Feldenkrais Classes in Philly - October 10, 11, and 12
« on: October 03, 2017, 11:19:28 AM »
I'm offering three Feldenkrais Method®  Awareness Through Movement® classes in Philly next week. These classes are appropriate for anyone--  no movement experience is necessary and physical limitations are not a problem. All three classes will be different, and you can drop-in or take them all. If possible, bring your own towel and/or blanket to lie on. Yoga mats are sometimes helpful also.

Awareness Through Movement® classes are a series of gentle movements with directed attention that excite curiosity while allowing the body and mind to relax. Classes are interesting and enjoyable whether your aim is improve performance, feel more comfortable in daily life, or spend some time in meditative movement. Students increase awareness of themselves and improve comfort and efficiency in movement through self-discovery.

When: October 10, 11, and 12 (Tuesday-Thursday) from 6-7pm
Where: The Art Room, 2329 S. 3rd St. 2nd Floor
How Much: $10 per class or $25 for all three.

Interested, but can't make it this time? Feel free to contact me to inquire about other times and options!

And here's bit more about The Feldenkrais Method®:

The Feldenkrais Method® is a remarkable approach to human movement, learning and change originally developed by Moshe Feldenkrais. The method is based on sound principles of physics, neurology and physiology, and the conditions under which the nervous system learns best. Feldenkrais(sometimes called Feldenkrais therapy) is recognized for the strategies it employs to improve posture, flexibility, coordination, athletic and artistic ability and to help those with restricted movement, chronic pain and tension (including back pain and other common ailments), as well as neurological, developmental and psychological problems.
The Feldenkrais Method explores the biological and cultural aspects of movement,  posture and learning, and how our habits can constrain us to a small portion of our potential. Through our personal history, upbringing, culture, injuries, illness, etc., we each adopt patterns of physical and psychological behavior. These patterns are deeply embedded in our nervous system, and often become outmoded or dysfunctional, creating unnecessary physical, and psychological limitations. The Feldenkrais Method uses a process of organic learning, movement, and sensing to free you from habitual patterns and allow for new patterns of thinking, moving and feeling to emerge.
