Upcoming Workshops

All events are led by Nick unless otherwise specified. Workshops are composed of experiential learning through Feldenkrais Method Awareness Through Movement lessons, as well as lecture-discussions, functional exploration and modeling, and often handouts and emailed “homework” lessons and notes to enrich learning.

Nick Strauss-Klein presents a practical Feldenkrais Method exploration of the biomechanics of gait as each participant learns more awareness of their own walking habits, and is guided toward an organization of their feet, legs, and hips that is more pleasurable, efficient, and sustainable over a lifetime.

This event is suitable for newcomers and longtime Feldies alike. It’s fully accessible as a stand-alone workshop, and is also designed to complement the lessons of Nick’s September workshop at The Marsh, Walking with Your Whole Self. Whether you’re an accomplished walker, or you’re injured and wanting to return to walking, this event is for you!

Foot pain or arch trouble? Do you experience aches or stiffness in your feet, knees, hips, or lower back? This workshop will use ATM lessons to explore and enhance the use of your feet and their relationship to the rest of yourself. Using your brain’s extraordinary ability to learn more efficient patterns of movement and action when given the right sensory information, you’ll explore:

  • how a supple, intelligent use of your feet and knees can improve your balance and reduce chronic pain in your feet, legs, and back.
  • how to feel and find the particular use of your feet that most improves your posture.
  • how well-organized feet recruit your legs, back, and breath for powerful athletic movements.

This workshop will include ATM lessons in standing and lying (mostly on your back) positions, and discussion of neuromotor learning and the biomechanics of the foot. After the workshop home study materials will be provided to participants by email.
