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 January: Spinal Mobility and Hips
Start the new year by giving yourself a treat.
A very important investment in your body, as you age, is to maintain/improve your hip range and spinal flexibility, otherwise reaching your feet can become challenging or impossible.
The focus for the ATM classes in January will be all about exploring novel ways to ensure that those joints remain flexible. I will be teaching the first class and Katherine Wieseman has kindly agreed to teach the next 3 classes (many thanks Katherine).
I hope to see you there.

Increase your Hip Range Excercise
Sit in a chair and cross your (R) leg over your (L), with your (R) knee to the (R) if possible. If it feels restricted grab your (R) thigh muscles and roll them outwards. Does this help your (R) hip open a little further.
Repeat on the (L).
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.
