Turning on a dime. Can you turn that fast? Sometimes it feels like the world is spinning pretty darn fast, and it’s hard to keep up. Physically or metaphorically, it seems that we’re being called to turn quickly. To step forward right now; oops, maybe we need to go in this other direction; or should we go backwards to the “way it was”? Which is the right way to go? Is there an easy way to turn?
As children, we could twirl and twirl, and even if we got dizzy, we just rolled onto the ground and looked up at the sky. It was fun. Now, it’s not so fun. We start to notice that it’s not as easy as it used to be to turn to look over a shoulder, much less look all the way behind ourselves. What’s limiting that movement? And wouldn’t it be nice to twirl around on a moment’s notice, facing new directions and new possibilities.
Please join me on Thursdays in July for a Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement course called “Turning on a Dime.” We’ll explore ways to turn in any direction with greater ease and grace. It will surely make your body move more easily, and might even make adapting to changes a little easier. (And just to change things up a bit, and because July has an extra Thursday, we’ll start on the second Thursday, July 8.)
In a small-group, online setting, this four-week Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® course will explore simple ways to turn in many directions—and perhaps twirl.
Classes are suitable for almost all fitness levels. Willingness to lie on the floor, and an interest in moving more easily are all you need.
Four Thursdays, July 8, 15, 22, and 29, 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. U.S. Central Time
Online via Zoom
$100 for the four-session course. Please register by July 7.Participants will be provided access to an audio recording of each lesson, in case they need to miss a session or would like to refresh their experience of the lesson.
