Awareness through Movement (ATM)
Give your body a treat by joining an ATM class
Awareness Through Movement® Feldenkrais classes (ATM), facilitated by Ingrid Musson, are a learning process, that invite a person to explore how they move and function in the world. The one-hour session consists of verbally directed movement sequences which students are encouraged to explore within their own capacities and comfort range. The last few minutes are spent explaining how the movements can be incorporated into daily life and students may give feedback of their experience if they wish. Each lesson is complete in itself so you can join in at any time—see below for the monthly theme.
Wednesdays 5:15-6:15 p.m.
In May the theme will be: Help your Neck and Upper Back
Do you suffer from frequent headaches or soreness in your upper back. If so, you are not alone. We tend to over use certain neck/upper back muscles, often resulting in poor neck alignment, followed by the above issues.
The May lessons will help you free up tight muscles and improve spinal mobility, thereby enhancing circulation, which can improve joint and muscle health.
The lessons are at Madrona Mind Body Institute, Fort Worden in the down stairs gym (Ball Room), every Wednesday 5.15 pm - 6.15 pm.

Relax Your Neck.
Tuck your chin in a little. Place your left index and middle fingers on your muscles just to the left of your neck bones. Strum across the muscles many times, going up and down your neck. Repeat on the right side.
The strumming helps reset the muscles to be longer.
Feldenkrais work is a way of life.
The more you do, the better understanding you'll have,
of how you function in life, which is very empowering.
