ATM @ Motion Center Yoga

Workshops at Motion Center Yoga in Pawtucket, Rhode Island are underway and off to a great start. The 6-hour programs consist of four 1.5 hour sessions, which meet weekly on Saturday mornings from 10:30 am to 12:00 pm. Each month focuses on a new theme and follows a progression from week to week, allowing us to delve deeper as we progress through the month.

The program is open to students ages 16 and up and offers a quiet and relaxing respite with which to close the week. Although you will get the greater benefit from registering for the full series, weekly drop-ins will be allowed on a space available basis. (Click the photo to learn more.)

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

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....
