This series explores the transformative and synergistic effects of combining Mindfulness and the Feldenkrais Method to reduce stress and facilitate healthy neurological balance. No prior experience is necessary, but those familiar with either discipline will appreciate the new perspectives that emerge. Each practice potentiates the other in a rich complementary approach.
Each class will begin with a guided mindfulness practice led by psychotherapist Chuck Moshontz, followed by an original Awareness Through Movement® lesson with Feldenkrais® Teacher, David Zemach-Bersin. Unifying themes are woven throughout each class to interact with your brain's neuroplasticity in such a way as to bring you into a deep, calm, restorative state.
You will learn how to develop an optimal balance between relaxation and tension in order to reduce anxiety and stress. You will also learn how to access the subtle nuances of your embodied experience in new, imaginative ways, as you combine mindful awareness with slow and easy movement.
Join us to enrich your Feldenkrais or mindfulness practice, interrupt habitual neurological patterns, reduce stress and anxiety, and access the healing power of your brain. Expect to feel refreshed, empowered, and rejuvenated!
