Spring 2016 Awareness Through Movement Workshop
"But first let's ask: what is a small difference, and how can you tell?" ~Moshe Feldenkrais
All About Arms
With Arlyn Zones
Sunday, May 15, 2016
10 a.m. to 4 p.m.Cost: $85 preregistered; $95 at the door
The use of the arms is both simple and complex. The simplicity comes from clarifying the connection of the arms to a spine and ribs which are mobile, supportive and adaptable. The complexity comes from the need to integrate the clear use of the fingers and wrists into the action of the arms. In this one workshop we will explore, improve and clarify these many interesting interconnections.
ARLYN ZONES began studying the Feldenkrais Method in 1977 and graduated from Dr. Feldenkrais' last U.S. training Program in 1983. She has maintained an active private practice since then, working with infants, children and adults. She has also taught in schools, clinics, hospitals, and has led special seminars for physical and occupational therapists on clinical applications of the Feldenkrais Method for orthopedic and neurological difficulties. Arlyn became an assistant trainer of the Feldenkrais Method in 1988 and a trainer in 1994. She has taught extensively in the U.S., Europe, and Australia in more than 30 training programs. In addition, she teaches advanced seminars for Feldenkrais practitioners. Arlyn is known for her direct and personal teaching style, as well as her ability to inspire creativity and independence in those she teaches. Having participated internationally in the development of training curriculums, she uses innovative approaches to learning while seeking to preserve and communicate the classical aspects of the Feldenkrais Method. She lives in San Francisco where she maintains a private practice in which she works with infants, children and adults who are seeking help for a wide range of physical and neurological difficulties. Her private practice also includes work with dancers, singers and musicians.
