FELDENKRAIS

Awareness Through Movement®: Tap the Power of your Brain to Improve your Physical Skills

Rediscover your innate capacity for easy, graceful, efficient yet powerful movement using The Feldenkrais Method® of movement education. This revolutionary approach to skill development taps the power of the brain and central nervous system to create startling changes in your neuromuscular organization and coordination. Your involuntary limiting movement habits will dissolve and you will emerge from class more relaxed, grounded, and powerful. Results include tension and pain relief, increased flexibility and coordination, and improved breathing, alignment, posture, balance, strength, and control. Simply put: when you move better, you feel better. An invaluable adjunct to your yoga or Pilates practice, this class will make your challenging yoga postures more accessible to you. Adults of all ages and abilities are welcome.  Designed for both yoga and non-yoga practitioners alike.

Weekly ongoing classes are grouped into 8-week sessions with each session exploring a particular topic. While each class stands on its own (and drop-in students are more than welcome), we and our students find it beneficial (and more fun!) to explore a topic in depth over many weeks.

Unlocking the Secrets of the Knees and Ankles

Your knee is the bridge between your feet and your pelvis — with dual responsibility for transmitting the force from the ground to your pelvis and spine as well as for absorbing the same force, depending on your activity.  It is both a powerful and vulnerable joint.  For your knee to maintain its functionality and health throughout your life, it must work in conjunction with your ankle, your hip, and your spine.  Immerse yourself knee-deep in this series of classes and discover the intimate relationship between the ankle, knee and hip joint. As you refine your coordination, you’ll enjoy newfound freedom, skill, comfort, and power in the use of your legs in your daily activities.

This is an 8-week series of classes, designed to explore this topic in depth. The more classes you attend, the more your skill will improve. However, each class is also designed to stand on its own. You are more than welcome to drop-in to whichever class(es) fit best into your schedule.
