Remember when movement felt free? When moving was fun and easy? When you moved for the sheer 'joy' of moving? Before you grew up. Before you started living in an adult world with computers, cars, offices, television and cell phones.
With the Feldenkrais Method®, you will gain more control over your body. Awareness Through Movement® lessons are taught with students lying on the floor, sitting in a chair or standing and walking. By consciously moving different muscle combinations, rather than targeting only a certain muscle group, you learn to use muscles that have been "forgotten" because of tension or habitual holding. You'll also redevelop your child-like curiosity and playful interest in moving more effortlessly in non-habitual ways, therefore learning to avoid harmful body movement habit patterns that lead to problems, pain or limitations. Re-educate your body and mind. It's never too late to start moving again. Learning can be fun and enjoyable.
How can you regain that joy of moving again, when you feel so far from it? Re-educate your body with Awareness Through Movement workshops, classes or private individual sessions. Individual sessions (Functional Integration®) are 1 hour and are very gentle neuromuscular re-education.
Feldenkrais and craniosacral together create a dynamic way of listening to the body at an even deeper level, listening to lines of tension between structures: visceral, connective tissue, muscular, neurological. For example, a client may have a shoulder with decreased motion due to a line of tension into a lung or heart. Both techniques work well with physical therapy, occupational therapy, surgery, chiropractic and medical procedures.
With our new, larger studio space we have lots of daylight and room to move, explore and play! It's never too late to start. Move well, Move Lightly!
