What we're about

Movement and Creativity are vital to our lives. When we direct our focus to deepening connections to ourselves, each other and life itself, our experience of life becomes fertile, rich, vibrant.

Movement: classes, workshops, experiments, performances, curiosity, discovery.
Creativity: art, music, process, creation, discussion, experiencing, learning.

The body is the physical aspect of the personality and movement is the personality made visible.- Mary Starks Whitehouse

Curiosity, Compassion & Transformation Feldenkrais Series

Tree of Life Tai Chi Center

12 Week Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement Series with Tiffany Sankary & Matty Wilkinson - Online and In Person $20 Drop-in to First Class Curiosity is where learning begins. Compassion allows us to be present to ourselves in the moment. In Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement lessons we explore our embodied experience of these qualities in movement and rest, intention and action. When we bring kindness and curiosity to our habitual ways of sensing, moving and doing, new possibilities emerge. When we embrace our embodied/moving self in the present moment and integrate our new learning we become more flexible in body, mind and in our lives. “Curiosity is a sign of health in man and in animal.” -Moshe Feldenkrais The Feldenkrais Method was developed by Moshe Feldenkrais, engineer, judo master and student of human development.
