Feldenkrais Demo in Cedars Open Studios

The Cedars neighborhood houses dozens of artists and art-related businesses. Come Saturday, Nov. 22, for this annual event (and add it to your calendar for next year—always the Saturday before Thanksgiving). This is the neighborhood I’m delighted to call home, just south of downtown and I-30, between I-35 and I-45.Map of Cedars Open Studios

You’ll discover artists working in many media: ceramics, glass, wood, paint and more. Find some holiday gifts for family (or yourself!).

I’m teaching a free Awareness Through Movement® demo at Divine Sight Healing Arts from 12 to 1. There’ll be two short lessons, with time in between for discussion. Come explore your physical self with the Feldenkrais Method®, or bring that friend you’ve been wanting to introduce to the method! Snacks! Divine Sight is at 1320 Griffin St. East, Dallas, TX, 75215.

Demonstrations all day long at Bowman Glass Arts, Dallas Heritage Village, Ham Hula T-Shirt Co., Born Below, and more. Fun for the whole family!

And when you’re ready for refreshments, stop by Full City Rooster (freshest of coffee) or Lee Harvey’s (wonderful veggie sandwiches). Plus all the studios will be offering treats.

The 12th annual Cedars Open Studios runs from noon to 6 pm. All locations on the tour have maps. Visit the event website for more info about participating artists and businesses.


2013 Feldenkrais Conference: Just a glimpse

I just spent five days soaking up new knowledge and sharing insights with dozens of other Feldenkrais® teachers, at the 2013 Feldenkrais Conference for teachers of the method.

Below is just a snippet of a workshop I took with master trainer Jeff Haller. Titled “Ground, Grounding, Grounded,” the workshop focused on stability and mobility. Dr. Haller is particularly interested in both how we begin movement and how, even as we move, we can stay free and available to change at any moment. Fascinating: I’ve come away with lots of ideas to explore, in both private lessons and group classes. (Yes, that is me demonstrating on the table!)

This is the first time I’ve attended our annual conference: I look forward to more.
