Yana Shala Presents:

Awareness Through Movement® with Angela Alston

Time: 10:00 am - 12 pm

Speaker: Angela Alston

Topic:  Would you like to be more flexible? Would you like to improve your balance? Would you simply like to know your physical self better?

If you answered “Yes” to at least one of these questions, you’ll benefit from Awareness Through Movement (ATM), the group version of The Feldenkrais Method of Somatic Education.

Each lesson begins with simple movements, which gradually increase in complexity, all organized around a function such as hip opening, movement of the shoulder girdle, or organizing head and neck. You'll discover greater pleasure in moving. ATM is an excellent complement to yoga and other movement modalities.

"Truly remarkable that such simple movements can have such a large impact.”
— Michelle Accardo, MS, ATC, LMT, CLT


Angela Alston, GCFP, MFA helps formerly active people with sedentary jobs re-discover movement ease. Her work is based on biomechanics, neuroplasticity, and her lifelong love of movement. She has studied a variety of movement forms, including yoga and dance, and is an award-winning maker of dance films. Angela has an MFA from the University of Texas at Austin and a BA in philosophy and biology from Swarthmore College. She is currently enrolled in an 18-month advanced training focused on ideal organization and profound strength. *"We improve our well-being when we learn to fully use ourselves."
