Weekly Awareness Through Movement® Classes

Currently, all weekly classes are on-line.

Class themes relate to daily activities, such as reaching, bending, walking, working at the computer, playing with children or grandchildren.  Each class is a stand-alone lesson related to a theme.  Students move slowly, within a comfortable range, in a non-comparative and non-competitive setting.  I am committed to addressing individual limitations and needs, allowing students of any fitness level and ability to participate.  Time for comments and questions encourage applications to daily life situations.  Students frequently comment: “It’s not your usual exercise class!”

 

Classes are about an hour in length.  Often we lie on the floor for the lesson; sometimes we stand or sit in a chair.  Dress comfortably in layers and arrange a mat or blanket for lying on the floor.  Have a towel or small pad available if you need something under your head when lying on your back.

    

When we return to in-person classes, a raised platform will be available to allow participation by those unable to get to and from the floor easily.  Contact me in advance to check platform availability.
