Pain Free Movement Class -Feldenkrais Method 2018 Pain Free Movement Class / Feldenkrais Method 2018 Class Dates: Registration Coming Soon June 25th 5:30-7pm July 23rd 5:30-7pm August 27th 5:30-7pm The Feldenkrais Method provides a way to tap into the brain’s innate ability to change neural pathways in order to make movements, and in fact life, more comfortable and efficient. This workshop will give you the ability to sense subtle changes in your own organization via verbally directed awareness cues. In these progressive movement lessons, Valerie will use a combination of enjoyable micro movements and guided attention in successive approximations toward a final goal. The process will teach you to reduce unnecessary muscular effort improving the organization of your whole system. Focusing on sensory learning culminates in movements that are more flexible, and free from pain. The lessons are simple and accessible to everyone from the most accomplished athlete to those suffering from severe physical and mental handicaps. The results can be extraordinary! Join us and replace old habits with new awareness that will enhance your physical experience. Valerie C.
