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.
The theme for March will be:
Posture, Neck and Shoulders
It is not unusual to be told to sit up straight and to pull your shoulders back, but the reality is that it is very hard to maintain. What is more helpful is to find a position where your head is effortlessly balanced over your spine, with your shoulders relaxed. This, along with neck/shoulder connections, will be explored for the month of March.
Drop-in or use your class card
Place your hands on top of your head and gently push down. Notice where your body collapses. Then push your head into your hands, lengthening fully throughout your spine. Remove your hands from your head and notice how your neck feels.
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.
