Feldenkrais Classes in Uptown

Jason Shadday, friend of the club and former member of Chicago Aikikai, is hosting a series of workshops teaching the Feldenkrais Method of exercise therapy at his massage studio in Uptown.
Feldenkrais was devised by Moshé Feldenkrais (1904–1984) who applied knowledge gained from his study of physics, engineering, and martial arts (judo) to an intensive self-study of movement habits.
All sessions will be taught by Suzanne Thompson, founder of the Feldenkrais program at Columbia College, and head Feldenkrais instructor at Steppenwolf Theater.

Details below.

Come to Your Senses (Feldenkrais Class)

Description: What is it about fall that makes us want to go back to class? It’s the human condition wanting to learn. Re-spark that brilliant brain that learned so easily when you were young. Join me as we explore our ribs and our breath, and maybe discover something new about our balance.
