Events at The Arlington Center

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.

Whether you sit to meditate, to work at a desk, or, as I do, to play a musical instrument, the quality of what you are doing is deeply affected by how well you sit. In this Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® workshop you will begin to discover a balanced and dynamic approach to sitting posture and learn some tools to practice and improve at home.

Balanced, Grounded, Centered…. We use these physical ideas to describe our emotional states, but is there a real relationship between the physical and the emotional? When you are emotionally balanced, will it be easier for you to walk a real tight-rope? When you feel the center of your body, are you more emotionally centered? (And where is the center of your body anyway? Experts may disagree!). We will not be walking any literal tightropes in this workshop, but we will refine the feeling of our center as we move, and explore the effects on our state of mind as well…
