Weekly Feldenkrais or Sounder Sleep class

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!

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.

This class uses the unique process of Feldenkrais® Awareness Through Movement® to address issues of specific concern to musicians. We will cover a wide range of topics, from the anatomy and ergonomics of music-making to the more elusive areas of performance anxiety, stage presence, inspiration, and creativity.

We all know that we carry around unnecessary tension.  It might be less apparent that we almost always approach a challenging task with more effort than necessary.  Have you ever noticed that we often meet any challenge – including mental and emotional challenges – with holding our breath? In today’s world of “24/7” and “giving 200 percent” we need, more than ever, to learn Moshe Feldenkrais’ lessons about the difference between trying our hardest and doing our best. In this class, we will learn to engage with the pervasive habit of meeting challenge with effort. Through the process of Awareness Through…

Join an intimate community of learners — and in this the teacher is very much included — all in different places on their journey of self-discovery. I bring a theme to provide continuity from lesson to lesson, so that each student can come away with a sense of clarity about what they are learning. But inevitably, each student learns something different — something that is relevant to them. Underlying the season’s theme are always the basic themes of Awareness Through Movement: Learning to become present in our bodies and our experience, to become aware of our habits, to struggle less, and to feel safe…
