In this four week, four class series we will get curious about our individual habits of over-working and under-working. We will complicate our relationship to relaxation, contemplating it not as an on/off state but as a quality that we can calibrate in any action. Using the Feldenkrais Method’s principles of doing less to feel more, we will deepen our sense of what we might call a good mixture: organizing ourselves toward the things we want to do while being ready to potently engage with what the world sends our way.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT A FELDENKRAIS CLASS
ATM class most often takes place lying down, but occasionally in sitting or standing. I provide verbal proposals and guide learners as they move. There is a strong emphasis on moving slowly, easily, and staying within the range of personal comfort so that you can refine your sense of what you are doing and how you are doing it. ATM is perhaps different from other movement classes in that its goals are not about stretching, strengthening, relaxing, meditating, or imitating. Instead lessons are designed to engage your curiosity in yourself and to refine your innate powers of awareness. I co-teach all classes with Feldenkrais practitioner Krista Langberg.
