This movement intelligence class will run for 6 consecutive weeks. It offers the opportunity to slow down, acknowledge the body’s innate intelligence, retrieve knowledge about key aspects of the body’s movement patterns and practice the Bones for Life learning tools in small doses. This work has been mostly shared in 4 hour monthly workshops, or private sessions, however, regular group work is very effective in teaching the patterns as a long lasting and transformative practice for life and wellness.
Movement Intelligence and Bones for Life is based based on Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais’ approach to somatic learning has been developed by his student Dr. Ruthy Alon. In these classes you will gain new insights to your own movement practice and work with the Bones For Life sequences to improve and refine your posture and mobility.
