Did you ever think it could be a challenge for you to have more pleasure in your life? 

Or could you imagine experiencing greater pleasure when you are faced with a challenge?

Pleasure and challenge, experiences that are too often exclusive of each other, will be the focus of this audio workshop. Utilizing Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® (ATM®) lessons, you will safely and enjoyably inquire into your process.

    As someone fairly new to Feldenkrais, I want something that is both practical and helps me understand the method. Alan Questal does a great job of both. The ATM instructions are easy to follow and the talks before and after do a great job of integrating theory and method.
