The Feldenkrais Method is delivered in two different ways:
- Awareness Through Movement®
- Functional Integration®
Classes called “Awareness Through Movement®” lessons (ATM)
A Feldenkrais practitioner guides the participants through a structured sequence of movement explorations.
Attention is drawn to the process of each movement pattern. Through observing their movements, participants learn easier ways of moving in everyday activities.
Individual lessons called “Functional Integration®” (FI)
FI is a hands-on process which addresses particular individual problem and are tailored to each client’s needs.
The Feldenkrais practitioner guides movements through precise touch. The client lies or sits, comfortably clothed, on a low padded table. The practitioner brings present habits into focus and offers new movement options.
The learning is then applied to everyday activities such as reaching, sitting, standing and walking.
