Feldenkrais Workshops

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.  

The Feldenkrais Method(R) uses functional patterns and a systems approach to improve movement. Developed by a martial artist and engineer, the Method is recommended by doctors, therapists, athletes and performers for its ability to resolve movement challenges and take athletic and performance activities to the next level.

 

Feldenkrais 1  Neck and Shoulders
Get rid of that pain in your neck and tension in your shoulders! In this workshop your whole body will be engaged in fun, functional movement patterns that will relax your shoulders and free your neck. You will leave the class feeling refreshed and revitalized! Sunday, November 9, 1:00-3:00 p.m. $18 Members, $24 Community Members.

Feldenkrais 2 Get Your Back back
Over-working either the front or the back of the body causes pain and weakness. Movement patterns presented in this workshop will help balance the musculature of your abs/chest with that of your back. Your back (spine) is the engine that drives all movement. Give yourself a tune-up and feel taller, more powerful and more efficient, regardless of whether you walk, run, bike, swim or lift. Sunday, November 23, 1:00-3:00 p.m. $18 Members, $24 Community members.

Feldenkrais 3 Pain-free, Strain-free Knees
This workshop offers more help (and health) for your knees. Reduce the pain and strain in your knees and make your next walk, run, swim, bike or workout more comfortable and more fun. Improve the function of your knees using a systems approach that includes the role of your hips, ankles and spine in the healthy function of your knees. Sunday, December 7, 1:00-3:00 p.m. $18 Members, $24 Community Members.
