The Feldenkrais Method with Diane Gaary
Start Date: 2/4/2008Start Time: 5:00 PM
End Date: 2/4/2008End Time: 6:00 PM

Event Description
The Feldenkrais Method© was developed by Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais to teach people to develop their potential emotional and physical selves.  We will be exploring arm and spine movements through The Awareness through Movement© sequences, which are gentle movements designed to reprogram the human nervous system to work more efficiently.  When presented with the variety of movement options available to play an instrument, you will learn about your movement preferences and your body will naturally begin to choose the easiest way to move.
Bring a blanket or yoga mat.
