Description

Lift your heart, open to grace. An ancient phrase, found inscribed on a stone structure in India, and still great words for us today. February is the month where we focus on the heart—love, heartache, Cupid, sweethearts, heart health, etc. What might happen if you could physically expand the space around your heart, breathe more easily, open up to more possibilities?

Join Gika Rector for this three week series of Awareness Through Movement® lessons and reach into the New Year with strength and grace—literally and metaphorically. Beginning with gentle, guided movements you’ll find more strength and power in your arms and hands than you might have thought possible.

It seems counterintuitive in our hard-working culture that the easy way might be better, but in this case it really works. As a black belt in Judo, an athlete and a scientist, Moshe Feldenkrais (founder of the Feldenkrais Method®) understood how to develop strength, efficiency and elegance in human movement.

Awareness Through Movement® lessons help you slow down and notice how your body gets things done. Bringing mindfulness to your movements, you will build strength, greater range of motion, and better balance. As Feldenkrais said, you will “Make the impossible possible, the possible easy, and the easy graceful.”

Classes are suitable for almost all fitness levels. Willingness to lie on the floor, and an interest in moving more easily are really about all you need.

Fee

– Three session series: $45 early bird pay online by
February 4, $55 after.

– Single sessions: $20 online or at the door.

– You are encouraged to commit to all 3 sessions to
receive the biggest benefit.
