Awareness Through Movement is one way of experiencing the Feldenkrais Method in action. This Method is a functional, holistic approach to finding ease in movements - from daily to athletic. It is about curiosity, intelligent use of our whole selves, and expanding our choices for how we move through the world - all important tools for performers, and for life!
The Method was developed by Moshé Feldenkrais, who drew on his training as a physicist, engineer, and Judo master in developing this approach to healthier function, movement, and self-awareness. It has been practiced by yogis, athletes, musicians, dancers, actors, physical therapists, and people from many other backgrounds. People who also find the method beneficial include those who stand or sit for much of each day, have ongoing physical challenges, or simply want to enhance their lives in the ways listed above.
Michelle Milne is a director, performer, writer, and Feldenkrais practitioner who trained in NYC, San Diego, and Berkeley, and has been teaching Awareness Through Movement (Feldenkrais) lessons and workshops since 2011. Feel free to contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.

** Dress in non-restrictive, comfortable clothing (no thick seams, belts, etc). Bring layers of clothing (and socks), as many people fluctuate in temperature during these lessons.
