Introduction to Feldenkrais Two with Lisa Shufro

  • Second Introduction to Feldenkrais system of movement. Complementary to Yoga and embraced by musicians, athletes and individuals with movement challenges.
  • 2010-05-02T12:00
  • Two hours

Lisa’s first small-group workshop at Dew Yoga was “sold out.” Students like Karen Mitchell said, “Lisa is a gifted teacher. After doing just a few simple techniques, I was delighted with how much better I felt and moved.”

Now Lisa is back with a second fun session introducing the Feldenkrais Method (FM) for moving with ease. This workshop is perfect for newcomers or for those who participated in the first session.
Feldenkrais is the art and science of “feeling better through moving better.” FM is not yoga or Pilates, but it works great with both.
Here’s what happens in class:
Simple, easy movements are done sitting, lying or standing
No strain, no stretching. No “wrong way” to do it
Paying attention to fine details so your body effortlessly “learns” to move more naturally and with greater ease
Very relaxing,yet subtly invigorating
You feel more aware and alive!

In this new session, Lisa – a certified instructor in the Method — will expand on the lessons of the first class and introduce new lessons and techniques.

$25/person, minimum 8 students. Please register in advance.
