Free ATM #21: Coordinating a Powerful Pelvis

Once you get over the weirdness/comedy of squeezing your buttocks for 20 minutes, I guarantee you will love this lesson.  Get yourself a powerful pelvis!

Free ATM #10: Harmony of the Spine

Ten lessons seems a bit of a landmark under the current circumstances.  This one looks at harmonising the movement of the different parts of the spine.  It’s done in sitting, so you’ll need a chair. Enjoy giving your spine some love.

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 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!
