The Feldenkrais Method is changing the image in the motor cortex; and our brain, feeling the freedom of the new learning, rushes to meet it.
Arno Gruen, M.D., Psychiatrist

In this workshop, we’ll explore Feldenkrais movements that will induce new flexibility in your ribs and spine, improving your ability to twist. Once you learn how to eliminate unnecessary restrictions in your rib cage and thoracic spine, you’ll find greater freedom in seated, supine and standing twists. We’ll also use a skeleton to help image the movements more clearly. By learning to listen to yourself as you move through these special Awareness Through Movement lessons tied to yoga poses, you’ll discover your blind spots and find new ways of moving that are easy, pleasurable and safe. Please join Yoga and Feldenkrais teacher Suzanne Ausnit for a special 3-hour workshop to experience Feldenkrais lessons that relate directly to yoga poses. No knowledge of yoga is needed for this workshop.

Feldenkrais starts your whole life moving in new directions, with new choices on every level of your life. You must experience it. Feldenkrais has had a tremendous impact on my life. It has taught me to really listen to myself. I now know I need not stay stuck in pain. It has helped me see that I have choices, that my patterns of movement, my patterns of emotional "sludge" can change.
