Connect to Yourself Through Movement

 
 

Attention is one of your most powerful resources. With it you can bring yourself back to where life is happening: here, in your body, in this moment.

In Feldenkrais® Awareness Through Movement® lessons, you use your attention to learn something about how you move. As you practice, you build self-awareness, recognize your habits, and find new and more expansive ways of moving.

The benefits include pain relief, greater range of motion, and an increased pleasure in the movements of daily life, including walking, bending, reaching, dancing, and more.

And because how you move affects how you see the world, you may also find you can think more clearly, solve problems more readily, and ride the waves of emotions more easily.

If you’re looking to improve how you move—and learn something about yourself in the process—join me for a workshop or a private lesson.

 

 
 

 

Upcoming Workshops

Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement classes are open to all ages. Lessons may take place standing, sitting, or lying down. Modifications are always offered. No previous experience with the Feldenkrais Method is necessary. If you have special needs or circumstances, please contact me.

 
 
 
 

Inhabit Yourself

February 9, 2019
10:00 am – noon
Izlind Integrative Wellness Center

Do you know where you are in space? Or (to paraphrase James Joyce) do you live a short distance from your body? Do you have access to how you feel from the inside? The Feldenkrais Method is a gentle movement practice that uses intention and attention to increase your self-awareness and improve how you move. As you learn new ways to inhabit yourself, you will not only move with greater ease, but you will find yourself becoming more of who you are.

Walking the Feldenkrais Way

Finding Dynamic Balance Through Movement
With Anastasi Siotas and Jenn Brown

June 14-16
Omega Institute for Holistic Studies
Rhinebeck, New York

As toddlers we learned to walk through a process of trial and error that was chaotic and haphazard. While it worked, we developed habits of movement that aren’t very elegant or efficient—and might even be causing us pain us as adults.

Luckily, It’s never too late to re-learn this essential skill. This weekend we explore how to walk with greater comfort, power, and ease with the Feldenkrais Method, a way of learning that uses movement to enhance self-awareness, improve function, and relieve pain.

 

What is an Awareness Through Movement Class Like?

 
 

 

Private Lessons

With a private lesson you can get individual attention to achieve a specific goal, like improve performance, increase athletic capacity, or alleviate pain.

Currently, I’m authorized to teach Awareness Through Movement (ATM) lessons and in training to offer hands-on Functional Integration (FI) lessons. While most private sessions are FI lessons, until I’m authorized to teach FI, one-on-one work will be customized ATM lessons.

Cost: $65–$85 sliding scale

Contact me to set up a private lesson in the Rhinebeck, New York area.

 

 

Movement is life. Life is a process. Improve the quality of the process and you improve the quality of life itself.
