The Feldenkrais Method® is an educational system that uses movement to teach self-awareness and improve function. Awareness Through Movement® (ATM), consists of verbally directed movement sequences presented primarily to groups. In ATM lessons, people engage in precisely structured movement explorations that involve thinking, sensing, moving, and imagining. Many are based on developmental movements and ordinary functional activities. Some are based on more abstract explorations of joint, muscle, and postural relationships. The lessons consist of comfortable, easy movements that gradually evolve into movements of greater range and complexity. This class does not require any prior experience and is suitable for all ages.
Please wear warm clothes and bring a mat.
