The lessons offered in the Live Recordings portion of the Embodied Wellness Membership offer an expanded experience.
Most of the lessons offered in the Embodied Wellness Membership are studio quality. They were designed with your home practice in mind. Which means, they are often a bit shorter in length and are accompanied by at least two Attune To Awareness Practices.
However, we've had some requests to record an audio version of our live classes. We thought this was a good idea for a few reasons.
- First, every time a class is taught, it is adapted to the people attending. So, with every lesson, there are many variations. This offers you a unique opportunity to explore the same lesson with a twist.
- Our "Mondays With Moshe" classes are only taught and recorded live. So, this portion of the membership gives you access to all of the wonderful lessons we explore there.
- Many of our guest teachers chose to share recordings that they created during a live class or workshop. So, this is a wonderful space to share those recordings with you!
You'll find that the Awareness Through Movement® lessons that were recorded live tend to be a bit longer — with an average length of 40-55 min. You'll also notice that each series may vary in the number of lessons that they contain. We hope that you enjoy this section as much as we do!
As always, the lessons are not recipes for "correct" movement, they do not tell you how to breathe or walk, sit or stand. They teach you how to become your own best expert on what's appropriate and efficient for you, and to deepen your awareness. Over time, you'll develop your ability to consciously perceive how you move and how to quickly let go of excess effort & unnecessary tension. These skills and knowledge will allow you to develop new and effortless movements.
I guarantee that if you continue to explore your Movement & Mindfulness practices, you will tap into a sense of ease and power that goes far beyond what you have ever imagined!
The Monday With Moshe Awareness Through Movement® classes are based on transcripts of classes and workshops that Moshe Feldenkrais taught to the general public. We'll explore lessons that Moshe taught over the radio or at one of his many public workshops. We'll also gradually work our way through the 550 Alexander Yanai lessons.
Although these lessons will follow the themes and structure of Moshe's teachings, they will be guided by what arises during class and influenced by your Feldenkrais Practitioner's personal experience.
You'll find that a lot of Feldenkrais Practitioners® prefer to record live lessons. We look forward to growing this aspect of our Membership. Most of these Awareness Through Movement® lessons will range from 40-60 minutes. Nearly all of the lessons will be offered as part of a theme or series.
We look forward to growing this aspect of the membership! Our vision is to create a space for you to experience Feldenkrais teachings from around the world!
