Awareness Through Movement® with Massimo Galli

In Awareness Through Movement lessons, students engage in precisely structured movement explorations. Unlike Functional Integration lessons which are taught to a single student using touch, ATM lessons are taught through verbal instructions given to one or more students. Each lesson consists of comfortable, easy movements that gradually evolve into movements of greater range and complexity. Awareness Through Movement lessons attempt to make students aware of their habitual neuromuscular patterns and rigidities and to expand options for choosing new and more functional ways of moving.
During his lifetime, Moshe Feldenkrais taught more than one thousand unique ATM lessons. The types of movements used in ATM are therefore extremely diverse. The difficulty and complexity of lessons vary widely, covering all levels of movement ability.
