About this course:

Walking is nature’s perfect exercise, but we don’t usually think about the way we walk, how our skeleton moves, what muscles we’re using, or whether we are subtly hurting a part of our body. In this course, we learn to walk more easily, comfortably, and even elegantly. Taught by a physical therapist, we use simple movement explorations through the Feldenkrais Method®, which works slowly and systematically to build new and improved patterns of movement. We know from the science of walking, it also boosts creativity, clears the mind, and sharpens our senses. As Dr. Feldenkrais said, “What I’m after isn’t flexible bodies, but flexible brains.” All levels are welcome; however, students must be able to get up and down off the floor.
