Smart Movement Solutions: Finding a Mind Body Balance

GENINT 731.346

Osher (50+). In this course, we learn smarter ways to move painlessly.


About this course:

The Feldenkrais Method® works slowly and systematically to build new patterns of movement. By doing very small and easy but complex movement puzzles, we learn to rewire our nervous systems to align mind with body. In this course, we become experts at knowing how our bodies work—what is possible and easy and what is more difficult or even impossible at the time. We experiment with variations in our movement patterns to build resiliency and expand our repertoire of ways to do the same movements with refinement. The movement strategies we use are small and slow to maximize a way for your brain to learn better habits. This is not a standard exercise class. Anyone can benefit since the emphasis is on learning as we once did as babies—organically. Discover the pleasure of moving painlessly and gracefully. Students must sign a waiver before participation.
