Description

In Coordinating Flexors and Extensors, you’re instructed to tilt your legs in the direction of the crossed-over leg. In this series of intertwined lessons, from the beginning of the third year of the San Francisco training, Dr. Feldenkrais explores what happens when you tilt your legs the other way. Combining familiar lessons - “Sawing Arms” and “Spine like a Chain” - with a thread of unique ATMs, this sequence leads to a Judo-inspired surprise ending. Over the course of five mornings, Larry Goldfarb and Anastasi Siotas present a distillation of these intriguing lessons.

Some prior ATM experience is recommended.
