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.
Wednesday 5:15-6:15 p.m. Drop-in or use your class card
The Awareness Through Movement class theme for June is: Help Your Mid Back
Our mid back tends to be ignored and forgotten about unless it hurts. It has less motion than other parts of the spine, so is prone to becoming stiff and irritated.Explore fun ways to wake up the above area and increase your awareness of its abilities. The neck and low back appreciate the increased flexibility, as it reduces the stress on them.
Summer Break! Ingrid will not be teaching any ATM classes in July and August. Classes will resume on September 3rd. See you in the fall!
Help Your Mid Back
Our mid backs usually appreciate traction. Find a tree limb, doorway or overhead bar to hold onto and sink your knees a little to give the mid back vertebra more space.Alternatively put a folded towel on a chair back and lift up a little to hook your mid back on the towel and sink down. This can be very helpful when driving or as a passenger.
