We will meet at the SW end of the lake at the park bench that is just in front of the bathrooms near the blue crew stadium bleachers. The bench is closer to the road. Please be on time as we will leave by 6:05pm to begin walking and you won’t know which direction we have gone.
***These walking ATM® classes were the inspiration for my CD series The Walking Way: Stepping Into Awareness. Of course, you will be able to get a taste of the CD series by attending one or all of the series this year!
Continues by Popular Demand! Embody grace, efficiency and ease with walking! Change your brain patterns for walking to efficiency and ease! We will explore some unique and fun ATM® lessons while walking at Green Lake Park. Each ATM will explore a different pattern of efficient and comfortable walking. Awareness Through Movement (ATM) explorations are powerful experiments in using a particular type of curious and non-judgmental noticing while moving. This series is unique as all of the lessons are done while walking slowly in the summer evening light and air at Green Lake.
Walking is one of the most habitual activities we do as humans. These lessons will not only improve your ability to ground yourself more fully while walking and standing but also allow a fluid and graceful ease to unfold in how you walk through your life in general! Leaning to explore the subtle patterns within walking is powerful! Being able to perceive some of the dynamic relationships that unfold in such a habitual activity creates many new choices. Our walking will be in order to explore how it is we walk. We are not trying to walk for speed or to complete any particular distance. You can benefit whether you come to the whole series or just drop-in for a couple of classes.
This series is well loved and helpful for creating a sense of ease whether you walk a lot or a little in your life. You will be able to use these ATM’s over and over again as you walk through your life! Dress in comfortable walking shoes and bring an extra layer in case of weather. Please do not carry a purse or backpack as it is best to be able to walk unencumbered.
Drop in or come for the whole series. See you at the lake!
