FREE Audio ATM lessons

Make your space so that you can lay on your back to start with - but have handy a folded towel or two to use as a head rest when on your side.


The Golden Keys of any Awareness Through Movement lesson are: Move with a minimum of effort - Pay Attention to your sensory experience - Seek smooth, light and easy movement and above all, Don't do Anything that Hurts (its simply not productive here) - and, Rest often.


Usually lessons begin with a few moments of laying on your back, so you should do this before you start - it is called a Scan, and is included in this first lesson.


Please note: these lessons are just samples, they are short recordings of live teachings and as such are not necessarily complete.

We provide audio recordings only as is traditional in The Feldenkrais Method. Every person is unique, the benefit is in the exploration and not in imitation of how another person does it.

Mistakes are an important part of any learning process.

"I don't demonstrate because it is important that a person understands, feels, does, judges, compares - and is their own judge and their own master. You are not going to learn from me - you are going to learn from yourself and I provide those conditions" Dr Moshe Feldenkrais, Amherst, 9 June 1980.
