We maintain our equilibrium -from one moment to the next- by keeping our center of mass over our base of support via the physiological action of spontaneous oppositional movement.

As one part of our self moves forward, another part moves backward. This dynamic is so crucial to healthy, well-organized movement, that when our counter-balancing mechanisms are inhibited, stress is placed on the musculature, and comfort and ease of movement are compromised.

This workshop for Feldenkrais practitioners will explore how to use Awareness Through Movement and Functional Integration to evoke the re-organizing effect of oppositional movement. Participants will regain access to their own endowment of counterbalance within action, and learn how to use the same principles to increase the potency of their Functional Integration lessons.

Curious? Try this FREE ATM® lesson! Basic Oppositional Movement Sitting on a Roller was originally taught at the 2019 in-person Oppositional Movement workshop.

Open to Feldenkrais practitioners, plus 3&4 year trainees

Registration includes:

  • 25% discount on one Feldenkrais Access on-demand program
  • Unlimited access to recordings through your Feldenkrais Access library
  • Option to download recordings

Scholarships available.

“…good coordination demands that the movement of the limbs in one direction will be balanced by a part that goes in the opposite direction. The part that goes opposite is heavier, larger.

The movement is smaller and almost not seen by the eye.”

– Moshe Feldenkrais
