Awareness Through Movement (ATM) classes and workshops were developed by Dr. Moshe Feldenkriais (1904 -1984). Feldenkrais used his method of group ATM classes to teach people how to move and use their bodies more intelligently. ViVi Therapy offers various Feldenkrais Classes & Workshops including a series of workshops designed specifically for RMTs and other hands on body workers where CEU’s are offered. Learn more about our continuing education workshops here.
Benefits from taking our Feldenkrais Classes or Workshops:
- Learn to improve your walk so that when you want to running is possible.
- Feel how transmitting power through your skeleton offers you options of less effort and strain in your daily activities and workouts.
- Discover ways to defend your body using the force of gravity to build bone strength and agility.
- Learn the core exercises you really need to have good posture, avoid back pain and move more freely.
Our Awareness Through Movement Feldenkrais classes or workshops relate to developing and enhancing movement possibilities such as spinal rotation, turning the head and lifting the trunk while lengthening the spine. They help develop awareness of the relationship between the pelvis, head and shoulders while enhancing use of the thoracic core. Students experience an increased flexibility through the spine and neck and develop an appreciation for their own skeletal power.
A perfect example of unnecessary strain placed on your body is the process of texting on your cell phone. Are you practicing safe text? The first in our series of workshops will address this issue looking at neck and shoulder pain, headaches and forward head posture and what you can do about them on a daily basis. Learn to practice safe text! Learn about yourself and your movements so you are not at the mercy of weekly therapy to keep you pain free. Avoid the long term effects of text neck now.

As Moshe Feldenkrais said,
“Movement is life, life without movement is unthinkable.”
