You're interested in taking live Awareness Through Movement® classes but you don't have a class being offered near you or just can't find time to get to the studio. I've got you covered with the Feldenkrais® Live & Online Membership!
This live membership brings you live classes that are hosted both online and in Troy, NY (coming late 2017). The classes run in a series each quarter with a minimum of six classes being offered throughout the series. But on occasion, you might be invited to join in on a 5-day movement challenge or mini-retreat during the off month. All of the live class series include a companion course — which comes with 12-recorded movement lessons, 6-recorded meditation practices, and much more. So even if you miss a live class, you'll have an opportunity to do it on your time.
And because I want you to be fully supported...
The Feldenkrais® Live & Online Membership also includes everything my Feldenkrais® & Mindfulness On Demand Membership offers. With a complete library of lessons ranging from 10-60 minutes, you can choose a lesson based on your time and your needs. If you keep scrolling down, you'll see the library offerings listed under "Courses Included With Purchase".
Conscious Movements helps you to move through life with ease. All of my lessons, courses, and programs are designed to invoke the curiosity & passion you had for movement as a child and merge it with the wisdom & intelligence you have as an adult.
The truth is that you probably stopped learning and practicing new physical skills sometime in early childhood— you rolled around, you crawled, you walked, you ran, you jumped… then what happened? If you’re like most people, you sat down and started working. Before you knew it your curiosity had started to wane and your discomfort began to soar.
Maybe you're simply interested in Meditation but can't sit still? We've all heard that meditation is good for us, and can help with a wide range of problems. But with all the information out there, where do you start?
Meditation doesn't have to be hard and Mindfulness can be a lot of fun! Both can be powerful allies in living a more embodied and fulfilled life. You don't have to sign up to a religious belief system. You don't have to follow only one prescribed form of meditation. It doesn't even have to be time-consuming.
Because there simply aren't enough Feldenkrais Practitioners® or Awareness Through Movement® classes being offered around the world. Heck, here in the USA there are many communities that don't even have a local practitioner.
And for many, only doing recorded lessons alone aren't enough. They want to move with others and they want to have teachers that are geared towards how they are moving in the moment. And that is where the Feldenkrais® Live & Online Membership comes in. Thanks to the wonders of technology, we can move together and you can build a resource library that allows you to continue to do Awareness Through Movement whenever, and wherever you want.
Now all of that said, I encourage you to also attend classes locally! There is something delightful about rolling around on the floor with others in the same space. Plus, the only way that Feldenkrais will spread is if there is enough demand for more teachers and more classes.
• Movers, shakers and mindfulness makers... and those who want to be!
• Those seeking support in developing a Home Practice.
• Those who don't have a local Feldenkrais Practitioner® or Meditation Teacher.
• Anyone who travels and wants a guided practice on the go.
• All curious souls who want to be embodied.
• Those with chronic pain or a disabling disease who have not already worked with a Feldenkrais Practitioner®.
• Anyone with a condition or taking medication that affects their ability to sense pain or discomfort or affects their ability to control their position and movement.
• Those looking for a quick fix! This work and this membership were created to support those who want to keep learning and growing for life.
RUNNING JULY 31st - AUGUST 25th
This month's theme was designed with two things in mind. The first, exposing you to some of Moshe Feldenkrais' original works. And his book, Awareness Through Movement, is by far one of his clearest and most engaging reads. The second intention behind this series is to offer you an opportunity to do several Awareness Through Movement lessons during a short period of time. Thus, this series offers you four unique classes each week for three consecutive weeks.
Now this is a series based on his book, so for those who are game, there's some reading involved. In fact the first week of this program consists of reading the preface and the first seven chapters of the book. Don't worry, it's only about 65 pages.
Over the past several years there been a bit of an upswing in getting back to the developmental basics. Maybe you've even heard about the "Vestibular Reset"? It's a lovely rolling, rocking, and crawling protocol. But if you haven't heard of it, have no fear, we've been exploring these themes in the Feldenkrais world for years.
For the next three segments we're going to break down each of these phases into a series of lessons that will nourish your nervous system while improving your balance, reducing your forward head position, and enhancing the way you move through space.

Everyone is moved by something.
What's moved and motivated me has shifted throughout the years. In my early days of exploring the mind & body, I was moved to heal. I was driven by just enough dysfunction to evoke a desire for something different.... something more.
Gradually what moved me shifted.
Today, I'm moved by a deep sense of awe and curiosity! I lean into my personal practice (read spiritual vow) through my work at Conscious Movements, an online and in the flesh Feldenkrais & Holistic Health Coaching studio. I use movement, mindfulness and the almighty menu to teach others how to tap into their unique bio-individualty to thrive. My primary focus is on empowering movers, shakers and mindfulness makers…. and all of those who want to be, the skills they need to move past the discomfort that is holding them back from living fully!
