These classes emphasize the benefits of well-organized movement and the importance of knowing how to move to facilitate greater comfort and ease. Each workshop has a different focus, but all include specific gentle exercises, done with care and attention, to enable participants to move more freely with greater flexibility and less strain and discomfort. The classes are suitable for almost everyone, but if you have a medical condition please get approval from your doctor and speak with the class instructor. Age 15 and up.
Feldenkrais 1. Feet – Reconnect to your feet for better balance, flexibility and fun. You will be amazed at how good you can feel when the movement and coordination of your feet and ankles are improved. Not only will you feel good, but your balance will quite likely improve. You might also be quite surprised at the benefits for your back, neck, shoulders and more! Feet, often forgotten and neglected, are so important to efficient, balanced, pleasurable movement. Sunday, September 14. 1:00-3:00 p.m. Fee: $18 Members, $24 Community members.
Feldenkrais 2. Knees – Restoring balance and alignment in the entire body for healthier knees. Knee pain can be dramatically reduced by improving balance and alignment in the rest of the body. When we are off-balance and misaligned our knees feel this because we are unable to shift our weight from one leg to the other in an even way. Over time, this leads to wear and tear on the knees. Discover how improving the way the knees coordinate with the rest of your body can bring dramatic improvements to the health of your knees. Sunday, September 28, 1:00-3:00 p.m. Fees: $18 Members, $24 Community Members.
Feldenkrais 3, Hips – Rediscover your hip joints. Do you know where you hip joints are? Some, but not all, people have a conceptual understanding of where the hip joints are. Fewer people have a well-developed kinesthetic sense of the hip joints and the smooth, balanced, powerful coordination that is possible in the hips. Uncover the layers of muscle tension that prohibit optimal hip function and refine your kinesthetic sense of your hip joints for improved balance, walking, running….well, just about everything!
