Feldenkrais Awareness through Movement® - A Somatosensory Learning Platform
With Becky Behling
Thursdays 12-1pm
January 24-Feb 28


Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais developed hundreds of Awareness Through Movement® (ATM) lessons. These are precisely structured, gentle explorations involving thinking, sensing, moving, and imagining. People of all ages and abilities may benefit from these novel lessons by focusing on how they organize, sequence, and produce movement. As awareness of habitual movement patterns and rigidities increases, students experience neuromuscular reorganization evidenced by improved sensitivity and efficiency.

Wear comfortable, layered clothing. Bring a mat, quilt, or blanket to be comfortable lying on the floor. Also bring bath towels and/or small pillows for head support.

Becky Behling is a student teacher of Awareness Through Movement® lessons, and approved by the Feldenkrais Guild of North America to teach ATM lessons.
