While we often credit our legs for walking and running, the spine actually plays a more central role than we realize. This series of lessons is designed to build awareness and skill in how the spine and torso initiate and help control our gait during walking.

Through gentle, mindful movement explorations, you’ll learn how to improve balance, coordination, and range of motion, all leading to a more enjoyable and effortless walking experience. Feldenkrais is different than gentle yoga, but similar in the way that the lessons are like a mindful movement meditation. Each lesson builds upon the next lesson so that the students can feel how the practiced movement patterns benefit each other.

Most lessons in this series will be done on the floor, lying on the back or the side, with short explorations in standing, walking, and chair sitting. This gentle somatic program is suitable for anyone, including those recovering from hip or back surgery, or managing chronic pain in their walking. Gaining more freedom and confidence in your walking is key to an independent life. Come explore mindful movement that is targeted to improve walking, flexibility, balance, and coordination, leading to a smoother, confident, more enjoyable walking experience.
