Classes for the Mindful, Ardent, and Uneasy (January 2nd, Begin Again)

December 31, 2012

Isn’t it true that in life, like in boating, we’re at the mercy of the seas?

Some days, the wind barely blows, the water is smooth, and the world is at ease. Other days, the wind kicks up the chop and the journey jolts you to the bone. On the worst days, when you can’t put the boat in the water for fear of capsizing, you’re better off sitting by the fire reading a good book.

It’s cliché to say that the world is changing and something is afoot, the old status quo is no longer a viable option. And, no matter who we are, we can benefit from many ways to handle the choppy and overwhelming events in our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual selves.

As I look ahead at the coming year, my committment to my students is to keep practicing and teaching the skills that create poised-and-ready-for-spontaneous-action postures. We will continue the dialogue of how you can apply this method of self-education to your life to the greatest benefit for your health and well-being. We can likely agree we’d like to balance on the deck of the boat in choppy water, ready and resilient for what will come.

I know your time is valuable and your resources finite. If you only take one class a week, I hope you think of a Feldenkrais class with me.

All the best in 2013!
