Feldenkrais (Zoom)

April 16, 2020

Classes are aimed around improving functioning on all levels, decreasing pain, increasing sensitivity (to self, others, and the world around us), and decreasing stress and anxiety. These are not exercise classes in the traditional sense, and they involve no stretching or straining. You’ll be doing movements within your comfort range, with the goal of developing new and improved automatic patterns of movement. Anyone can do this work, and no experience is necessary. Most lessons take place laying on the ground, so it’s helpful if you have a set up with your phone, laptop, or tablet where I can see you on the floor, although it’s your choice whether to be seen, so don’t let that stop you from participating.

Stage 7’s entrance into the world of Virtual Ballet classes aims to satisfy our need to keep moving while still respecting the national “social distancing” response to COVID19.

We will keep Stage 7’s unique laboratory approach to barre and encourage all participants to move with personal integrity… and joy!

As we all adapt to the online environment. please expect corrections, suggestions, and lovingly sarcastic remarks.

What’s different about online classes from Stage 7?

  • No mirrors = trust your senses
  • No “front” = adapt to the space you’re in
  • No life-sized person in front of you to follow = Look inside for ease, power, freedom, integrated function, fresh experiences of centuries-old practices.
  • No strict atmosphere = expect surprises, revel in them… then laugh!
  • Let the dancers in Stage 7 doing the exercises to be your guide you = Don’t worry that we’re not all in sync…. exactly….
  • Breathe = Let you whole body find its groooove
  • ENJOY 🙂
