Feldenkrais: Awareness Through Movement®, students learn a direct and effective means for healing pain, while also improving posture, flexibility and coordination. Over time, we each adopt physical and psychological habits, often constraining us to a small portion of our movement potential, and creating unnecessary physical limitations, injury, or chronic pain. Classes are non-competitive and students move according to their own comfort level and progress at their own rate. The emphasis is on sensory learning. The lessons are of benefit to everyone wishing to move with greater comfort and ease.
