About the course
We will go deep into our structure and skeleton knowledge, through a few simple movements, arranged in a sequence (ATM ‘awareness through movement’) that will cause changes in our breath and range of movement.
Reducing the effort, we will focus on the quality of how a movement is performed rather than on the movement itself, its form. This practice is a challenge to keep us into the here and now of our experience paying attention to ourselves within action.
The aim of this learning gained through experience is to find a new organization for the action that allows us to move with more ease and lightness. This method expands the possibilities of movement from a pleasant practice that helps us reduce tension and release possible pain or discomfort. In this work of self-awareness, the teacher guide students verbally through a sequence of simple functional movements, giving everyone the chance to explore and investigate movements at its own pace.
“Through awareness we can learn to move with impressive freedom and lightness” Moshe Feldenkrais
