Length, width and integrity ; Feldenkrais ATM

$85.00

6 Lesson series exploring three elements I find so important to my own growth; Length, width and integrity through rolling.

This series is a continuation of my last series called “Cultivating Awareness as a means for Learning, Growing and Thriving.”

In this series, we will continue our question from last series – what does it mean to be healed? Can you really heal and what is the standard of health In my perspective, health means to simply, at whatever point, be able to make a choice, make a change and continue growing.

The more I find myself growing, the more I find the three elements which allow me to thrive; length, width and integrity. Allowing myself to really connect to the length of my five lines, to the width of my shoulders, the space in my pelvis and of course the width of my smile gives me access to genuine Integrity. When I am invested in my own integrity, no matter what befalls me, I am able to make a choice and that choice will always be from a space of love rather than fear.

Do you know what I mean? I feel this connection between the ground, my spine and my smile that gives me this beautiful sense of light. I know when its there, and it know when its missing.

I also know what it feels like when its missing… I feel small, tight and outside of myself. Do you know what I mean?

The lessons will be based around movements of simple quiet rolling. As Moshe Feldenkrais so wonderfully puts it

“We do movements just to test ourselves if we are sleeping or are awake. That means to distinguish if we are able to pay attention, to do what we want or if something inside us, by itself does what it wants. In other words, we are trying to stop being machines, but rather to become something closer to being a human that has awareness, knows what they are doing, and does what they want, and not that it is done by itself and is what “it” wants. In other words, “it” is not “me”. ”

In my own words, Feldenkrais is not about movement or about improvement or anything like that… it about about learning about yourself and finding yourself more. And what better path to integrity than through exploring yourself?

About Awareness Through Movement

→ In these Awareness Through Movement classes, I verbally lead you through a sequence of movements in a variety of positions. These precisely structured movement explorations involve thinking, sensing, moving and feeling. By increasing awareness, you will learn to abandon habitual patterns of movement and develop new alternatives, resulting in improved flexibility and coordination, less pain, more comfort.

→ It helps counter anxiety by understanding the effect on the body. It really just makes you feel taller, more grounded and relaxed – and who doesn’t want that! Doing Feldenkrais is not only for chronic symptoms or pain, it’s also used to increase skill, to open yourself up to new ideas, find choice in absence, and secure proper and easy aging!

→ Many Awareness Through Movement lessons are based on developmental movements and ordinary functional activities (reaching, standing, lying to sitting, looking behind yourself, etc.). Some are based on more abstract explorations of joint, muscle, and postural relationships. Lessons are fully accessible to those with varying movement possibilities – because lessons can even work in the imagination. Sounds like magic because it is!! The magic of the brain!

What you will gain

  • Doing consistent Awareness Through Movement has the same benefits as yoga, meditation and exercise :
  • A sense of strength, stability and flexibility all at the same time.
  • A heightened sense of yourself; feeling close to yourself, your wants and needs.
  • Less anxiety!
  • Better breathing.
  • Tools to get better if something goes wrong. EX: In these lessons, you learn to move functionally so when if time comes where you fall or get hurt, you have the tools to fall in way that will hurt you less and you have the tools to get better faster.

"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 About my online classes

"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 About my online classes
and private lessons

"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 About my private lessons

"Andréa's classes left me feeling peaceful, physically stronger and more awakened in my day to day work."

Anonymous About my online classes

"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 About my classes

"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 About my private lessons

"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."
