Local artist Anita White's artwork added to website header rotation

You may have noticed a new bit of fun art shows up as my website header every 10 clicks or so. I’m so happy I finally scanned it and can now share it with you with the artist’s permission!

Below is the un-cropped full version of what local Twin Cities artist Anita White made for me after attending a class I taught. I love the relaxed, perhaps slightly spacey “somanauts” in the photo. Doesn’t it capture beautifully that lovely feeling of diving deep into the inner world of an Awareness Through Movement lesson?

Art after an ATM

And thanks for the beautiful art, Anita!

Added new free lesson, The Hip Joints: Moving Proximal Around Distal

Construction noise has quieted down at the JCC and I captured a good recording of yesterday’s class. I’m so pleased to offer you this new free streaming audio lesson, the first I’ve been able to record in a while. Have a pillow or two nearby, and please enjoy The Hip Joints: Moving Proximal Around Distal.

New York Times Article: Feldenkrais for Chronic Pain

I had long refrained from writing about this method of countering pain because I thought it was some sort of New Age gobbledygook with no scientific basis. Boy, was I wrong!

–  Jane Brody, New York Times personal health columnist

This week the New York Times published an article in print and online called Trying the Feldenkrais Method for Chronic Pain, by Jane Brody. Brody has been writing about personal health for the Times for over 40 years, and it’s fantastic news for our community that she’s taken an interest in Feldenkrais and benefitted so much. She acknowledges her misconceptions (above) as she begins; let’s hope her article will help other people understand it better!

The article is a quick read and does a nice job summarizing the method and her experience as a new student.

Want to help get the word out about Feldenkrais? Leave a comment at the bottom of the Times article. It really makes a difference for exposure for the article and the method!
