The Feldenkrais Method – Two Ways of Learning
Awareness Through Movement® (ATM™)
In Awareness Through Movement classes, people engage in precisely-structured movement explorations that involve thinking, sensing, moving and imagining. Each lesson consists of comfortable, easy movements that gradually evolve into movements of greater range and complexity.
ATM lessons increase awareness of habitual neuromuscular patterns and rigidities, and expand options for choosing new ways of moving. There are hundreds of Awareness Through Movement lessons in the Feldenkrais Method. They are suitable for all levels of movement ability, from simple in structure and physical demand to very complex and challenging.
Here are two online resources with ATM lessons you can listen to online or download for free:
Functional Integration® (FI™) Lessons
Functional Integration is another aspect the Feldenkrais Method. Practitioners guide people through movement patterns with gentle, non-invasive touch and words. These are private lessons that address specific concerns of a student.
