Awareness Through Movement® practice = Feldenkrais® Class:
During Awareness Through Movement® classes, student’s attention is directed toward movement experiments. These experiments are structured to inspire learning. What do you learn? At the nervous system level, you are (in a sense) re-wiring patterns, or adding more movement options that you can draw on to help improve how you move through life. From athletic skill, musical instrument performance, to lifting your child, or washing dishes, there is something you can do to find greater ease with less effort.

Paying Attention Makes a Difference:
Students are guided verbally through novel movements. Sometimes these are simple, gentle, and sometimes these are more complex. Guidance is verbal, for the most part, and you are encouraged to explore at your own pace and to honor your own experience. There is not one right way to move here, but rather many different ways from which you will experiment to find the best way for you, at this moment. The movements are for your own learning. Often, students discover their habits, or their difficulties, as well as discovering possibilities they weren’t aware of, and ways to move differently. Through the movement experiments you engage in during class, you’ll discover a sense of better organization that will apply to functional movements of daily life.

We work both with attention to the details, and attention to the whole self. You may find that you use the skill of directing your attention to change the way you attend to yourself beyond the hour in class.
Awareness Through Movement® lessons have sometimes been referred to as “movement meditation” –an apt comparison. Many students report feeling “calmer,” “more grounded,” “clearer,” and other indications of well-being. Students often experience an immediate improvement in their breathing, and find their movements become freer and more pleasurable.

-Classes are done reclining, sitting, standing, or walking. Please dress warmly and comfortably.
-Weekly classes provide regular opportunities for learning and moving well.
