Build your Bones with Movement Intelligence and :

  • Feel what it is like to stand with ease
  • Restore your vitality and flexibility
  • Improve balance
  • Get relief for your neck, hips, lower back, and other joints
  • Prevent Injury
  • Deepen your kinesthetic sense of your weight bearing and how you move through space

Come and learn easy, fun, and effective movement processes designed to improve your posture, the quality of your everyday movements, help prevent self- injury, get pain relief, and promote bone health.


The Bones for Life® Program series offers a new paradigm of strategies for deprogramming painful patterns of posture and movement facilitating options for moving and standing that are pain free. Based on the concepts of Somatic Integrative Learning also known as the Feldenkrais Method®, the movements awaken the intelligence of movement management while load bearing to promote bone building strength and restore proportional flexibility in the spine. These strategies allow the bodyworker to gain knowledge and experience anatomy from a functional perspective, developing insights and deepening one’s knowledge base of kinesthetic movement, and skeletal and muscular anatomy.


Day three and four of this series will focus on exploring:

  • Proper neck and lumbar alignment for safe weight bearing movements
  • Primal movements of locomotion such as creeping
  • Elements of walking while load bearing as a means to improve efficiency and quality of movement( The Water Carrier Walk)
  • How the impact of pressure in the foot affects walking

Although this program is primarily for self-care, it is appropriate and relevant to massage therapy. Some self-massage technique is practiced and hands on techniques will also be demonstrated when working with clients.


Classes are open to the general public. Participants should be able to lie on the floor and come to standing with little or no assistance.

Class Materials: Bring a mat or blanket to lie on, a pair of socks or small hand wash cloths, pillows to support neck and/or back and wear loose comfortable clothing.  A solid color, long piece of cotton cloth 21- 23ft. by 36-48 inches wide. This cloth is available at Joann Fabrics.  For questions about the class or to reserve a cloth, you may contact Anne Andrews at 386-538-1918 or
