Awareness Through Movement Lesson: Foot in the Hand, Lying on the Back by Moshe Feldenkrais

As far as I know this Awareness Through Movement lesson (ATM) is the only complete lesson spoken in German by Dr. Feldenkrais himself. In all likelihood the text was authored by Feldenkrais‘ close friend and German translator Franz Wurm.

The ATM starts relatively easily, but the level of difficulty increases towards the end, so that even experienced Feldenkrais practitioners might find it challenging. If you have little or no experience of Feldenkrais lessons, allow yourself ample time for pauses and do not feel obliged to complete the lesson.


Awareness Through Movement Lesson: Freeing the Left Shoulder and Hip. 21 May, 1973 by Moshe Feldenkrais

This Awareness Through Movement lesson (ATM) was recorded in Paris at the Dolto’s (Françoise Dolto was a renowned pediatrician and psychoanalyst). The lesson is done lying on the side and does not pose any problem for beginners. However, the rhythm of this ATM is rather fast and Dr. Feldenkrais does not give you much time for pauses. Don’t hesitate to stop the recording and give yourself time to rest whenever you need it.
