Bringing mind and body together in a potent but lighthearted Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement (ATM) exploration, internationally-known Feldenkrais teacher Nick Strauss-Klein returns to The Marsh for the first of several back-to-basics events this fall.
Suitable for Feldenkrais newcomers as well as longtime students of the method, this class features a brief discussion of the principles of biomechanics, neurology, and learning that create and sustain healthy movement, followed by a full ATM lesson illustrating these principles in participants’ own sensations and movement, as they develop a freer, more comfortable, more supportive spine. The process is gentle and pleasant, and adaptable for anyone – the only prerequisite is being able to lie down on a mat on the floor.
Want to know more about Feldenkrais?
Way before the idea of a mind-body connection became a popular health concept, Moshe Feldenkrais promoted his technique’s potential to lead us away from bad physical habits that cause tension and pain and to restore the body’s capacity for efficient, flexible, coordinated movement. Now known as the Feldenkrais Method, this approach centers around the idea that the brain can be retrained to reorganize the way we move our bodies, eliminating unnecessary and harmful patterns.
Is the Feldenkrais Method for me?
In short, YES! Everyone can benefit. With Feldenkrais you can:
• Enhance Flexibility and Balance
• Prevent and Recover from Injury
• Improve Skills and Performance
• Relieve Chronic or Acute Pain
• Gain Coordination and Strength
This workshop will help you tune into your own sensations and movement to develop a freer, more comfortable, more supportive spine. Open to all, includes work lying on a mat on the floor (provided).
