Free Class for Feldenkrais® Week 2013
In the subtitle to Moshe Feldenkrais’ book Awareness Through Movement, he describes the process as “Easy-to-Do Health Exercises to Improve Your Posture, Vision, Imagination, and Personal Awareness.” In these structured movement lessons, the teacher uses a combination of pleasant, purposeful movement and guided attention to lead the class through particular patterns of movement and action. Unlike traditional exercise, where the objective is to burn calories, stretch or train willpower for its own sake, Awareness Through Movement lessons teach us how to reduce unnecessary muscular effort and improve our awareness of our whole self in action. This emphasis on sensory learning results in movement that is more flexible, pleasurable and free from aches and pains.
Open to everyone, no experience necessary. Please wear socks and warm clothing that allows for easy movement.
