Awareness through Movement® classes – or the Feldenkrais Method® – offer an exciting holistic approach to health and healing. During class, you are guided through a series of deceptively simple exercises, which have a profound effect on your posture, breathing, and ease of movement. Some classes will focus on lengthening the spine; others on easier sitting, turning, reaching, or bending – things we do in everyday life and can do with greater ease. These classes are a wonderful complement to any exercise program, and are especially beneficial for anyone experiencing fatigue, pain, or restriction of movement. Benefits include deeper relaxation and fuller breathing as well as improved emotional well being and comfort. To register or for more information, email carolregan53@gmail.com or call 301-565-8208

Carol Regan, MPH, Feldenkrais® Awareness through Movement® Practitioner, has been involved in health, health care and healing for the past thirty-five years. She began practicing this Method nearly 10 years ago, and is committed to individual and small group learning to improve health, well-being and healing.

Ecstatic Drumming Circle for Therapists and Bodyworkers, with Sharon Gervasoni

Saturday, May 20 • 3pm to 5pm • $30

In these times, therapists are being called upon to hold even more than usual for their clients. This circle will be an opportunity to rest into communally-created rhythms and silence, using drums, rattles, and other percussion instruments. Studies have confirmed what all indigenous cultures know—that drumming in a group releases endorphins and can lead to a sense of self-transcendence (ecstasy) that is nourishing and healing.

Sharon is trained as a massage therapist and shamanic practitioner, and is an ordained interfaith/interspiritual minister and former hospice volunteer. She has been drumming for decades, and facilitating monthly ecstatic drumming circles in spiritual community for 5 years.

No drumming experience is needed; instruments will be provided. If you do have a drum, rattle or other percussion instrument, please bring it!

Space is limited to 20 participants.  Register by emailing Sharon at RevSharonG@gmail.com; she will then send you a PayPal link to complete registration.
