I've collected here various guides I've written and emailed students over the years. Some are more formally presented; some are simply catch-alls for ideas that my students have found useful as they study and improve. Some include printer-friendly pdf versions.
ATM Class Guide: What is Awareness Through Movement? Written originally for in-person class students about expectations at your first class, and how to do Feldenkrais lessons.
What is the Feldenkrais Method, in more detail?: In response to student questions, I wrote this more scientifically-detailed bullet point description of the method, its background, and the principles of biomechanics, neurology, learning, and human improvement that make it work.
Integrating Feldenkrais learning into everyday life: How to carry the method's self-study and self-improvement principles over into everyday life.
Ideas for ATM Self-Study: A simple list of do's and don'ts for Feldenkrais explorations, whether you're exploring remembered lessons, working from notes, improvising, or using a book or audio or lesson source like the Feldenkrais Project.
Ingredients of Organic Learning (aka Curiosity!): Not just for Feldenkrais study, not just for somatic explorations! An unordered list intended to help you create a safe, fun, and efficient human learning environment for yourself or others. Good reminders for teachers and parents.
My TwinCitiesFeldenkrais.com blog post with an excerpt and introduction to Norman Doidge's The Brain's Way of Healing includes a "study guide" list of eleven core principles of the Feldenkrais Method. Get the wonderful book for more details!
