Feldenkrais® Awareness Through Movement Class: 

FRIDAYS (EL CERRITO): 1:30-2:30 pm, 1/9-2/20 (no class 1/23),Six Classes, $70 series, $14 Drop-in. Mixed-levels/Mats Provided

Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® uses gentle movement explorations to re-pattern the way your brain perceives and coordinates movement. It can help you discover new ways to become more flexible, balance better, walk easier, and reduce chronic pain. Feldenkrais® is not only about learning to move better, yet also can reduce stress and produce a feeling of calm, clarity, and self harmony. The Feldenkrais Method was developed by the renowned movement educator, Judo master, author and physicist, Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais. His work has been used worldwide for over 50-years to improve recovery from physical and neurological injuries, increase learning ability, and enhance athletic performance.

Feldenkrais’ mastery of Judo gave him a deep understanding of how to move powerfully and gracefully, while maintaining balance and presence. He also studied the developmental patterns of children, how they learn about lifting the head, rolling over to sitting, crawling, coming to standing, and walking. How we learn, how we can change, and how we can develop our potential, is the essence of his work. With support from the practitioner, students often discover ways to improve they had never considered before. Feldenkrais® is stimulating and fun to do, and is not only for those with pain or injury.
