The Roots of Resilience​

An Ongoing Program for Personal Growth Through
Changing Your Somatic Narrative

There is a clear connection between anxiety, trauma, and other difficult states of mind, and the sensations of our body. Our sensations and our habitual patterns of contraction can even amplify our feelings of anxiety or bring us to re-experience the feeling of past traumas. But how can we use this mind-body connection for growth and change?

As you explore the gentle, meditative movements of the Feldenkrais Method, you will gain a new awareness of your body and refine your ability to find support from the ground. As your posture and movement become more refined, your experience of bodily sensations can begin to shift from amplifying difficult emotions to a valuable resource to tap into in difficult times.  

Join Feldenkrais practitioner Dan Rindler for this exploration of the intersection of body and mind. This series can be valuable as a stand-alone experience or in conjunction with psychotherapy, somatic experiencing, or other approaches. These series are open to all and while they are geared toward those with high levels of anxiety they are usually attended by a wide-ranging group, from addressing everyday anxiety to dealing with PTSD, to those simply interested in the Feldenkrais Method.

“…health is the capability of regaining balance and standing poised again on one’s feet.” Moshe Feldenkrais

Centering

We may wish we could “get centered”, but the truth is that we are in constant motion, as are the circumstances of our lives. There is no center or balanced point that we ever simply find and keep. Instead, we can learn to refine our balancing and counter-balancing around a continually moving center.

Join me for this exploration into new ideas for refining your ability to counterbalance in physical movement as an entryway into finding your center in the midst of anxiety and other challenging emotions and situations. This group class is open to new and returning students. Oriented towards students who struggle with anxiety or trauma, open to all.

Breathe and Walk Tall

“Peace is every step” “Breathe You are Alive!” – Thich Nhat Hanh

With every step and each breath we have a new opportunity to find the inner resources to rise to our full height – supported and balanced. This 6 week series we will explore Feldenkrais-based movement explorations for refining both breathing and walking, leading to finding your true length and the space we each deserve to take in the world. Come explore and improve the complex system of actions that allow us to walk and breathe with poise and balance and a sense of internal strength.
