In Feldenkrais® Awareness Through Movement® lessons you learn how to move with minimum effort and maximum ease, through improved coordination and awareness of how your body works. Lying on the floor you are directed through a series of gentle, non-invasive movements that grow increasingly complex. This puzzle-like situation prompts your nervous system to activate a different muscle pattern than you usually use. As a result, at the end of a lesson, habitual muscle tension releases. You sense the stability of a balanced skeleton. Your breathing is freer, walking lighter, and eyes clearer. Your kinesthetic perception enhanced, you can move in ways that you thought were restricted.
If you continue to return to the Feldenkrais Method as a means to easier movement and less pain, Awareness Through Movement lessons are vitally important to your learning process. When you have the opportunity to pay attention to your own movement within the structure of these lessons, you can begin to make choices in your every day life that will lead to fuller participation in the things you love.
Weekly ATM classes are on break for the summer. Please join us for the three summer workshops listed below. Looking forward to seeing you!

Sunday Morning Workshop Series at the Zen Den
Ocean, NJ 07712
June 14, July 19 and August 16.
Workshop #1: Your Comfortable Neck
June 14, 9 – 11:30 am $50
You CAN be more comfortable – without working harder and struggling. Sometimes a different approach can open avenues for improvement that you did not know were available to you. Join us for a morning workshop that will include discussion and Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement lessons. Utilizing the tremendous capacity of your brain to coordinate efficient movement, these lessons help you rediscover that movement can be easy, and, most importantly . . pain free.
Workshop #2: What Happened to my Hip Joints?!
July 19, 9-11:30am $50
Why does it seem like there are so many conditions that create pain in our hip joints, when this joint was clearly designed to move?! One look at a hip joint (ball and socket) tells you that it was meant for movement- lots of movement. Join us for a morning Feldenkrais workshop to explore why our hip joints become painful, then learn to reintroduce healthy movement. You can discover that hip discomfort does not have to be a permanent condition.
Feldenkrais lessons help you re-teach your nervous system to organize your movement. For this reason, they are low stress and “non invasive” – the optimal conditions for creating change. Some lessons in this workshop will be done lying on the floor and some in a standing position.If you have a condition that prevents you getting down to and up from the floor, it will benefit you most to have a few individual Feldenkrais sessions before joining a group class.
