Feldenkrais: Awareness Through Movement

Move better and improve your life!  Through guided movements and improved awareness of how you move you can eliminate pain, calm your nervous system, encourage rehabilitation from injury/surgery,  and do whatever it is you love to do with more ease and elegance.   Feldenkrais engages all of you, and especially your brain in altering patterns or habits that no longer serve you.

Here is what one student says about Christy's classes:  “… Awareness through Movement is not only a treat for my body and mind, but you and your gracious teaching style are a treat for my soul. Your classes are professional, yet silly and fun; your instructions are succinct yet descriptive; and I am always in awe of how you can so specifically guide my movements while still allowing me to feel like everything is within my command or was my idea to begin with!”

TaijiFit

TaijiFit™ is the most unique workout to come along in decades. It’s a ride along the wave of your Inner Power, like surfing on your own life energy – the Qi. It combines the best elements of fitness, meditation and the ancient martial art of Taijiquan (Tai Chi).  We like to refer to a TaijiFit workout class as “an experience.” When you take a TaijiFit class, you find yourself moving your body with the grace and confidence of the ancient Taiji masters who learned the secret of balancing yin and yang – strength with beauty, power with peace, endurance with flow. The TaijiFit™ Experience was developed by David-Dorian Ross, who has been studying classical Taijiquan for more than 30 years. “I’ve always felt that Taiji was the most exciting, energizing and beneficial exercise ever invented. For my entire career I’ve worked on ways to introduce it to more people, so they can experience what I’ve learned.”
