FELDENKRAIS

with A. Ifátólú Gardner, MD, MPH, PhD

Sundays: February 9, March 8
4:00 to 5:30 pm
$18 Reserved 24-hours in Advance/$22 at the Door (Studio passes not accepted for this class)

In each Feldenkrais® class Ifátólú guides you verbally through specific slow, gentle and integrated movement patterns – Awareness Through Movement® lessons. Each lesson invites you to “go in and in” deeper within yourself, exploring novel ways to move with greater ease, supported by the seamless union (“yoga”) of the breath & the bones. The Feldenkrais® method is a powerful practice of neuromuscular re-patterning; opening the way for you to experience greater physical ease, flexibility and strength; deeper, more expansive drishti (internal kinesthetic awareness) & equanimity; and a wider range of possibilities when engaging in any learning activity.

In the Feldenkrais® method, soft, gentle movements become a practice of healing and joyous self-discovery – come experience it for yourself!

Margaret’s training and experience includes Thai yoga therapy, Reiki, Lomi Lomi (traditional Native Hawaiian healing modality), traditional Native American traditional healing practices (Navajo and Pomo), guided meditation, nutrition, physical therapy, and trauma-informed yoga.
