability and comfort
  • Make changes in your environment to support upright posture
  • Improve the quality of your movement and your self awareness
  • Develop resilience through curiosity and experimentation
  • Care for yourself and listen to creative impulses
  • Bring ease into your daily life

"I enjoyed the nature of the classes very much. They helped me to become a better observer of my own body and mind. I am more aware of how my body has moved unconsciously and how this can change -- It is a very introspective process and one of the best ways to develop body intelligence." 
- Mr. Kim, Dancer

 

PRACTICE IN COMMUNITY

If you have experienced the Feldenkrais Method you know the power of the process. It is life changing. (And if you are new to the method, welcome!) 

One way to keep the practice alive and integrating into all areas of your life is to do it regularly. Even though we may practice alone, there is power in doing the lessons within a group context. Practicing in community supports your deepening awareness, adding a richness and encouragement to show up more fully.
 

WHAT YOU WILL NEED FOR THE ONLINE CLASSES:

  •  some space on the floor to lie down or sit (depending on the lesson)
  •  a mat or blanket 
  •  a computer or phone

We will use a software called Zoom. It is super easy to use, even for those not comfortable with computers. You have the option to turn your video camera on or off during the class at any time. You can also access the classes via telephone. Everyone will receive a copy of the recorded live classes, so if you need to miss a class you will still be able to practice.
