Motion Exploration is a way to improve function and learn about our full potential through an inquisitive approach. Services include Pilates, Personal Training, The Feldenkrais Method, Dance, Stretching and Breathing exercises.
The Feldenkrais Method® intends to make one aware of his/her habitual neuromuscular patterns and rigidities and to expand his/her movement repertoire, increasing sensitivity and improving efficiency. By experiencing the quality associated with the movement (various qualities may include ease or difficulty, smoothness or jerkiness, strain or effortlessness) one can pay attention as to how the movement is being performed (how much of the whole self is being involved. What is the trajectory of the movement and where it is initiated from) rather then how far the movement can go. This study of self-use involves many repetitions of similar movements. The student then refines his/her own awareness. He/she will learn how to differentiate and approach each repetition with new curiosity each time, which will result in opening more possibilities in expending their range of motion and movement repertoire.

By the means of these Awareness Through Movement® lessons we are looking to improve comfort on a day-to-day basis. We use gentle movement since the slowness helps us to notice where the extra tensions are and to notice the effort not necessary but which we are doing by habit to execute a simple movement. Eliminating parasitic muscles (The ones not necessary to execute one particular action) improves movement efficiency. Moving becomes more pleasurable, more graceful, and effortless.
