Awareness Through Movement Classes

In order to create lasting change in any part of our lives we must first become of aware of what we are doing.  But all too often we get busy and forget to tune it.  

As children, it was through movement that we explored our world.  We spent the first three years developing and refining how we interact with our environment.  By the time we were standing and walking we were expert navigators moving with  simplicity and grace.  However, as we aged we were often influenced by those around us taking on habits and attitudes that may have been useful at the time but are now interfering in our everyday lives.

Learning to slow down and listen to our bodies is what makes Awareness Through Movement lessons so powerful for creating the necessary change toward stronger and healthier bodies.  The lessons that you learn are applicable to every aspect of your life from standing at the kitchen sink, washing dishes to participating in a Pilates class.  

When you let go of old worn out patterns of thought and movement you are also clearing a path towards enhanced creativity  and an overall feeling of well-being.  

So if you are ready to move beyond your limitations and discover your latent super powers, I invite you to join us in a class.  All levels are welcome.  Please wear loose fitting clothes and bring whatever supports you feel you may need for your comfort.  I provide some mats.  


Weekly Ongoing ATM Classes

When: Fridays
Time:   10:30 am - 11:30 am
Where: Holistic Therapies Classroom

How do you lift your head?  Do you have pain in your neck when you turn to look over your shoulder?  Can you simply lift your head without engaging some old habit?  Are you aware of your back when you walk?  Or do you only notice your back when you have pain?  In this class we will address these questions by exploring movement the way babies did, with curiosity and no end in sight.                             

The cost for drop-ins is $15/class.  I offer a discount when you purchase a block of 5 , 10 or 15 classes.  5 classes are $60.  10 classes or more $10/class for example: 10 classes are $100.

The fun in doing ATM lessons is that you get to be a kid again. How often do you get to roll on the floor on purpose? After this class, getting out of bed in the morning is as easy as...well...falling out of bed :)!!
