Leslie McClintock and I are the happy caretakers of what was previously known as the Feldenkrais Transformational Movement Class. We hope those who have taken Feldenkrais classes with Jan Peterson, or Dee Cope, will continue to join us Friday mornings at 11am as we explore learning to move with more ease and improve and expand our brain’s connections to moving well.

Do you want more from your life? To experience greater ease and comfort? Reduce pain and limitation? Increase your sense of strength and mobility? Transformational Movement Lessons, based on the work of Moshe Feldenkrais and Anat Baniel, can help. Gentle, novel movements, help awaken your brain. Learning creates new neural connections and makes new movement patterns possible. These changes create differences that you can use in your everyday life. Wear layered warm, loose fitting clothing, and bring a towel for extra comfort. Min 12 Max 20 Instructors: Leslie McClintock and Barry Nordby, Certified ABM Practitioners

“She will dance at her wedding”: Healing the girl born without part of her brain –

Norman Doidge’s new book The Brain’s Way of Healing is now available. It has an entire chapter about Moshe Feldenkrais. Moshe was Anat’s teacher and the founder of the Feldenkrais Method. Doidge highlights some of Anat’s amazing work with children. I’m so happy that this book is going to help bring more awareness to this work. I haven’t read the entire book yet, but I love what I’ve read so far.

From the article at Salon:

“She will dance at her wedding”: Healing the girl born without part of her brain

The origin of Moshe Feldenkrais’ therapeutic method reads more like a spy thriller than a neuroscience textbook

Looking forward to a new treadmill

I’ve been looking at adding a treadmill to my standing desk and here’s the best one I’ve found so far:

TR1200-DT3 Treadmill Desk

Complete disclosure: I signed up as an affiliate, so if you click the link above and buy one, I’ll get a commission.

I’m still thinking about my desk. I may just raise a few more inches to accommodate the treadmill, or I may also get an automatic desk so I can adjust the height for treadmill, standing, and sitting. I don’t sit much when I work anymore, so it I’m not sure what I’ll do yet.

I’ll write a review when I’ve made final decisions and have had some time to work with what I get.
