An overseas student comes back to Feldenkrais basics

Ever wrestle with an ATM lesson that seemed impossible, only to later discover something new and wonderful? I enjoyed an email exchange with Maria Noel from Uruguay, who was struggling with one of my more challenging audio lessons, Legs Crossed, Freeing the Spine and Chest Part 1. She gave me permission to share our thread.

Notice I initially gave her a firm nudge toward simply not doing the lesson (safety first!) but she persisted in a beautiful, sensitive-to-herself way, and reaped the benefits. Too long, can’t read? Just skip to the bolded sentences below.

For all of us doing ATM lessons I find these kinds of study stories to be a helpful reminder of the value of going back to the Feldenkrais basics. Look what can happen when we explore from a place of kindness and curiosity towards ourselves!

Maria: Very difficult for me to tilt the legs while they are crossed and I do not improve although I have been doing it for a very long time. And impossible to leave them tilted to one side. Read more »

My free audio ATM project turns two today!

Two years, 30 free ATM lessons
(and counting…)

Thank you listeners and donors from around the world!

Back on May 11, 2015 I launched my free streaming audio ATM project as a personal passion project. Sharing the life-changing benefits of the Feldenkrais Method as widely as possible — without paywall or password — is my goal. I love the feeling I get from freely sharing something incredibly valuable to me, as well as the learning opportunities I’ve found while creating and uploading these edited, live-recorded classes.

Just this week I finally presented a satisfying new teaching of an important Feldenkrais “basic training” lesson. I studied, recorded, edited, and uploaded this month’s featured new lesson… Read more in the May edition of the Twin Cities Feldenkrais Newsletter.
