Have you ever paused to consider how you walk?

Walking is an integral part of our daily lives, a simple act that often goes unnoticed. Whether it's a leisurely stroll in the park or a quick trip to the kitchen to whip up a meal, we seamlessly transition from one place to another with little thought.

Each of us has a distinctive way of moving, a unique gait that sets us apart. No two individuals walk alike, and therein lies the beauty of it.

Is there a "correct" way to walk? Can we refine this unconscious act?

Our personal histories shape our gait—our early development, emotions, and life experiences, whether joyful or challenging, influence how we move. 

What to expect:

  • Become aware of you unconscious movement habits
  • Explore early developmental movements that are the foundation for walking
  • Develop an appreciation for the hip-shoulder relationship
  • Learn how you legs function differently
  • Improve your relationship with gravity and your posture

Join me in the Feldenkrais workshop, where we explore the fascinating realm of walking awareness. We will explore the foundational developmental movements that have shaped your walking habits. You will uncover and engage with the subtle nuances of your unconscious walking habits through guided exploration. 

By the end of this workshop, you will have a newfound lightness in your step, a more effortless gait, an improved posture, and an enhanced sense of awareness of yourself and the world around you. Walk with confidence, grace, and gratitude for your enhanced self-awareness.

    I loved the “The Art of Walking Awareness” workshop. I enjoyed the progression through the lessons; it felt pleasurable as my walking became smoother and more coordinated. A bonus breathing lesson was added at the end of the workshop. I left the workshop feeling like I was walking on air.

    For me, Al’s Feldendkrais Walking Awareness workshop was a very interesting and confirming way of exploring the mind/body relationship when walking. My walking is almost exclusively unconscious. This class explored the developmental stages of walking, from crawling thru active propulsion. Thru these lessons Al facilitates the connection of body mechanics, with conscious awareness, developing an understanding of how the whole body is involved in this seemingly ordinary task. This workshop showed me that we all develop differently, there is no right way, and one can choose to walk in a conscious way. It was a surprise, feeling that there could be a meditative quality when I walked.
