Central Metro Classes

Movement is life. Life is a process. Improve the quality of the process and you improve the quality of life itself.

– Moshe Feldenkrais, D. Sci., 1904-1984

Twin Cities Feldenkrais runs two weekly public Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement (ATM) classes at the St. Paul JCC, located 5 minutes east of MSP airport at 1375 St Paul Ave, St Paul, MN. The JCC is an inclusive, welcoming community center with a full fitness club and pool.

  • Tuesday mornings, 9:30-10:30 am, normally led by Nick Strauss-Klein. Childcare is available, for a fee (call ahead: 651-698-0751).
  • Thursday evenings, 6:00-7:00 pm, normally led by Maggie Vogel-Martin.

Classes run weekly with some exceptions. Always check our homepage or calendar for the upcoming schedule.

Class Description

Move better, feel better! Everything we do in life involves sensation and movement. Deepen the sense of how you move, and discover the profound effect the Feldenkrais Method has on your ability to act with precision, power, and spontaneity. Come to ATM classes to:

  • REDUCE PAIN AND TENSION, and discover how to better prevent or recover from injury.
  • ENJOY your body in motion and improve the quality of your day-to-day life.
  • REFINE your workouts and physical practices like yoga and Pilates.
  • LEARN to organize your whole self – body and mind – more efficiently and pleasurably.
  • UNLOCK a quieter state of mind, a natural neurological response to clarified movement, more skeletally-grounded support, and reduced extraneous effort.

Single classes are $20 for the public, $15 for members of the JCC. Registering for a month of classes offers savings over the single class price, and flexible attendance between the Tuesday and Thursday class is encouraged when you have to miss a class (see below).

Monthly pricing depends on the number of class meetings in the month:

Five classes: $92.50 / $62.50 JCC Member Value Price (MVP)
Four classes: $74 / $50 MVP
Three classes: $55.50 / $37.50 MVP
Two classes: $37 / $25 MVP

Call 651-698-0751 or click here and type “Feldenkrais” into the search bar to register for a month of class.

Flexible attendance policy: Any lessons you miss during the month may be made up in the other ongoing section during that month, and you can even make up an anticipated later absence. For example, if you sign up for the Tuesday class but have to miss two Tuesdays, you may attend any two Thursday classes any time during the current month to make them up, and vice versa. Each class is a unique ATM lesson, so you won’t be repeating a lesson while attending twice in one week to make up missed classes. When you arrive simply tell the teacher you’re doing a make-up.
