Our most comprehensive package of services:
A workshop for something New Yorkers do a lot of…
Our body is designed to walk, and some of us walk a great deal. The average New Yorker takes over 5,000 steps a day and walks 92,000 miles in a lifetime. But walking is not a comfortable or pleasurable activity for everyone. Many people experience pain or feel tense, achy and uncomfortable while walking.
Feldenkrais® Institute co-founder, Marek Wyszynski, has designed an immediately practical workshop to help you improve your comfort, stamina and efficiency while walking. Please join us for an evening learning effective strategies that can enhance this important activity. The Feldenkrais exercises featured in this workshop will help to reduce stiffness in your muscles and joints, so you are able to walk with greater ease. They will also support improvements in your posture, flexibility, balance, sleep, and help you to relieve stress and improve your mood.

Feldenkrais is not just pushing muscles around, but changing things in the brain itself.
