(MPR) Feldenkrais® Awareness through Movement® Practice with A. Ifátólú Gardner
Oct 11 @ 1:30 pm – 2:45 pm

 Feldenkrais® Awareness Through Movement® practice.

8 Thursdays

October 11 through December 6

No class on November 22 

In each class Ifátólú verbally guides you through a series of slow, gentle (and integrated)movements of the Feldenkrais® method. Calling upon your body’s capacities of neuroplasticity, each Feldenkrais® lesson helps you (a) more consciously & joyously inhabit your bodily self, (b) experience greater freedom & ease in your everyday movements, and (c) have more options (a wider range of possibilities) when engaging in any learning activity.
Through the Feldenkrais® method, movement becomes a practice of healing and joyous self-discovery — come experience it for yourself! Everyone is welcome!

A. Ifátólú Gardner, MD, MPH, PhD is a healer, scholar, educator and Indigenous spiritual elder (Iyánífá).

Classes are taught with an individual comfort level with either lying, sitting, or standing body movements.
