The lessons in this collection are available for our Patrons-level donors only, but everyone can see their titles and descriptions below. (Click here to learn about Member-level and Patron-level “thank you” benefits for donors.) The Feldenkrais Project is a living collection of lessons. From time to time I replace a Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement (ATM) lesson with a new recording or edit, based on feedback from the listener community and refinements in my understanding and teaching of the Feldenkrais Method. Newer isn't necessarily better for everyone, and listener feedback has taught me that some people prefer the teaching and variations used in the older versions. Others just like to have additional ways to explore a lesson.

So when I do replace a lesson, the previous version will find a home here, available for Patrons to stream any time. These lessons are not available for download.

There's no particular learning order to this collection, so follow your curiosity! If a lesson isn't comfortable initially, try another and return to it later.

Descriptions of each lesson give you a sense of its aim, though everyone's learning process is unique and you may find other benefits.

Improving Pelvic Floor Control and Ease (Patrons)

Mostly back-lying, framed by chair-seated. Begins with identifying the four skeletal landmarks of the diamond-shaped pelvic floor. Discover more pelvic floor awareness, control, and ease by learning how contractions of the anus, urethra, and other parts of pelvic floor are connected to movements of the pelvis, spine, and legs. May be very helpful if you have concerns about continence, digestion and elimination, or sexual function, and also typically benefits breath, balance, and walking.

Returning to favorite lessons will yield new insights. It can be very surprising to new Feldenkrais students how lessons you "know" are a completely different, valuable experience on subsequent explorations.
