Today’s program was a special blessing for its benefit at the time and for the exercises to take home in addition to the reference material. I’d mentioned the great signage and the delicious gluten free snack bars and the wonderful acoustics in the Parish Hall. Your gentle manner and seemingly casual encouragement are most refreshing in a world that shouts directives. Feldenkrais is always of benefit to me (immediate and ongoing) and your teaching style and gracious manner make it especially easy to receive.

Release Your Jaw: The Core Connection: Sat. Mar 23, 3 - 5:30 pm

Dysfunctional alignment of the head and pelvis in walking, standing and sitting can strain the jaw unnecessarily, while chronic jaw tension makes free movement of the spine and pelvis impossible. Moreover, the stress response of clenching the jaw and tightening core muscles can become chronic. In this Feldenkrais® workshop, we will use tiny, gentle movement and visualization to experience freedom from head to toe. (Please note that if you are not able to lie comfortably on a mat, private sessions will be more appropriate for you.) Refreshments will be provided. Tuition $45. All Saints’ Episcopal at 106 W. Church St. in Frederick, MD. (ASE parishioners should contact me directly to register.)

Healthy Feet: Sat. Apr 27, 10 am - 12:30 pm

April is National Foot Health Awareness Month!  Walking exclusively on flat surfaces, wearing shoes and engaging in dysfunctional movement patterns weakens and stiffens our toes, feet and ankles. This in turn sets us up for more dysfunctional movement, injuries and loss of balance.  In this Feldenkrais Method® workshop we will improve the proprioceptive and kinesthetic senses of our feet and ankles for improved balance and walking.  (Please note that if you are not able to lie comfortably on a mat, private sessions will be more appropriate for you.) Refreshments will be provided. Tuition $45. All Saints’ Episcopal at 106 W. Church St. in Frederick, MD. (ASE parishioners should contact me directly to register.)

Walking and running are great ways to exercise, but if your gait is off every step has the potential to wear out your joints.  Experience how the Feldenkrais Method® improves the movements of your lower body by helping you coordinate your eyes, head and torso so you can walk/run freely and comfortably for years to come. (Please note that if you are not able to lie comfortably on a mat, private sessions will be more appropriate for you.) Refreshments will be provided. Tuition $45. All Saints’ Episcopal at 106 W. Church St. in Frederick, MD. (ASE parishioners should contact me directly to register.)

Without the awareness of how the mind moves towards excitation and relaxation, we lack the capacity to freely choose between them or to even know that we are stuck.  Our health, relationships and work suffer from fatigue, burnout and irritability. In this meditative workshop we will experience deep calming techniques that are unique to the Feldenkrais Method. (Please note that if you are not able to lie comfortably on a mat, private sessions will be more appropriate for you.) Refreshments will be provided. Tuition $45. All Saints’ Episcopal at 106 W. Church St. in Frederick, MD. (ASE parishioners should contact me directly to register.)
