February 20: "The Art of Siting," with Liz Sisco

Our bodies evolved to move, and yet the demands of the modern workplace and our car culture require excessive amounts of sitting. Even the most ergonomically advanced chair will not prevent stress and strain while sitting. With the Feldenkrais Method, you can learn the optimal and most efficient way of using your body as you sit. In this workshop, you will do a variety of experiential lessons to increase your body awareness while you sit and to learn active, dynamic ways of using yourself while you sit. You will immediately be able to involve these lessons in your daily routine. Come discover how to make sitting a comfortable, healthy activity.


March 27: "Posture and Balance," with Donna Wood

Posture relates to all aspects of human functioning. In this workshop we will explore how refining and improving posture and balance brings ease and efficiency to daily tasks, including enhanced athletic performance. Good balance is also an essential part of avoiding injuries and aging well and gracefully.


April 24: "Moving in Gravity: Down to the Floor and Up Again With Ease!" with Bonnie Humiston

We live in gravity. Our bodies and nervous systems are designed to work with gravity and will do so as we practice focusing our attention in our physical experience of gravity while moving, coordinated with breathing. In this workshop we will experience moving to sitting and to standing, from lying on the floor, with much greater ease. We will notice how to reverse that action, moving back again with the same ease. The experience of using gravity is a powerful lesson to employ in your life.


May 15: "Resiliency: The Ribs, Breath and Power," with Donna Wood

The ribs are involved in a central way in every physical activity—from breathing to running to laughing. In
this evening course, we will explore the functioning of the ribs in a variety of situations. We will move in a wide range
from smaller, finer movements to larger and more global movements, finding a soft and supple path to powerful action. This workshop will be particularly useful for those wanting to improve the health and functioning of their backs.


June 5: "Finding Length: From Your Head to Toes," with Falk Feddersen


Injuries and repetitive movements can lead to unnecessary shortening through oneself, which may lead to tightness, aches, and even pain. Many patterns of shortening are learned having become essentially subconscious habits. In this workshop, we will explore ways of finding length from head to toe by utilizing familiar and unfamiliar movement patterns. Through these movements, performed with attention, old habits are weakened and new habits are developed--the net result being that one can experience greater ease and comfort.
