Awareness Through Movement

with Julie Wrigley – Saturdays, 10:30am

Feldenkrais_lesson_arm_rgb_crop“Movement is life. Life is a process. Improve the quality of the process and you improve the quality of life itself.”

Julie teaches gentle and calming mat-based classes – Awareness Through Movement – which provide a means for you to explore your whole self (body and mind), with movement as the medium.  The aim is for everyone to be able to move with maximum ease and minimum effort.

Lessons adopt a softly, softly approach, which immerses you in the moment, mindfully. You are guided to explore novel, yet gentle, movement patterns, with an emphasis on curiosity and attention.

In this way, you increase your sensitivity to yourself and fine-tune your co-ordination. The result is more mobility, balance and power, along with a sense of inner peace.

This style of class is taken from Feldenkrais – a holistic, mind-brain-body approach to re-learning how to move with grace and ease, making it possible to improve, from any starting point.

The classes can be enjoyed by all sorts of people – whether your goals are improving performance in sport, pain reduction, preventing injury or simply de-stressing.

Awareness Through Movement can be booked directly by contacting julie@smoothmoveslab.org – £40 per 5 week term or £10 drop-in.
