In this workshop we’ll explore ways of refining our kinesthetic sense of our midline through making this internal schema more explicit.

Coordination relative to an internal sense of middle orients us both inwardly (relative to ourselves) and outwardly (relative to the environment). This sense of middle provides us with a reliable system of reference, an internal home from which we can initiate movement, go further or return back. In all but ideal circumstances our own distinction between left, right and middle are not everywhere fully clear. Through coming to know left, right and the transition between the two we can begin to direct our actions more skillfully so that we more easily do what we intend.

Wear warm, comfortable clothing. No prior experience necessary. Open to all.

“To achieve a tiny step forward in awareness, such as the understanding of right and left, man must at one time have paid attention as he moved, alternately to what went on inside him and in the world outside. This shifting of the attention inward and outward creates abstractions and words that describe the shift in the position of his personal world relative to the outer world.” —Moshe Feldenkrais, “Awareness Through Movement,” 1972
