Awareness Through Movement® lessons are a process or practice of embodied learning as part of the Feldenkrais Method.
Students are guided through a sequence of gentle movements, done slowly in a comfortable range of motion. With uniquely focused attention, students can become aware of unexpected and interesting connections within and between the movements. Continued practice can improve mobility, flexibility, balance, quality, ease and range of movement while eliminating unnecessary muscular strain, improve overall wellbeing and create a unique inner stillness. Students are often amazed at the quick and clear changes that occur through the neuromuscular repatterning (neuroplasticity) demonstrated in this practice.
These lessons tie directly into functional movements of daily life, such as walking efficiently, safely lifting objects, and improving one’s posture in sitting or standing.
