Immerse Yourself
in Awareness Through Movement 

Feldenkrais Class

The Feldenkrais Institute is pleased to bring you a unique opportunity to experience the cumulative, transformative power of doing multiple ATMs day after day.  In less than two weeks, on July 5th, we'll begin our first Four-Day ATM Summer Intensive co-taught by Feldenkrais Institute co-founders, David Zemach-Bersin and Marek Wyszynski.

David recently had an article on the Feldenkrais Method published on the web by "Be Well World." David does a great job of describing, in an engaging, easy-to-grasp way, the benefits of doing Feldenkrais work. You can read the article by clicking here.

All the details on the ATM Summer Intensive are below. I hope to see you there.

All the best,

A Four-Day
Awareness Through Movement


Restore and Rejuvenate in New York City
Thursday through Sunday, July 5th - 8th 
with David Zemach-Bersin & Marek Wyszynski  



The Feldenkrais Method is an exploration and a celebration of our human potential for change, improvement and learning. Over and over again, the Feldenkrais Method demonstrates that there is nothing permanent about even our most ingrained habits. Dr. Feldenkrais designed Awareness Through Movement lessons to use the plasticity of our brain to facilitate the improvement of every imaginable aspect of our body's function and comfort. This special Summer ATM Intensive will feature powerful lessons, which will provide you with an opportunity to achieve real and lasting change. Even for those of us who are experienced, the relief and improvement that we realize after doing an ATM can be lost when we return to our busy lives. This problem is solved if we allow ourselves a more sustained approach, a deeper 'immersion.'


Each participant in the Summer ATM Intensive will have an opportunity to receive Functional IntegrationSM lessons, before or after class, from our experienced staff at a discounted rate.  You must call 212-727-1014 to book FIs in advance.


For those who live outside the New York City area, the Summer ATM Intensive presents an opportunity to enjoy a restorative and rejuvenating vacation, combining the benefits of doing Feldenkrais during the day, with enjoying the sights and sounds of New York in the afternoon and evening. If you are a resident of New York, the Summer ATM Intensive is an opportunity to treat yourself to a 'staycation' during which you'll fully immerse yourself in the richness of the Feldenkrais Method, improving both your physical comfort, and sense well-being. At the end of this four-day experience, you'll remember what it's like to feel truly different... truly changed... truly better.
