Portland's Community Feldenkrais Clinic
Vital Human is a community Feldenkrais clinic focused on introducing the public to the potential and possibilities of The FELDENKRAIS METHOD® of Somatic Education. Founded in 2010, we've helped hundreds of people become aware of how they can be proactive and increase the comfort and quality in their lives.
Between now and February 2015, we are studying a series of lessons brought to the United States in 1972 by Moshe Feldenkrais, some of the seminal lessons he used to introduce his method. The format is as follows: a 45-minute Awareness Through Movement lesson takes place, followed by 20 minutes of discussion, and then a short break. There are 3 lessons for each of these special clinics.
Note: The Vital Human clinic meets 12 times a year, on the 3rd Sunday of each month. We rent space from Hipbone Studio and each Feldenkrais teacher has an office and teaches classes in the community. After you have attended several clinics and get the idea of the Method, you are welcome to attend those community classes to deepen your learning process.
When: The 3rd Sunday of EVERY MONTH
The November Vital Human clinic will be a fundraiser for The Dougy Center. We will have a Feldenkrais Marathon with 5 Feldenkrais lessons taught by 3 different teachers.
