Awareness Through Movement (The Feldenkrais Method®)

Awareness Through Movement (The Feldenkrais Method®)

“Movement is life. Life is a process. Improve the quality of the process and you improve the quality of life itself.” ~Moshe Feldenkrais~

The Feldenkrais Method® is an unusual melding of motor development, bio-mechanics, and psychology, and it is recognized for its demonstrated ability to improve posture, flexibility, and coordination; to clarify the self-image; and to alleviate muscular tension and pain. Awareness Through Movement® (ATM) consists of verbally directed, gentle exercise lessons involving sophisticated movement sequences. The lessons directly engage our natural intelligence in a gentle and pleasurable way. The method accesses the sensory motor processes of the brain and involves attention, perception, imagination, and cognition and harnessing the nervous system's ability to self-organize towards more effective and intelligent action.  Awareness Through Movement® lessons address every joint and muscle group in the body and every human function. (Open to all ages and abilities.)
