Movement for Wellness
Feldenkrais® group classes are known as Awareness Through Movement® lessons. Similar to Tai Chi or gentle yoga, Awareness Through Movement classes use slow, mindful movements to achieve powerful effects in terms of strength, flexibility, and holistic integration of body and mind. Unique to the Feldenkrais Method® of somatic education is that these lessons tie directly into functional movements of daily life, such as walking efficiently, safely lifting objects, and improving one’s posture in sitting or standing.
How It works
You can expect a class to last somewhere between 30 and 60 minutes. You might walk, stand, or sit in a chair, although usually, you will lie on the floor in a variety of comfortable positions: either on your back, front, or side. The teacher guides students through a sequence of movements, encouraging them to move with gentle attention within a comfortable range. You may become aware of unexpected and interesting connections within and between the movements. As you attend to the improving quality of movement, unnecessary muscular tensions throughout the body can reorganize and release. Students are often amazed at the quick and clear changes that occur through the neuromuscular repatterning that happens in an Awareness Through Movement lesson!

"I loved how Andréa offered us different movement exercises that gave me a lot of insight on how I move through the world; even if we were on zoom, I could feel their presence and kindness. They were very generous in their teaching and support during and after classes. "Pascale Brunet
"After class, I remember finding everything so colourful and beautiful. Like i was seeing everything for the first time!. I recommend Andréa for the sweetness of their presence, touch and their empathetic strength to accompany you professionally in the discomfort of the winding path of self-love.”Émilie Savoie
"Andréa’s curious mind and kindness makes Feldenkrais a welcome break in my week and a perfect time to just reconnect with my self."Kadi

"I love this method! Andréa is an excellent teacher. Each class takes me deeper into the subtle power of awareness, softness and gentle movements. I live with chronic pain and have a brain injury, and the more I practice, the more I feel it helping transform and re-wire my neural pathways!"Sky
"After each session, I feel relaxed, I move with ease and fluidity. Some pains have disappeared and the impact can be felt days after!"Hélène C
"I want to take this opportunity to thank you for the work we are doing together. I have been believing my body is defective for some time now, especially after the stroke. I had a difficult time “listening” to my body because I did not trust what it had to tell me. Slowly, this belief is changing and I am coming home (for lack of better words) to my body. I am very grateful. Thank you so much."Anonymous
