Workshop Description: Advice abounds for parents of newborn children – from pediatricians, parenting experts, and even Wikipedia — to practice “tummy time.” Parents are directed to lay their babies in the prone position multiple times a day when they are awake and alert for a variety of reasons. Participants will be invited to engage in a movement activity vis-à-vis the Feldenkrais Method, a developmentally based way of teaching movement, in order to feel and perceive the experiences of very young children. Please wear pants and comfortable clothing for movement. Please click here to register.
