This FeldenkraisⓇ class guides you through your own exploration of how your body moves, and is informed by Samo Myers' Tai Chi expertise, especially as it relates to your "nine pearls," or nine major joints. When we sense the parts of us that are stuck and learn how to move them, we feel flow in our bodies and agency in our lives. This is an extraordinary tool for those seeking to improve their performance, or to find relief from physical pain and discomfort.
