Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement
Adult and Senior / Fitness -
Adult Enrichment 2020-2021
Move better, feel better! Everything we do in life involves sensation and movement, and the Feldenkrais Method® harnesses both, using your brain’s deepest means of improvement (scientists call it “neuroplasticity”) to create change. This class uses exploratory movement and guided attention to evoke new, more efficient neuro-muscular patterns, reducing pain, tension, and fatigue, and improving your coordination, flexibility, balance, strength and focus. During each class, you will be verbally guided through a sequence of movements which can improve every area of the body. Join us and learn to use your whole self more efficiently and pleasurably in all you do!

This online class is held in partnership with Alexandria Community Education.
Maggie first experienced the Feldenkrais Method when a friend recommend the method as an alternative to back surgery for her chronic back pain. She is glad she said “yes” to that recommendation! After three Functional Integration lessons, Maggie felt so much better, she was inspired to learn the method and offer it to others!
Maggie’s background in Engineering (M.S.) and Mathematics (B.S.) is similar to Moshe Feldenkrais’s education and this helped her to feel a connection with the method. It’s important to her that the method has a foundation in science and that it produces consistent, reproducible results and measurable improvement.
Maggie is a 2013 graduate of the New York Feldenkrais Method Professional Training Program and has taught Awareness Through Movement classes in the Twin Cities since 2011.
