The Feldenkrais Method – ATM classes in Newland 2018

Nov 30th, 2017 by Bärbel | Comments Off

Awareness Through Movement (ATM) in Bern II

The FELDENKRAIS Method
Awareness Through Movement (ATM)
10 weeks ATM course

Wednesday, 10th January to 13th March 2018
with Feldenkrais Practitioner Bärbel Rücker

The Feldenkrais Method

After 4 years of Feldenkrais Practitioner Training in Switzerland I am a certified Feldenkrais Practitioner and ready to share my knowledge about this amazing method.

The Feldenkrais Method® lets you experience your own potential by exploring your body through gentle movements. You can improve your movements and (re)gain comfort and ease.

It is named after its originator, Moshé Feldenkrais (1904-1984), an engineer and physicist as well as a Judo teacher.

“Awareness Through Movement lessons are designed to improve ability, that is, to expand the boundaries of the possible, to turn the impossible into the possible, the difficult into the easy and the easy into the pleasant.”
– Moshe Feldenkrais, D.Sc.

These Feldenkrais ATM classes are helpful for you:

  • Relief from tension and muscular pain
  • Easier and fuller breathing
  • Greater relaxation and well-being
  • Improved performance in sport, dance, music and drama
  • Greater ease in everyday activities
  • Increased vitality

On Sunday 3rd December, you’ll have the chance to check if The Feldenkrais Method has something to offer you!

You don’t need to bring a partner to attend Feldenkrais group classes (ATM = Awareness Through Movement) .

These ATM classes are non-strenuous and suitable for all ages.

Please feel free to come along.

For the highest benefit I recommend taking the full course. If you prefer a more flexible approach the ATM classes are available as drop-in classes too.
