There are so many ways we are told how to move correctly. But too often these ideas are just imposed on us and we rarely find comfortable ways of utilizing them. What if you learned one simple idea that could help you move better and better and better -- in all of the things you do! That is exactly what we will explore in this workshop! Utilizing Feldenkrais® Awareness Through Movement® Lessons you will learn how you can make everything you do -- reaching, bending, sitting to standing and more --easier, more efficient and more comfortable.
