Do you use your abdominals in ordinary actions? How about in Awareness Through Movement® lessons? Are your abdominals helping your movement? Are they too lax, or too tight? Is there confusion about the use of your abdominals?

Moshe Feldenkrais was clear and precise in his lessons about using the abdominal muscles appropriately and in a balanced way.

This series of Feldenkrais® Awareness Through Movement lessons will explore this core system of support: coordinating the action of the abdominals, the pelvic floor, the deep muscles of the spine.

Overuse or underuse of one aspect of this core system leads to movement dysfunction, breathing difficulties, and can lead to pain and injury.

Research shows that the abdominals contract milliseconds before any use of the arms and legs. The abdominals are essential to support one’s posture, spine, and to have powerful action. It’s about appropriate use of the system of support.

These novel movement explorations are appropriate for everyone and draw from the full curriculum of Feldenkrais’ work.
