Gentle Breath (I)

In this 3-class series of 30-minute lessons you will learn how you breathe -- from the inside out. In the Feldenkrais® approach, we do not prescribe "proper" ways of doing things. Instead, we allow an organic learning to arise that can undo ineffective corrective ways, allowing more ease and natural breath.
You will be able to do the class sitting in a chair, lying on your bed, or lying on the floor -- any position that you find relaxing.
For those who experience tension or anxiety, you will find a great easing of stress.
Those with neck and jaw challenges will relish the time to be present -- and will find hints on how to extend the pain-free periods.
Some people will find this to be the beginning of a series of explorations of whole-body movements, always using the ideas in these lessons as a way to learn new ways of ease.

Gentle Breath (I) is a beginning.
It will be held on three successive Mondays at 9:30 am from Sept 20 to Oct 4.

The Opposite of Anxiety

Below is a cloud of words. 

Take a word from this cloud of words and hold it, hold it in your mind, your thoughts, your presence.

Repeat the word, allowing associations to arise,

...but do not attach yourself to any association

 

Sometimes our "hurt" side will try to push in worries, arguments, negative thoughts. Be fierce: BANISH THEM.

do not dwell; return to your chosen word.

 

Then let it all dissipate as the morning mist rises.

Feel the moment.

 

 

 

 

 

Enjoy, every day.

Feeling down, isolated, anxious? Or just a little flat, or low energy?

Or, feeling a need to connect with your self?

These times with all the uncertainty from the COVID pandemic leads to a depth of uncertainty that is new for many of us, leading to feelings of anxiety, uncertainty, and so on.

Classes in the Feldenkrais Method help ease these feelings so that you feel more energy, physically and mentally to handle life's events.


Whether you have cranky hips, stiff low back, grumbling shoulders, complaining jaws, touchy toes, you will find something in each class that eases your discomfort and gives you a sense of optimism.

In this class you will discover new ways for the possibilities of movement to begin to flow from your center, along your limbs, to your hands and feet. Experience the possibility of moving with comfort and ease.
There is also the option of receiving the recording from the class for an additional small fee.
Again, pre-register at left.

What to Wear. whatever you like!

Ensure you have layers of clothes -- during the class your temperature may drop a bit, and you can feel cooler.

Have something to lie on. Not so comfortable that you will fall asleep - avoid your bed.

Have Pillows or Towels handy. It is often helpful to have supports under the neck, arms or legs, according to your needs -- so you are not distracted by pain or discomfort.
