Awareness Through Movement® Classes Term 1

with Jenny D’Cruz

As Julie Andrews sings, “Let’s start at the very beginning, a very good place to start, when you read you begin with A-B-C, when you sing you begin with DO-RE-MI.”

When we move, we begin with exploration, stimulation and curiosity.

We integrate reflexes, develop head control, learn to sense feed-back from the ground, reach, and turn.

Gradually we learn movement patterns that become the ‘do-re-mi’ for more complex movement patterns.

These basic movement patterns for gait, squat, reaching and turning lead to walking, running, throwing, climbing and more…

 
How do you know when you are comfortable? How many different options do you have in the situations you find yourself in?

How do you know when you are comfortable? How many different options do you have in the situations you find yourself in?

In January, we are beginning with lessons that are a good introduction to the Feldenkrais Method.

Following the January classes, in term 1 we are going to explore easier ways to squat, reach, turn and ambulate (at any level from a meander to a run, a slope to a mountain). If you’re wondering how this might apply to you think picnics, outdoor concerts, camping holidays or ‘ready about…. Lee ho!’, playing with children, climbing in and out of small cars, or even up in to 4WDs. When the ground is your friend, and you have many ways to get close to it and across it comfortably, the world may become your oyster again!

Class dates and times:

Monday 9.15am – 10.15am, Feb 4th to Apr 8th, 2019 

Thursday 6.00pm-7.00pm, Feb 7th to Apr 11th, 2019
