Description

In this workshop, participants will understand the motor learning processes in Awareness Through Movement® lessons. We will ‘unpack’ these lessons to demonstrate how current movement science concepts, such as exploratory learning and variable practice, are an intrinsic part of every Feldenkrais® lesson. These insights into the learning process will enable you to describe your work to clients and other professionals. Non-Feldenkrais practitioners and scientists will recognize that the Feldenkrais Method is congruent with current thinking in movement science. By participating in ATM® lessons, they can discover through subjective experience how habitual movement patterns can be explored and changed.

This workshop is intended for a professional audience. Professionals are individuals trained in disciplines relating to human development (such as teachers or other educators, psychologists and psychotherapists), in performance (including sports and the arts), and health care. Professionals include practitioners, researchers and administrators in these fields.
