Awareness through Movement®
In a group lesson you are guided through a series of movements that promote a relaxed yet focused state. The movements enable you to understand and modify your habitual movement patterns, which may have developed in response to injury or restricted posture. A non-judgmental atmosphere allows people of all ages and abilities to learn at their own pace.
Lessons take place lying on the floor, or sometimes sitting. Some movements in the sequence are familiar, while others are unfamiliar. Each new movement is repeated and explored, enabling you to make it easier, and to begin to play with unaccustomed movement relationships. By engaging your curiosity, gently and at your own rate, you learn to explore the world of your internal sensation. This awareness creates a wider range of movement possibilities, which we start to incorporate into our lives, leading to improved posture and easier movement.
In the words of Dr. Feldenkrais ..."... self-knowledge through awareness is the goal of reeducation.As we become aware of what we are doing in fact, and not what we say orthink we are doing, the way to improvement is wide open to us."
