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 Movement® you will discover both deep relaxation and the ability to meet difficulty with productive curiosity instead of counterproductive strain. Learn how to let go of unnecessary tension, soften your breath, and then engage your muscles powerfully with less effort (and without disturbing your breath)!
What would you like to do with less effort?
There are a few musicians enrolled already enrolled in the class, and we will all get to hear how their music-making is changed by the work we do together. Let me know if there is something you do that you would like to explore in the context of the class, and I’ll find a way to work it in!
