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.
The Awareness Through Movement classes start again on September 2nd.
Wednesdays 5:15-6:15 p.m.
The theme for October: Help Your Knees, Ankles and Feet.
Knee, ankle and foot alignment are vital for efficient walking and happy joints. Get a better understanding of how they are all connected, improve mobility, strength and balance. Explore fun, unusual ways to move and gently challenge your brain as well.
There will be 4 classes at the usual time of 5.15 - 6.15 pm at Madrona.

Help Your Knees
Sit and straighten your right knee. Move your knee cap up/down, right and left. Notice if it is a little creaky. Then lock your knee and bend your ankle up. Bring your heel off the floor and move your locked leg up and down a little, until you feel your thigh muscles ache slightly. Retest your knee cap. Is it a little less creaky? Repeat on the left.
