“A few minutes of Feldenkrais can give you the flexibility & postural benefits of hours of stretching exercises.”— Anne Rosenthal, PhD
Are you recovering from injury? Dealing with chronic pain? Would you like to move with greater ease? Would you simply like to know your physical self better?
If you answered “Yes” to at least one of these questions, you’ll benefit from Awareness Through Movement (ATM®), the active version of The Feldenkrais Method® of Somatic Education.
Each lesson begins with simple movements, which gradually increase in complexity, all organized around a function such as hip opening, movement of the shoulder girdle, or organizing head and neck.
“Wow, that was incredible. It’s hard to believe little movements can do so much, but obviously they do.”—Janet A., after her first ATM class
PLEASE NOTE: Mats and props are provided, but you are encouraged to bring your own mat specifically designed for the Feldenkrais practice, which may be purchased online at WellMats.
Instructor Angela Alston, GCFP, MFA, began taking Awareness Through Movement® in 1996. She trained in The Feldenkrais Method® of Somatic Education in New York, Houston, and Chicago and was certified to teach ATM® in 2008. Angel also offers Functional Integration® private sessions.

What a fantastic afternoon! . . . And I had a BALL. I felt something loosen inside, as if I'd finally set down a great weight and my body could relax. - Sally Felt

Ready to be heard? This is a playground for expressing your authentic voice! Tune into your inner voice and connection to the Divine Creative Source that is seeking expression through you. Get out of your head and into your heart. Free your voice and empower your life. Expand your comfort zone. The voice is a very powerful tool for healing, transformation, creation, and connection. Your voice is your identity in sound and a holographic blueprint of all your life experiences. This will be a safe place to find your voice, move through fear, practice singing and being more self-expressed in front of others. Singing tips will be given to improve performance, but the primary emphasis is on finding and freeing your voice to open up greater self-expression and joy in all areas of your life. No singing experience is required. Professional singers will also benefit.
The "Free Your Voice Workshop" has been one of the most empowering things I have ever done for myself. I know that what I have to contribute to Life has value---both in communication and in action. I have a whole new way of listening to myself and to others. That dis-empowering "self-talk" has diminished greatly, which in itself, is MUCH to celebrate! THANK YOU, Debbie!!! -Jimmie Terry
Debbie's class was powerful and fun! As a healer myself, I know when deep healing is happening even on a cellular level. Debbie's loving, easy approach embraces you and really nourishes you through the process of discovering the power of your voice and its connection to the Divine within you. –Marie Georgopulos
Debbie Martin's “Free Your Voice” workshop did, indeed, free me in ways I never, ever expected. I felt as though a vital breeze had blown through me and cleansed me of some issues that had blocked my path to becoming my true self for a very long time. – Sally Cecil
I am forever changed for the better for this experience. I thought this workshop was simply a "singing fear" type workshop - but boy was I wrong. This one blew my mind and heart wide open - in the best possible way. –Shannon Pinkston
The biggest thing I gained was a deep awareness of how my voice matters...how it has the power to create joy, passion, and love in this very minute...which flows out causing a ripple effect all around me...even further out than I will ever realize. I am having so much fun being heard these days! -Kim Worthington
The Free Your Voice Workshop series was a powerful experience. When I signed up for the workshop, I wanted to develop my ability to sing as well as to build confidence and overcome fear. What I left with was so much more than I ever expected. –Cyndee Young
