Grounded in comfort

A series to explore comfort in your body, calmness in your mind and fullness in your breath. 

45-60min group lessons – via zoom.  A series of lessons chosen to help you begin to understand the principles of The Feldenkrais method, begin to spark your curiosity about the way that you move and to down regulate your nervous system at a time when stress is high for so many reasons for so many people. A little bit of self care amongst the chaos. 

COST: $100 for 6 lessons 1 x lessons per week. 

$200 for 12 lessons 2 x lessons per week (recommended) 

WHEN : Starting Tuesday 21st April 5:00pm and Friday 24th April 12:30pm. If you can’t make the times don’t worry we can send you a recording of the lesson, and you can enjoy the lesson at a time that suits.

Awareness through Movement® Lessons – PRIVATE (via zoom)

A lesson handpicked for you
– with instructions specifically for you to get the most out of your lesson.

45-60min lesson – via zoom. A lesson handpicked for you and whatever is going on for you at this point. Perhaps you would like increased freedom in your neck? Maybe your knees or feet are playing up? Perhaps what’s going on in the world is all a bit much and you are feeling super stressed and you need to take some time to focus on your breath and come back into your body. 

{A preliminary conversation with Viv a day or two beforehand can help you to prioritize what you would like to get out of the lesson and Viv can then guide you through a lesson hand picked for you.  She will guide you through the lesson with instructions specifically for you to get the most out of your lesson. }

This is a great option for people who like to learn alone rather than in a group, or those who like  the sound of having a little control over the focus of the lesson. Spaces for these private lessons each week are limited.

Cost: $100 

Nothing is permanent about our behavior patterns except our belief that they are so. ― Moshé Feldenkrais

Some things to remember when doing an ATM® lesson:
• Lie down on a carpeted floor, or smooth blanket or mat – you want to be comfortable but to be able to sense the feedback that the floor is giving you.  Have a towel or 2 handy for under your head should you need it.

Breathe, relax, and take your time. The lessons are designed to prompt neuroplastic changes in your brain, rewiring habits of movement and awareness to create more effective and pleasurable self-use.
Move slowly and start with small movements – pay attention to the quality of the movements rather than the range or the speed at which you can do them
• Never continue movements or configurations that increase your discomfort – If you do experience pain or discomfort make the movement slower and smaller or do the movement in your imagination
• If you “get lost” it’s usually best just to wait until the directions clarify things. After all, that’s what the live students did when the lesson was recorded!
