We didn't quite make it to the advanced opening, but yet, we did so much! Here are a couple of approximations of the Awareness Through Movement lesson. Audio is below!
"The Nervous System is self-organizing, which means that it does not need to be corrected, but rather fed lots of different options. So it can organize well. So we can organize well. And we do that by sensing the differences and by trying many many ways...."
Use the introductory time to settle (it takes a while to settle into the floor).
We are process oriented, being here in a resourceful way.... Use this time on the floor to clarify your self-image, be with yourself gently, and approach your learning as a kind and supportive teacher for yourself.
This is a fusion of two ATM lessons. Please read the HOW TO to the right.
Lessons that focus on the breath can offer us systematic changes that may seem unrelated to the focus of the lesson. Here, you'll work with some movement, and some breath--focused on the sensations that emerge in various positions. Trying on different ways of moving and breathing can help our nervous systems adapt and respond to the moment, with new and detailed information that we feed our brains through the power of our attention!
