"After 50 years studying the Feldenkrais Method, I propose that one of the most functionally effective and generative positions to work with--in both Awareness Through Movement and Functional Integration--is prone; lying on the stomach." ~DZB
As infants, it is essential that we spend time on our stomachs, exploring sensory-motor strategies that we have in common with our reptilian ancestors. This is a critical period in our development, a time in which many of our most essential abilities are learned and developed, including; the orientation of our head and neck, directionality, eye coordination, anti-gravity functions, coordination of the flexors and extensors, and the abilities that we will eventually assemble into crawling and walking.
Because working in the prone position can yield such extraordinary results and benefit almost every physical difficulty, David taught this ATM-oriented program, sharing the ways in which the foundations of well-organized adult movement emerge and unfold on the stomach.
This on-demand program features some of David's developmentally-rooted ATM lessons, and some profound lessons created by Dr. Feldenkrais. You will learn strategies for helping your students restore their comfort in the prone position and regain access to long-forgotten neural patterns and critical upright anti-gravitational wisdom.
David also addresses how these ideas can be translated into Functional Integration. For this program, he was assisted by Raz Ori and Anastasi Siotas

"I have never felt so totally at one with myself. It reminded me of a beautiful saying I read of Dr Feldenkrais,'in those moments when awareness succeeds in being at one with feelings, emotions, movements and thoughts, the carriage will speed down the right road."
