Free ATM #8: Tilting the Right Knee

Awareness Through Movement number 8 for those of you on lockdown.  I’m really starting to miss my climbing gym and dojo, but I’m appreciating all the online content available.  I hope these lessons are providing a little bit of solace for people.

Free ATM #7: Exploring the Movement of the Right Eye

A little later than normal, here’s the 7th Awareness Through Movement lesson I’ve recorded while we’re all stuck inside.  This one explores the movement of the right eye.  Even though we’re not allowed outside, there’s plenty to explore in our own heads!

Free ATM #6: Drawing on the ceiling with your hands and feet

Another short Awareness Through Movement lesson for you to play with.   Like #5 this is one that you could do with your kids or on your own.  Have fun.

(16 minutes.)

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 #3: Finding the Centre

I recorded another quick Awareness Through Movement lesson for people stuck inside.  This one is about feeling centred and stable when standing.

Hope it helps pass the time and keeps you sane.

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!

Free Feldenkrais ATM Lesson

All my face-to-face classes have been cancelled, so I recorded a quick ATM for people who are stuck inside.  It focuses on the movement of the ribs, belly and diaphragm during breathing.

The recording is a little rough. It was recorded on Garage Band this afternoon.  Let me know what you think. I’ll try to do another tomorrow.

What do we teach when we teach physical theatre?

I wrote a short piece for Theatre, Dance and Performance Training about the trouble with defining physical theatre during teaching.
