You can read more about ideas mentioned in this talk and Lesson 2 in a post I wrote called About Dynamic Sitting, including the planes of movement mentioned in the lesson.

For more about skeletal awareness, read Nick’s blog post called My Bones Are Alive! (but please complete our Getting Oriented lessons first, before going on to the lessons linked in the blog post).

This audio recording is found in Getting Oriented, our introductory collection of Feldenkrais basics for newcomers (and longtimers looking for a “tune-up”).

This lesson was recorded in an introductory workshop called Move Smarter, Safer, and Stronger with Feldenkrais: Back to Basics.

Feldenkrais Project Patrons can listen to Getting Oriented tracks 1-4, the Back to Basics talks and lessons, without interruption as a 70-minute workshop recording.
