Awareness through movement
The Movement Algorithm - Preston - Wednesdays - 6.30pm - 7.30pm
This class is capped at 8 people so booking is advised:
The Movement Algorithm: move well, feel well, be well.
Through gentle movement sequences in lying, learn how to build kinaesthetic literacy. Rediscover the raw power and grace you were designed to enjoy.
You inhabit one of the most sophisticated machines the planet has ever seen. Shaped over millennia, you stand at an evolutionary peak climbed by warriors, wanderers and wonderers who have walked the earth before you.
And yet however brilliant the machine, the realisation of its potential is dependent on the intelligence of the driver – the inhabitant nervous system. Function is a learnt process and how deep we choose to go is the choice of each individual.
So how far have you come?
Do you wish for better form, a stronger arm, a smoother swing? Do you wonder about a recurring strain, persistent pain, weak link in the chain?
Are you ready to improve your self use? To sequence movements with awareness of timing, orientation and manipulation? To know what you are doing, to the subtlest detail so you can do what you want? So you can truely move with ease, grace and all of your evolutionary potential?
It’s time to discover the Feldenkrais Method of Awareness Through Movement.
This tailored 8 week series of lessons will take you on a tour de force of your movement habits and open up a new realm of possibilities.

What to bring:
Both of the studios I teach out of supply yoga mats and these are suitable for use in Awareness Through Movement. If you would prefer your own mat, or a mat with more padding than a yoga mat you may bring your own. Most Awareness Through Movement lessons involve lying on a mat and moving in various positions, so comfortable clothes are recommended.
