Awareness Through Movement (ATM) Classes
I’m afraid that I’m taking a little break from teaching my Awareness Through Movement class. Do sign up on my mailing list to hear about workshops.
I am however teaching one to one functional integration lessons at home in Hemel Hempstead and, having completed a course in Manual Therapy for voice disorders with Walt Fritz, can incorporate this for anyone with voice problems. This is very gentle work with the larynx, tongue and jaw and I’m excited to be incorporating it into my Feldenkrais Practice.
Well Musician Workshop with Niall O’Riordan and Emma Alter coming up soon. Seee below.
Do email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to book me for a workshop.
Saturday 26th & Sunday 27th March
2pm – 4:30pm and 5:30pm – 8pm GMT
(9am – 11:30am and 12:30 – 3pm EST)
We’ll be looking at connections between Breathing and Balance in this 2 day intensive Feldenkrais course.
We’d expect that by the end of the two days you would:
- Breathe more fully, openly and easily
- Be able to sense yourself more clearly
- Feel more centred, and balanced
- Have greater understanding of your anatomy
- Reduce musculo-skeletal pain
As you clarify your self image you’ll improve your self-use, ease of movement and music making.
We often limit our breathing in order to feel comfortable, or safer, but it can have the effect of making us in turn feel more constrained, tight, and less sensitive to gravity, and how we can feel support from the world underneath us.
Over the two days, we’ll be looking at the connections of movements of breathing, with the skeletal geography, and finding strength from the floor.
The workshop is suitable for professional musicians (instrumentalists and singers), music students and amateur musicians who want to improve their ease of playing and performing. The sessions will be practical and interactive, leaving time time for discussion and questions.
International Awareness Week ran from May 6th-13th
Feldenkrais Resources for Musicians gave free classes every day on themes relevant to musicians. You can find all the recordings here on the frfm.co.uk website.
My Lewes, East Sussex, workshop has been postponed. I will put details here when I have them.

The Feldenkrais Method is an educational method, not a medical system or therapy. We do not attempt to diagnose, treat or cure any disease or injury.
Learning in a practical way about the relationship between your movement, efficiency and comfort, you may become more able to understand the effects of your movement habits & find strategies for changing them. With practice, more able to direct yourself away from patterns of movement that cause pain, strain or discomfort.
We assist you in learning through verbal direction and you moving yourself in response. When we direct your movement verbally we make every effort to help and remind you to stay within a range of movement that is safe and comfortable for you
It is your responsibility to move and direct yourself in a safe way that does not create discomfort, and stay in a easy and comfortable range of movement, in order to remain in a learning environment.
