December 6, 2022 – Donna Maebori - Donna is a retired physical therapist, flutist and Feldenkrais certified practitioner. First Tuesdays for December and January will be the remaining two sessions of an introductory triad of Feldenkrais experiences. This past June was a lesson on breathing more specifically and fully, learning to choose where to direct one's breath. In December, "Jaw Relaxation" will be the theme where we will gain more in-depth sense of tongue and jaw movement. This lesson will be done sitting.
January 3, 2023 - Donna Maebori, returns! Per above, we continue our Feldenkrais sessions. January will be a classic "Pelvic Clock" lesson that ends with finding one's most easily-tall sitting posture. Donna Maebori, Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner and fellow flutist, will again be the presenter for these sessions. This lesson will be done sitting.
Thank you to our loyal and generous Commercial Members and Sponsors whose support makes it possible to offer these sessions. Please consider giving their business your support.
