Healthy children move freely, without thought. As adults, we often forget this freedom. In this two-hour workshop, you’ll investigate the roots of strength and core ability, and re-connect with your potential to move freely.

 You’ll get tools to re-discover:

  • skeletal support
  • your connection with the ground
  • how your breath can better support movement
WHAT PARTICIPANTS HAVE SAID
“It’s about gently introducing new possibilities for movement and listening to what your body tells you. After my first class I felt like a huge weight had been lifted. It was like a preview of how I could feel if life continued moving in this direction. It felt like joy.” — Sam Damask, musician
 
“Thank you so much for a most stimulating, enlivening, enlightening and totally fun afternoon!”— Linda Kemp
 
Awareness Through Movement® (ATM®) offers a unique, profound way to examine and change your habitual and often limiting patterns of moving. You learn most movement practices from the outside in, by imitation. In ATM, you’re invited to learn from the inside out. Then take your discoveries into another movement practice or your everyday life.
 
ATM is the group version of the Feldenkrais Method®. Pioneered by Israeli physicist/engineer/martial artist Moshe Feldenkrais, D.Sc., the Method offers a unique, profound way to examine and change your habitual and often limiting ways of moving. By attending to how you move, you’ll discover how to improve the quality of your movement. The building blocks of Feldenkrais are physics, biomechanics, and neuroscience.
