Awareness Through Movement® Classes

These classes will introduce you to a powerful method of movement re-education. Your whole body will experience greater freedom and ease of movement. Your posture and ability to relax will improve without conscious effort.

It is habits in the brain which determine the degree of discomfort and dis-ease we feel in the body. These habits were learned earlier in life and can be revised now. the classes are ingenious movements of early childhood, the actions of daily life, and the systematic application of good body mechanics.

Awareness Through Movement® classes are slow and easy to follow, lying on a mat on the floor. By means of these lessons, you can restore comfort and natural movement.

Functional Integration®

The client lies, clothed, on a low padded table. the practitioner moves him/her and guides the person back to movements which have been lost, or forward to movements which have never been tried. Through gentle touch and handling the practitioner restores the experience of easy, safe movement. Feldenkrais explains the purpose of his work in this way: “To make the impossible, possible, the possible easy, and the easy elegant”. He devised a highly sophisticated means to painlessly bring this about. The normal activities of life become easier and more pleasurable.

Sometimes muscles may be painfully tight because they are holding the self in an attitude. The Feldenkrais Method® can help undo a habitual attitude which the person has outgrown. The neutrality of natural posture and integrated movement brings with it a feeling of buoyancy and calm. Specialized skills can be performed with less excess effort and tension. Breathing is restored to its personal unhampered rhythm. Anxiety is reduced.
