Awareness-Through-Movement Lesson (ATM).
You are guided through a sequence of movements which you are exploring by yourself as you are hearing them in a class or as an audio recording.
The slow and attentive movements which you are following within your own range enable you to understand your movement patterns and to find ways of how to change and reclaim efficient functioning by reorganizing your movement yourself.
There is a wide variety (more than a thousand lessons) to explore functional movements of rolling, sitting, crawling to walking and small steps in-between.
Students are often amazed at how quickly and clearly changes happen and the quality of the movement improves.
ATM is non-competitive and self-paced. Changes which can happen during an ATM lesson are increased mobility, ease, strength and stability.
What People Are Saying
“Initially I went to see Susanne to see if the Feldenkrais Method could help me overcome limitations from an injury. I have stayed because I feel that I’m benefitting on many other levels. Each class is a journey of discovery for me and physically and mentally rewarding. I find a chance to laugh at myself and the habits I have developed over the years. I find newer and easier ways to move and my listening, concentration and observation skills have improved too.”
“Met one of your students today at the Douglas swimming pool. I know him from Tango. He said that he thought the F. had really helped his knees which were arthritic and abused from years of tennis playing. I was able to tell him that he looked longer (taller and leaner) as opposed to having lost weight. He was quite pleased to hear that. So I am passing on the positive reaction to you.”
“The aim is a body that is organized to move with minimum effort and maximum efficiency, not through muscular strength but increased consciousness of how it works.”
