Free ATM #5: Lifting the hands and feet on all-fours

An Awareness Through Movement lesson that’s good for all ages.  This one is about balancing the muscles of the back and abdomen in order to carry the arms and legs.

Presented with help from my trusty assistant Lila.

Free ATM #4: Imagining the Movement of the Right Lung

Another Awareness Through Movement lesson for you to play with:

This is the sort of lesson that made me fall in love with the Feldenkrais Method.  It is guaranteed to make you feel groovy.

Free ATM Lesson #2: Lifting the head

I’ve recorded another short Awareness Through Movement lesson for those of us practising social distancing or self-isolating.

This one continues the theme of yesterday’s lesson – movement of the ribcage.  It focuses on lifting the head while lying on the back and lying on the side.

Note: I didn’t repeat the instruction to stand the feet while lying on you back and lifting your heard.  So please remember to bring your feet up to stand after you’ve rested.

I also should have said bring your elbows towards each other, not together.  They just need to point in the general direction of the ceiling, they don’t need to touch together.

I’m still learning how to teach these lessons without having feedback from students in front of me.  I hope it’s clear enough.  I’ve certainly had my fair share of confusion while listening to audio recordings of ATMs – even from Feldenkrais himself!
