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

This series is inspired by my learning in Jeremy Krauss' Abilities Through Movement Training that I'm enrolled in. Weekly classes will not be recorded.

SERIES INCLUDES BONUS AUDIO DOWNLOADS
Throughout the series I'll create mini Feldenkrais lessons inspired by our learning & play to support your practicing between lessons and after the series ends.

Awareness Through Movement® (ATM) lessons

are verbally guided movement sequences, which help to clarify fundamental biological movement patterns and bring you closer to your potential. By slowing down, reducing your effort, and becoming aware of your habits and preferences in movement, more of your whole self becomes involved in every action. Previously unseen possibilities become available. Your system becomes more efficient and free to move with ease and spontaneity. For most, a difference can be felt after one lesson. Repeated regular attendance deepens your sensitivity and ability to integrate these profound shifts into your everyday movement and life.

The Feldenkrais Method is a path to expand your potential as a human being. Many people come to it for pain or anxiety relief or recovery from a neurological condition and then stay to continue learning into old age. Artists, actors, writers and musicians find the method gives them a more clear access to an embodied self-as-instrument.

By the end of this series you will learn how to give yourself a lesson that is unique to you (in the moment) and built off what you learned in the series.

Moving in gravity is one of the very first skills we learn.

No one teaches us to move. We learn to move, and to move intentionally

Dr. Feldenkrais called it “Organic Learning” and looked for ways to bring us again to this non-verbal learning, either through touch, or through using precise and simple movement directions.

The movements themselves are simple, everyday actions, but they allow us to pay attention to different parts of our body and become aware of how we do what we do.

Then we get a chance to improve our actions.

The brain improves by learning new ways of connecting information from our senses and our language.

The ability to constantly come up with new ways of thinking and acting, to see new options and make new connections keeps us on the path of mental and physical health.

During my 38 years of practicing and studying the Feldenkrais Method, I find myself getting better and better at practicing self-care creatively and effectively. Today, I come up with new solutions to problems naturally, enjoying a huge repertoire of options. Not only did I study the options through the Awareness Through Movement lessons - my brain learned to come up with new ones! I feel a sense of independence in finding solutions.

I find it compelling to try and make this ability available to everyone who is looking for life-enhancing resources and I hope you will join me in this quest.
