Anatomy In Action with Anastasi Siotas
This event, Anatomy in Action, is sponsored by the New England Region of the Feldenkrais® Guild North America, and is designed to provide Feldenkrais practitioners with a basic functional kinesthetic understanding of our musculoskeletal system in action.
During the course of the three weekends we will:
- Examine how the shape and location of our bones affects the transmission of forces generated by our effort through muscle synergies.
- Explore how joint dynamic and muscle coordination patterns move us through different orientations.
- Experience how postions and constraints in ATM lessons highlight and refine particular relationships.
Each workshop will focus on particular ATMs that address the structural, muscular, and kinesthetic topic at hand. We will deconstruct the steps of lessons and examine their implicaitons for whole body actions.
- Weekend 1: April 20 - 21 — Focus on Lower Extremities
- Weekned 2: May 18 - 19 — Focus on Torso & Breath
- Weekend 3: June 8 - 9 — Focus on Upper Extremities
All sessions 10:00am-6:00pm
There will be soft blankets available for use but please feel free to bring your own moving blanket or foam pad to this event. There are an assortment of restaurants in the area, and a small kitchen available on premises.
ATM for the public:
Anastasti will offer an ATM designed for the public during the Saturday lunch break of each workshop (1:30-2:30pm). The public ATMs will be structured following themes of anatomy and movement and fitness from these workshops for reorganizing the skeleton for easier access and greater possibilities of the whole self.
Registration will be on a first come-first serve basis, $20.00 at the door (new attendees will be given priority). Those attending the workshop who wish to stay, $10.00, space permitting.
