Movements for Moms are a series of Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement classes with a focus on the issues arising from pregnancy. Feldenkrais Instructor Alan Questel developed Pregnant Pauses, a scientifically proven Feldenkrais program that alleviates your pregnancy pain, increases your energy and helps you have a healthier overall pregnancy which we draw upon in our classes. The classes are designed to alleviate pain and discomfort while increasing energy to ultimately provide an overall healthier pregnancy. All classes are suitable for all women throughout their entire pregnancy.

Improve your quality of life adjusting to the changes occurring through each stage of your pregnancy. By doing small, gentle movements during your day you will be amazed at how easily you will be able to do everyday tasks such as rolling over in bed, getting up or down; sleeping, breathing and moving more freely…even learning how to do Kegel exercises in an easier, more efficient way.

In conjunction with group classes for pregnant Moms at Movement Dialogues, you can also purchase Alan’s Pregnant Pauses DVD set to support your practice and comfort at home. The DVD has over 7 hours of proven instruction compiled into 6 different “Pauses” each aimed to teach simple movement methods, explained step by step so you will gain maximum benefit. In addition there are short talks to help you understand the thinking and theory behind each “Pause.” At Movement Dialogues we also provide continued support after the birth of your child with Child’Space Charlotte.

Easier than Yoga, more fun than Pilates, you’ll be guided to a new understanding of how your body works and how you can move!
