In this series of classes, Drew will present six Awareness Through Movement classes that Moshe Feldenkrais taught repeatedly, whether in his public or training classes. These classes engage our perceptions of thought, feeling, and sensation through the lens of movement. Dr. Feldenkrais returned to a basic vocabulary lessons as touchstones for enhancing our awareness and mobility throughout four decades as he developed the more than 1500 lessons on which the Feldenkrais Method is based. They have been further developed by practitioners in the four decades since his death. These life-enhancing basics can be accessed repeatedly for going deeper into Mindfulness through Movement. Students feel greater mobility in their pelvis, shoulders, neck, and find themselves standing taller and more open as they go about their daily lives.
The largest part of the lessons is taught on the floor. Students should wear comfortable, loose clothing in which they can move freely (sweat clothes are perfect), and will need their own blanket or floor mat and any bolsters or supports they might need to enhance their comfort when lying on the floor.
You are signing up for a 6-week commitment! We can only accept 24 attendees. Please register for this series only if you know for sure that you are able to attend all six classes.
