Ruth Anne is the author of Respecting Babies: A New Look at Magda Gerber’s RIE Approach (2009, Zero to Three). She was head of the Pacific Oaks Infant/Toddler-Parent program from 1996-2013, and conducts courses and trainings for parents, caregivers and other professionals. Her RIE® Parent-Infant Guidance Classes™ based on Magda Gerber’s respectful Educaring™ Approach offer a unique opportunity for parents, with their babies and toddlers, to come together with other like-minded families to learn how to apply the Educaring Approach®. Gaining confidence as parents and trust in their babies as competent and intelligent, if immature, persons, parents often say these weekly classes are the most enriching, enjoyable and peaceful 90 minutes of their week.

10:45-Feldenkrais Awareness through Movement
Groundwork at East Village Yoga: Start with pilates mat work as a template and layer with the awareness of Feldenkrais® to clarify and refine the use of self. Keeping a slow and easy pace and reducing effrt allows you to recognize habits and favorings that restrict movement and create tension, imbalance and discomfort in your body. Rather than gripping muscles and efforting, you become able to access the body’s natural abilities to move in a more responsive manner and adapt easily as needed. Functional strength, suppleness and a much greater sense of well-being are the result.
This class is taught by Diane Park, Guild Certified Feldenkrais® Practitioner, as well as a
pilates instructor with over 25 years of teaching experience. Her years as a professional dancer put her on a path to seek out methods that would help maintain an optimal level of fitness and agility while minimizing injuries. Her Groundwork class, a blending of pilates and Feldenkrais®, provides the opportunity for developing improved
body awareness, functional strength and flexibility.
The rate for my classes is $20 for a single class and $160 for a series of 10 classes.
Please contact Diane with any questions, or to sign up for the class:
