NEW TO FELDENKRAIS? Arrive at 8:15 for an intro of what to expect!
**Feldenkrais is a learning, mindful, embodied practice of slowing down and experiencing how you move. In a lesson we combine our own curiosity and awareness with Moshe Feldenkrais' profound knowledge of coordination and developmental movement patterns. It's a practice of decreasing doing and increasing awareness. 

Wear layers, it's really common for your body temperature to drop as your nervous system relaxes.

Yoga Lab with Molly Kitchen

Molly Kitchen

Molly Kitchen

In this all-bodies-welcome class, we explore asana, pranayama and philosophical themes as they relate to real life experiences. We’ll use the yoga mat as a “laboratory” to explore not only physicality, functional movement, and proprioception, but also the more subtle realms of mind and heart. Expect plenty of invitations to deep inner listening, smart out-of-the-box approaches to postures, and a lovely community of supportive fellow practitioners.

Tuesdays, 6:00–7:15pm, January 8 - April 30, 2019

$15 Drop-In; $180 Semester Pass; Sliding Scale 10-$15 available as needed -- cash preferred; you can also pay online: https://www.mollykitchen.com/northampton-class-pass
