with A. Ifátólú Gardner, MD, MPH, PhD

Sundays: September 29, October 20 & 27
4:00 to 5:30 pm
$16 Reserved 24-hours in Advance/$20 at the Door

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!

$65 in advance/$75 at the door

Join holistic chiropractor and sound healer Dr. Suzie Lee for this unique workshop that will add new and powerful tools to your self-care toolbox. You will learn basic concepts of sound healing, and how to use tuning forks and singing bowls to support the health of the physical, emotional, and mental body. Whether you are in need of techniques for overall relaxation and stress relief, or working with a specific illness or injury, you will learn how to use sound to enhance the body’s innate healing ability. This class will consist of brief discussion of sound healing theory, solo practice using tuning forks to clear your own blockages, and practice on others, so that you learn how to apply this technique to family and friends. This is a great tool for parents who would like to use sound healing with their children (and pets too!). We will close with a 30-minute sound bath.

Note: The techniques demonstrated in this class utilize Biosonics C&G Body Tuners, a specific set of tuning forks that will be available for sale the day of the workshop for $55 per set. Please contact Dr. Suzie at to pre-order your set of tuning forks for a $5 discount.
