We will investigate our habitual patterns of sitting and how we may improve our functional movements and increase our comfort.
These classes are suitable for students with any level of experience of Feldenkrais.
Classes will be limited to 15 places in our live virtual classroom and the series of 6 lessons will be £39.00.
Classes will be recorded if you miss any of the series or just want to repeat them in your own time.
The audio recordings will be available to access on our new Awarenessworks Teachable platform, for up-to 1 month after the series, to all enrolled students.
Tickets available for series here for lunchtime or evening classes.

Hope you can make it along for the new term of classes !
Feldenkrais® group classes are known as Awareness Through Movement lessons. Similar to Tai Chi or gentle yoga, Awareness Through Movement classes use slow, mindful movements to achieve powerful effects in terms of strength, flexibility, and holistic integration of body and mind. Unique to the Feldenkrais Method® is that these lessons tie directly into functional movements of daily life, such as walking efficiently, safely lifting objects, and improving one’s posture in sitting or standing.
You can expect a class to last somewhere between 45 and 60 minutes. The teacher guides students through a sequence of movements, encouraging them to move with gentle attention within a comfortable range. You may become aware of unexpected and interesting connections within and between the movements. As you attend to the improving quality of movement, unnecessary muscular tensions throughout the body can reorganize and release. Students are often amazed at the quick and clear changes that occur through the neuromuscular repatterning that happens in an Awareness Through Movement lesson!
- Move slowly and consciously so you can feel how you do it.
- Make small moves; the less the movement, the better the results will be.
- Repeat every move slowly and with full attention.
- Slowly you will learn to make a lot of new distinctions. Feel how your intention becomes action. Learning is the key to change.
- Don't stretch, force or try to pass your limits. Make the minimum effort while you move, you will really improve more quickly as you reduce your effort.
- "less is more" in this approach.
Learn to move more comfortably, reduce stress and develop a healthy curiosity about the ways in which you both think and move.
These classes are suitable for newcomers and more experienced students.
