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.
Read This First: Exploring studying Awareness Through Movement (ATM) at home for the first time with our online class recordings? Read this first!
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 homework time, 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.
[3/3/19 launch update, restoring this soon!: My 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!]
