Introductory classes for Feldenkrais; Awareness Through Movement (ATM)
Designed for newcomers to Feldenkrais, each class will include a short introduction to the method, and beginner-friendly lessons. You’ll be introduced to the hows and whys of taking a Feldenkrais lesson. You’ll see how quickly you can improve when you use your awareness to notice HOW you move, rather than “how much, how fast, how hard, how far?”

From 9/11 - 9/20, the introductory class price is $15/class. 
From September 25th-December 18, drop-in classes will only be available to students with some experience with ATM even just one class. So if you are thinking about finding out about Feldenkrais, what it is and how it works for you, this it the time to try it out.

After the initial 2 week Intro class period, only people with some Feldenkrais experience - even just one Introductory class - can attend the ongoing classes on a drop-in basis ($20). Newcomers are, however, always welcome to purchase a ten-class card ($120, valid for 12 weeks)"
For experienced Feldies – Sumati will be teaching lessons she has never taught at Motion Center, so you can enjoy easing gently back into class after the break with brand new material.

 Class Times:   Tuesday 6:30-7:45 and Thursday 10:00-11:15am
 Single Class:   ** 9/11 – 9/20   **$15       From 9/25  $20

The Magic Roller: For a Pain Free and Flexible Spine

The Magic Roller: For a Pain Free and Flexible Spine

The Magic Roller: For a Pain Free and Flexible Spine, 
A Feldenkrais Workshop with Sumati Eberstadt
Sunday,March 4, 2-5:30pm, cost $35, Pre registration required

Doing Feldenkrais is usually a pretty low-tech endeavor. Still, now and then we use rollers - in this workshop, soft rollers - to move, soothe and invigorate your spine and pelvis.

“The Magic Roller” is a series of Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement (ATM) lessons that use a simple rolled up blanket or towel to provide support, stimulation, new sensations and unfamiliar feedback to your system. These ATMs are incredibly relaxing. The uneven surfaces help loosen up all those small joints along the spine and ribs. They amplify the effect of the movements you make. The roller is placed along your length, in the middle or a little off-center, or across your body in various places. It is firm enough to provide clear support and a bit of instability, but soft enough to be comfortable and welcoming. We roll, rock, slide, oscillate and twist with the roller. Fun and restful, challenging and unusual.

We will focus on freedom of the pelvis, spine, and ribcage. You will learn to let go where you are tight, move where you are stiff, and breath in unfamiliar places. You’ll have a simple, low-tech tool to use when your back aches, or when that place between your shoulder blades, seizes up. The Magic Roller is a way to keep your back pain free and flexible, or simply to relax your whole self when rest is what you need. Restorative, effective and do-able!For information and to register, contact Sumati at
