This is the first of 4 short films made by Andrew Dawson for the Feldenkrais Guild UK® to promote awareness of the Feldenkrais Method®. This first film focuses on a group awareness through movement (ATM) lesson.
International Feldenkrais Trainer, Russell Delman, offers an overview of The Feldenkrais Method and a tribute to Moshe Feldenkrais. Mr. Delman explains why The Feldenkrais Method is the most effective way to break up compulsive patterns and promote the evolution of human functioning.
An educational system of neuromuscular re-education known for its gentle approach, the Feldenkrais Method has been shown to dramatically improve individual functioning by increasing self-awareness and facilitating new patterns of thinking, moving, and feeling.
Join me as I guide you through the essential start of a Feldenkrais lesson. This is often done lying on the floor, but it can also be done standing or sitting. In this case the floor acts as a mirror and can provide you with a greater sense of your own physical self.
