“The aim is a person that is organized to move with minimum effort and maximum efficiency, not through muscular strength, but through increased consciousness of how movement works.” --Moshe Feldenkrais, Ph.D
Everyone knows that living depends on breathing. We may not be aware of how the quality of our breath affects the quality of our movement.
In this workshop we’ll explore how breath can free movement. And we’ll use breath as a tool to become more aware of our whole physical self.
Limit: 12 students. WORKSHOP IS FULL as of 9/3/12.
Requirement: Please be comfortable lying on your back, stomach, or side, and floor sitting.
Cost: $35 in advance; $45 at the door if there's room. Register on the Dallas Shambhala website.

The workshop will include:
- 2 Awareness Through Movement® (ATM) lessons
In ATM classes, the instructor guides students through a series of movement sequences organized around a particular function. The lessons consist of comfortable, easy movements that gradually evolve into greater range and complexity.
What to wear: Wear several layers of loose-fitting clothing.
The Feldenkrais Method is a remarkable approach to human movement, learning and change based on sound principles of physics, neuroscience and physiology, and the conditions under which the nervous system learns best. The techniques and theory were developed by Moshe Feldenkrais, D.Sc. [masked]), a physicist and the first Western black belt in judo.
Instructor Angela Alston began practitioner training in 2005 at the Feldenkrais Institute of New York, and graduates in September from the Feldenkrais Center of Houston. She was certified to teach ATM classes in 2008 and offers a regular series at MoveStudio. Angela has studied a variety of movement forms, including dance and yoga. She has practiced meditation since 1996.
