May and June Fit over Forty happenings  

Brier Stone Pool will open for classes Memorial Day – Monday May 29th or possibly Friday May 26th! All other classes – Fluid Motion and FITT ForEver and private clients will remain online for the summer. Hope to offer some WATSU® and AquaStretch sessions in the pool later in the year. See the schedule below. 
I hope that you have been receiving and enjoying my other newsletter – Fit Over Forty Fitness Newsletter. It has many exercise and lifestyle tips and a nice recipe each month and news from me. 
See my new feature below – Articles and Videos of Interest. A great video of how people move all over the world and how they use rhythm to help with movement and an article by me on how I use Feldenkrais® in my healing from my joint replacements. 
I hope to see some of you soon. It is great to see both and new students in my online classes and be able to keep up with everyone. Do take care.

Articles/Videos of Interest   Feldenkrais and Joint Replacements

I wanted to share with you an article that I wrote for a Feldenkrais publication for the public about my joint replacements. My Feldenkrais Journey through 5 Joint Replacements. As you know the Feldenkrais Method is my passion. 
The Feldenkrais Guild of North America publishes a monthly newsletter for the public – see the March issue here – March SenseAbility
See how people around the globe move and use rhythm to enhance and coordinate their movements.

Fit Over Forty Classses/Private Session     
FITT ForEver is standing arm and balance work, floor work – Pilates, abs/core and legs, stretching and yoga. We use light hand weights, a small ball, a strap and a mat. If you have questions, please contact me – I would love to see some of you back at class.
Fluid Motion – Would you like to reconnect with your body? Be able to get back to walking in the park, exercise class, traveling? The Feldenkrais Method® classes can help you get back into an active vibrant life style. If you have never tried a Feldenkrais Methodt® Awareness through Movement® class, this is a perfect time. Get on your mat or on your bed, put your camera so that I can see you and join in. A perfect way to de-stress, relax and move.   
Pool – at BrierStone will open the end of May. We are planning on classes M/W/F at 12:30pm. I expect pool to be perfect this year!!! It is cleaning up as we speak.

TaiJi – I would love to get this class going again. Contact me if you are interested – on the Brier Stone porch or deck for the summer?? We will revisit Yang Family classics – Qong Form – 10 movement form, 13 movement form and 16 movement form and learn a new Modern Style form with a few adaptations just for us.   
(I am aware that some of you would rather have in person classes. If you are interested in going into the Clarke Country Parks and Rec building and then participating in classes, please contact Shannon or me.) 
For online classes sign up for classes through the Clarke County Parks and Rec by the month or get a drop in pass from me. Which ever way works best for you.
