ATM403 Walking Fundamentals: Pillows & Swings (VIDEO)

60 minute Feldenkrais 'Awareness Through Movement' Lesson

Walking is more than just a means of getting from point A to point B. It’s an expression of your independence and freedom. Pain-free, effortless, efficient walking is your birthright that you can have to your final years. So why does it seem like your feet are heavy, your back is stiff or bowed, your legs are tired, and your head hangs forward?
Perhaps you’ve forgotten the easy interplay of all elements of this most fundamental of daily movement?
If walking has become a chore or a pain, understanding your own personal inefficiencies will help you resolve that difficulty. Simply walking more isn’t going to improve your gait, only conscious walking will put you in charge of your actions. Fine tuning the individual elements in a safe, supported, explorative setting allows you to incorporate the improvements at a rate you can digest. Not by isolating parts or theoretically but by learning to connect and balance the relationship of each part of your body to every other part.
A systematic, wholistic approach is what is needed. Neuro-motor retraining for function optimization using the Feldenkrais Method.

I believe the quality of your movement is the quality of your life.

If you’re struggling with pain, lack of motivation, recovering from an injury or feeling the effects of aging, there is a secret weapon to help you combat them. It doesn’t require specialized equipment, complicated routines or extensive study and it’s right at your fingertips. An innate ability that everyone has but you may have ignored.

I am passionate about improving people’s lives by coaching them to have a greater awareness of their physical sensations and to help nurture functional movement. These are the tools that have transformed many of my clients lives.

For over 20 years I have used the principles from a powerful neuro-motor practice called the Feldenkrais Method to inform my pilates teaching as well as fitness training with groups and individuals. Specializing in clients recovering from injury, neurological issues, performing artists and seniors, I maintain a private clinical practice working one-on-one with clients and also present workshops across the country and overseas.
