Seeing in the Dark- Bat Wisdom Series:
These classes work with our eyes and balance for better footing and walking into the unknown. The bat is one of the few mammals that can fly (other than the flying squirrel which is not quite the same…) We will draw wisdom from the bat who is comfortable and agile in the dark, uses their eyes, ears and nose to navigate and is also a highly socially organized animal- something we all can use in this pandemic.

– Continued lessons with Chest Flexibility
– Ease in Breathing
– Head/Neck/Chest Freedom

Learn some of the best self-help tools I’ve gathered over the past 35 years of study (yep, I’m getting older!): from Feldenkrais, mind-body practices, nature awareness and breath work.
