About our Awareness Through Movement® (ATM) classes
These classes consist of slow and mindful movement sequences done on a padded surface on the floor, from the comfort of your own home. This approach lends itself well to an online format because you don’t need to watch or copy a teacher. Rather, you listen to gentle instructions and cues as you explore your own comfortable range of movement.
For these online classes, you need an area on the floor in your home where you can move comfortably. This can be on a carpet, blanket, or exercise mat. You need to position your device’s camera (computer, phone, tablet) so that your movement area is visible.
Why take an ATM class?
There are countless reasons and benefits, and these are our favorites:
- Meditation and mindfulness: A means to practice mindfulness through gentle movement explorations that deepen awareness of your body and breath.
- Pleasure: Movement lessons that interest your brain, open new neural pathways and bring about pleasurable sensations.
- Reduce stress, tension, and pain: The movement sequences and guided attention allow you to release habitual and even unconscious habits of muscular tension that do not serve you.
- Freedom of movement: Each lesson helps you discover new flexibility, grace, and alignment which carries through to all of your daily activities (including work, play, sitting, standing, and walking with ease).
