Movement Inspired by Development
Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement series with Matty Wilkinson
8 WEEK FELDENKRAIS SERIES
11 Bow Street, Somerville, MA
This series is intended for anyone interested in motor learning and developmental movement. Parents, educators, providers serving babies & young children, and those with a desire to learn are welcome.
How do babies learn to move?
What can we learn by exploring movement from a developmental perspective?
How can a deeper understanding of sensory motor development support us and the children in our lives?
You will learn to:
Rediscover how it feels to move like a baby
Re-connect to a sense of ease, curiosity, flexibility and possibility
Understand a baby’s motor learning process & its relationship to other areas of development
Support babies and young children to learn to move with comfort, ease and grace
Learn to recognize how children’s furniture, clothing & equipment impact their motor development
The Feldenkrias Method® of somatic education and the Anat Baniel Method for Children® are innovative, developmentally-based approaches to learning that utilize movement + attention to enhance awareness, clarify and support fundamental movement patterns, increase our range of movement and thought, and refine our ability to learn.
