Two Days of Original ATM Lessons!
Awareness Through Movement® lessons are opportunities for self-discovery and growth, first-aid, and embodied education. In this two-day online workshop, David Zemach-Bersin makes abstract concepts clear and concrete with a selection of original ATM lessons that he has created specifically to communicate and transmit key ‘Feldenkraisian’ concepts. In addition to important theoretical and functional ideas, each lesson references the way the brain learns, the synergistic way that the musculature works, and how conference and function can be used to optimize interactions with the nervous system.
In this workshop, David plans to present three or four of these rich lessons each day, paired with an open discussion of the lesson's purpose, origins, function, construction, and Functional Integration applications. An additional post-workshop Q&A session will be included. The lessons range from gentle and internal, to dynamic and expansive.
David says, “I’m really looking forward to this opportunity to share some of my work that I am most proud of; original ATM lessons that respond to our needs as Feldenkrais Teachers! I hope you will find that they clarify, demonstrate, and illuminate, as well as add to your ATM library and your FI repertoire.”
NOTE: This workshop presents new material only! None of the lessons featured in David’s first ATM for Practitioners Only workshop (held in February 2021) will be repeated in this stand-alone event.
