YMCA To Host Movement Workshop

On Saturday, July 12, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., the Jamestown YMCA will host a Feldenkrais Method Awareness Through Movement workshop led by Maxine Davis.

Davis is a New York City-based Feldenkrais practitioner who has been sharing her passion for the method since 1991.

“The Feldenkrais Method provides a way to increase your awareness of how you do what you do, so you can do what you want,” Davis said. “This body/mind approach offers a means of self-education and self-exploration through movement that is particularly useful for people suffering from chronic pain, as well as performers, athletes and those simply interested in experiencing increased vitality in their lives.”

Awareness Through Movement classes consist of a series of verbally directed and carefully structured movement sequences involving the body and the imagination. The movements are performed in a variety of positions – lying down, sitting or standing – which address a range of functions necessary for the safe, effective and powerful use of one’s self.

Space is limited. The registration deadline is Thursday, July 10. The cost is $10 for YMCA members and $15 for non-members. For more information and to register, visit the Jamestown YMCA, 101 E. Fourth St., or call 664-2802.
