Free individual lessons
There will be an ongoing schedule of free individual lessons called Functional Integration (FI) lessons for the public to experience throughout the day. In these lessons you will lie or sit, comfortably clothed, on a low padded table. Your practitioner will physically guide your body through safe, effortless movement, and will use precise touch to bring unfamiliar parts of your body into awareness.
Free group classes
There will be an ongoing schedule of free short group classes called Awareness Through Movement (ATM) classes for the public to experience throughout the entire day. In these classes a practitioner will guide you through a planned sequence of movement explorations. You will be encouraged to pay close attention to the sensations of each movement. You will also be encouraged to practise the movements very gently and slowly, ensuring that you feel safe and comfortable throughout.
Throughout the day there will also be expert practitioners at an information table to answer any questions about the Feldenkrais Method and to explain the different specialist applications of the Method in areas such as physiotherapy, personal training and fitness, excellence in sport and performing arts, working with children with special needs, maintaining easy movement as you age and the training and qualification processes of the Method itself.
Please note that all individual and group classes are offered on a ‘first come, first serve” basis.
