Awareness Through Movement® Class
Enhance your full potential for precision, power, and spontaneity in swimming, biking and running with the Feldenkrais Method’s Awareness Through Movement® (ATM) lessons. Dr. Feldenkrais recognized the brain as the core of movement and developed his lessons to guide you to greater effectiveness in all that you do. Since lessons are process oriented and not goal directed, the quiet and soft gestures of ATM®s coax the brain to evoke new patterns of action in an organic manner. As your awareness increases, unnecessary effort is identified and released so positive shifts in emotional and thinking patterns can emerge. With its attention to small details, the Feldenkrais Method® ultimately affects the entire body. Learning is at your own pace in a non-judgmental environment. ATMs access the intelligence of neuromuscular system to improve your flexibility, balance, coordination, and grace by enhancing your awareness of how you organize and sequence movement. You could think of it as brain-generated kinesio tape internally applied.
