Intro to Awareness Through Movement® - Online Classes

Every now and then you come across something that changes you forever. Awareness Through Movement (ATM) fell into that category for me.

A CEC Presentation for the Annual Fall Conference for the Massachusetts Association of Councils on Aging

Workshop Session IV: 4:00pm – 5:15pm
CEC:  1 SW
 

There is ample evidence to show that seniors are aware of and interested in the role that exercise plays in their well-being, and the Feldenkrais Method is very effective for bringing about greater comfort and ease of mobility. However, a recent survey of seniors by the Council on Aging in Dedham, Massachusetts (results available here: http://www.dedham- ma.gov/index.cfm?pid=20464) also points to their need for a sense of connection. Because the Feldenkrais Method potentiates growth, personal transformation, and healing, it can offer seniors a way to connect with themselves, each other, and their respective communities in a variety of meaningful ways....

Kinesthetic Edge for Golfers - SOWA Sundays - July 13, 20, and 27

A lot goes on in your body during the golf swing, far too much to be aware of in the moment. It is possible, however, to examine one small part of it at a time. The Awareness Through Movement lessons that you will be introduced to in Kinesthetic Edge for Golfers will help you to break down the multiple sensations of the golf swing, so that you can more easily sense the underlying patterns of movement that combine to make the whole...

I just wanted to let you know that I tried lesson one. There was something in there that allowed me to relax and swing more freely, and I’m getting another 20 to 30 yards on my drives, which is unbelievable. That alone was worth the price of admission.

This introductory workshop in the Feldenkrais Method will lead you through a process that has helped thousands to move more beautifully, think more clearly, and experience a renewed sense of possibility. Feel stress melt away and aches and pains diminish.

After just two sessions, the neck problems I'd had for years diminished. Now I have the tools and awareness to change my habits and alleviate my neck pain. I am also more connected when I dance and I incorporate this information when teaching dance and Pilates classes. Andrea is one of the most talented and knowledgeable instructors I've ever worked with!
