Weekly Feldenkrais Classes
Commune With Others & Find Yourself In Motion.
Feldenkrais® classes are known as Awareness Through Movement® and are based on a very precise study of how the nervous system learns. Many of the classes are grounded in infant development patterns, others are subtle investigations into function: such as how does force translate through to foot to the pelvis, how does this relate to the muscles of the back, or impact breathing?
Every one of the thousands of lessons comes complete with many questions for the nervous system to investigate. The process of paying attention to the movement is actually more important than the movement itself.
♥ Would you like enhanced mental clarity and emotional well-being?
♥ Could you benefit from improved posture?
♥ Are you interested in meditation but can’t sit still?
♥ Do you experience aches & pains that keep you from doing what you want?
♥ Are you a creative soul looking to enhance your performance or creativity?
♥ Or are you just curious?
People often ask about Awareness Through Movement classes. Is it like yoga? Pilates? The short answer is yes and no. Yes, because we are utilizing attention and awareness. No, because how we go about it is nothing like Pilates and Yoga.
In fact, we never go to the point of stretch or strain. Rather, we move more and more towards finding appropriate effort and redefining what is easy.

Conscious Movements now offers two monthly Feldenkrais Workshops at A Space To Grow. Both workshops will explore the same theme. The first workshop, Feldenkrais 101, is introductory in nature. While the second, The Conscious Movements Workshop, takes a more in-depth look at some of the theory behind the practice. Together the two will expand your thinking and deepen your experience.
Although all of these workshops can be taken individually, the first three workshops are designed to support and enhance the Nov/Dec Healthy Posture & Improved Acture Workshop.
This clinic offers Families, Caregivers, Educators and Therapists the opportunity to learn more how the Feldenkrais Method® & Body-Mind Centering® can deepen their understanding of development and offer new ways to respond, nurture and inspire healthy growth in infants and children.
The first half of the day will offer two experiential workshops, group discussions, and a presentation on somatic approaches that engage movement, touch, and intentional environments to encourage the natural maturation processes of the brain and body. The second half of the day will offer private sessions for infants and children with their parents or caregivers. The Feldenkrais Functional Integration® & Body-Mind Centering sessions are designed specifically to help parents learn more about and support their developing child.
