"CHANGE YOUR AGE -- Use Your Body and Brain to Feel Younger, Stronger, and More Fit" (OLLI) 11 weeks
BOOMERS: Feeling old(er)? Consider: your movement habits at ages 40-50 will impact how you feel at age 60 and beyond. The good news is we can shed our physically limiting habits and learn new habits that make our bodies and minds agile and more fit. This groundbreaking program, based on The Feldenkrais Method® of Neuromuscular Reeducation, applies the principals of childhood development and neuroplasticity to adult learners. You will learn simple but powerful exercises that will train your brain to send signals to your muscles to move in healthier, stronger, and more coordinated ways. The program is not stressful, and does not involve repetitive routines. It does not place demands on your muscular strength and flexibility. You will shed your physically limiting movement habits and learn new habits that make your bodies and minds more intelligent, agile, youthful, and fit.
Note: This topic will be offered in weekly classes and in a workshop format.

"The Esalen Lessons"
(Durham and Carrboro) through Fall

The Feldenkrais Method® works on the premise that it is the brain that organizes movement. We will provide our brains with explorations designed to improve our posture, our breathing, our walking, our balance, and/or our problem solving. Each week will be a surprise as we make our way through seminal lessons that Dr. Feldenkrais taught at Esalen in 1972, before he had started any of his North American training programs.
