The lessons offered in the All Levels program are designed to keep you moving. They are perfect for the beginner and experienced student. So look inside, and find what moves you.
As you continue to move and grow, you'll discover (if you haven't already) that this work can go beyond solving physical problems to improving all that you do. One of the greatest gifts of this work is that it can help you to be more attuned to yourself. For many, this deepens their passions and curiosities and inspires them to explore what moves them. For others, it simply brings a greater sense of ease and contentment to everyday activities.
Most of us develop habitual ways of sitting, walking, and moving in childhood that we carry into adulthood. Everyday activities — like opening and closing doors, carrying groceries, and getting in and out of cars — are repeated frequently throughout the day. So frequently that we are often unaware of how we use our bodies or how much energy we expend in performing these actions.
Over time, these habitual ways of doing things can put unnecessary stress on the body, leading to tension, pain and, even injury. But have no fear, these movements can be improved! And no matter where you are in your life, whether you are dealing with pain or wanting to get that extra edge on your performance, Feldenkrais lessons can help.
As always, the lessons are not recipes for "correct" movement, they do not tell you how to breathe or walk, sit or stand. They teach you how to become your own best expert on what's appropriate and efficient for you, and to deepen your awareness. Over time, you'll develop your ability to consciously perceive how you move and how to quickly let go of excess effort & unnecessary tension. These skills and knowledge will allow you to develop new and effortless movements.
I guarantee that if you continue to explore your Movement & Mindfulness practices, you will tap into a sense of ease and power that goes far beyond what you have ever imagined!
This portion of the membership offers a growing of library Awareness Through Movement® lessons.
Within the library, you'll find a variety of chapters. Each chapter contains four or more Awareness Through Movement lessons around a specific theme. The lessons within the chapter build on one another so that you can safely deepen your experience over time.
All of the Awareness Through Movement® lessons are accompanied by three short Attune To Awareness Practices.
These shorter practices are designed to deepen your learning experience and keep you moving throughout the day. The Attune To Awareness Practices are typically 5-15 minutes long.
- One practice for sitting at your desk or standing.
- One practice that you can do in bed.
We LOVE our community! And there are two distinct ways to gain massive benefit from the community.
- Share your experience and see what others have to say about the lessons they've explored and share your own insights.
- Receive email guidance. You can now sign-up to receive email guidance and nudges with each series within the library. This will help you to stay inspired and in action.
All of the classes are held via Zoom — a video-based online platform. For our movement classes, this allows your instructor to customize her/his teaching based on what you do.
Unlimited classes are included in our Plus+ memberships. However, classes and class packages can also be purchased separately.
