Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement Classes
Awareness Through Movement lessons are precisely structured movement explorations that involve thinking, sensing, moving, resting and imagining. Some lessons are based on developmental movements and ordinary functional activities such as reaching, turning, bending, while others are based on more abstract explorations of joint, muscle, and postural relationships. The lessons consist of comfortable, easy movements that gradually evolve into movements of greater range and complexity. There are hundreds of Awareness Through Movement lessons developed by Dr. Feldenkrais. Some are simple in structure and physical demand which are suitable for anyone, including people with some movement restrictions, while at the other end of of the spectrum there are difficult and challenging lessons which would usually be taught only to classes of dancers, athletes and other people with already highly developed movement skills.
None of the lessons in this series of classes will present a demanding physical challenge, but be prepared to have your awareness stretched!
The lessons are pleasurable and interesting to do, and can benefit anyone, as each person works at their own level of ability.
Bring a mat or blanket to lie on, wear loose comfortable clothing, and have an extra layer available in case you cool down during the lesson.
Please contact me on 01792 473415 or 07938929544 to book a place or before you come to a class for the first time.
Please arrive at least 5 minutes before the class start time. Late arrivals not only disturb others but miss the most important points of the lesson!
