FELDENKRAIS

with A. Ifátólú Gardner, MD, MPH, PhD

Sundays: November 10, December 15
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!
