WHO? Benefits from Awareness Through Movement Classes?
Anyone-- young or old, physically challenged or physically fit—those experiencing acute or chronic pain of the back, neck, shoulder, hip, legs or knee, as well as healthy individuals who wish to enhance their self image, creativity, and ability to perform an art or sport. Many advanced in age students enjoy using the class to retain or regain their ability to move with ease, reducing strain and discomfort. No experience is necessary for the class and it is for all levels of movement ability. The Awareness through Movement classes are a form of somatic education that uses gentle movement and directed attention to improve movement and enhance human functioning.
Through this method, you can increase your ease and range of motion, improve flexibility and coordination, and re-discover your innate capacity for graceful, efficient movement.
In Awareness Through Movement, these precisely structured movement explorations involve thinking, sensing, moving and imagining. Awareness through Movement is so startling effective, after one session, my back and shoulders were in a place of less pain. With my continued Awareness Through Movement sessions, I noticed my shoulders looked level, I was standing more erect, relaxed and owning my posture. I can’t wait to see what else this powerful gentle program has in store for me. Diane F., MCQ, LMT.
