A free workshop in the Richard Ehrman Memorial Feldenkais® Series at Berklee
Teacher: Hellen Miller, GCFP
What we see in our mind’s eye while making music can help to illuminate how we move as we play, so we will draw from imagination as well as from life in this Feldenkrais and drawing session.

If you’ve ever been to a Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement class, you’ve probably experienced the wonderful, and at times profound, changes that can take place through this method in your body and in your sense of self.

Now imagine what could happen over the course of four whole days, as you go deeper and deeper into your senses, and flesh out the map of your self-image.

And now imagine that you are spending those four days exploring and improving your breath!

In the summers I like to offer what I call “Open Phones” in my weekly classes. Like a talk-show, when there’s no set theme, and the callers – that’s you! – get to set the agenda.

So what do you want to learn? What do you want to improve in your movement? Just drop in and let me know!

This class will give you space to explore what kind of change you feel you need in you life this year and, through a combination of Jewish text study, ritual, and Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement lessons (with a bit of influence from Taoist and Zen teachings) create the conditions necessary for these changes to begin taking place.

The key to improving your sitting posture lies not in the position in which you sit, but in the way you move while you sit. This series of Awareness Through Movement lessons will teach you how.

We’ll learn to relax our shoulders and reach easily with our arms, and we’ll also learn a few movements inspired by Sounder Sleep® Day-Tamers® that specifically work to counter the stress most of us experience during our sitting times. Some of the lessons will be in sitting, and some will be mostly on the floor, sitting only at the beginning and end as reference points. We’ll even do some lessons with a table, which you can use with your desk at work.
