Awareness through Movement (ATM)
Give your body a treat by joining an ATM class
Awareness Through Movement® Feldenkrais classes (ATM), facilitated by Ingrid Musson, are a learning process, that invite a person to explore how they move and function in the world. The one-hour session consists of verbally directed movement sequences which students are encouraged to explore within their own capacities and comfort range. The last few minutes are spent explaining how the movements can be incorporated into daily life and students may give feedback of their experience if they wish. Each lesson is complete in itself so you can join in at any time—see below for the monthly theme.
Wednesdays 5:15-6:15 p.m.
The class theme for October will be: Dynamic Posture
Posture tends to evoke images of shoulders being pulled back and bellies sucked in--actions that cannot be sustained for long. Dynamic postures make more sense as the body makes little adjustments all the time ----altogether much kinder and more efficient.
In October you will be exploring ways to be better aligned while standing, sitting and lying down.
Drop-in or use your class card
Stand and notice the position of your chest bone. Then let it sink towards your belly button and feel how your feet will want to collapse, your knees will sink inwards, the back of your neck will shorten and your shoulders will be forwards. . Now lift your chest bone up and notice that all the above go the other way and you will be taller and more comfortable
Feldenkrais work is a way of life.
The more you do, the better understanding you'll have,
of how you function in life, which is very empowering.
