Feldenkrais® is done in two forms:
Awareness through movement® (ATM)- is mostly group approach where practitioner verbally direct movement sequences in basic positions: lying or sitting on the floor, standing or sitting in the chair. Lesson lasts from 30- 60 minutes and it is made of easy and gentle movements that gradually evolve into complex movements of greater range. These precisely structured self explorations of movements include thinking, sensing, moving and imagining.
Functional integration® (FI)- is a private custom tailored lesson where practitioner leads movement through light and gentle touch. Student is completely dressed and lesson is often done on a specially designed table in a lying or sitting position.
It is a form of tactile kinesthetic communication where student gets information about his body organization and how to change it. Lesson is completely individual and adapted to structure, wishes and needs of person in that particular moment.
