“The aim is a body that is organized to move with minimum effort and maximum efficiency not through muscular strength but increased consciousness of how it works”. – Moshe Feldenkrais, D.Sc
These are gentle and precisely focused exercise classes for beginners. Participants report increased mobility, improved flexibility, coordination and balance, and a decrease in pain throughout their body. Potential benefits include reduced stress and anxiety as you experience new and unusual sequences of movements that will help you gain not only a deeper sense of yourself but a richer connection between your brain and your body.
Who should take the Class? Those who have pain, chronic pain, those who would like to improve their posture, and those who would like to improve body awareness and discover easier and more comfortable ways to move. These classes are also for those who have neurological problems like Parkinson’s disease, fribromyalgia, multiple sclerosis.
In a group class, you will be verbally guided through gentle movements, typically while lying on the floor or sitting in a chair.
