About Grand Union:

My family and I clear the view so that I can lead them through a Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement lesson in front of the house where we spent summers growing up. The lesson is called “Exaggerating your pattern and adopting the opposite.” Side-by-side, about a window’s width apart, we take our places in a line-up that resembles a sex ed chart, except that we’re ordered according to age alone rather than sex or height—father, mother, sister, sister, brother, ______, brother—holding the place of our brother Nicholas, who was Down syndrome and passed away eight years ago.

About Feldenkrais (from

"The Feldenkrais Method® is a form of somatic education that uses gentle movement and directed attention to improve movement and enhance human functioning. Through this Method, you can increase your ease and range of motion, improve your flexibility and coordination, and rediscover your innate capacity for graceful, efficient movement. These improvements will often generalize to enhance functioning in other aspects of your life.  

"The Feldenkrais Method is based on principles of physics, biomechanics and an empirical understanding of learning and human development. By expanding the self-image through movement sequences that bring attention to the parts of the self that are out of awareness, the Method enables you to include more of yourself in your functioning movements. Students become more aware of their habitual neuromuscular patterns and rigidities and expand options for new ways of moving. By increasing sensitivity the Feldenkrais Method assists you to live your life more fully, efficiently and comfortably."
