The crux of martial arts

From the center - Mind in Motion

We just added the Awareness Through Movement® sequence Moving from Your Center to the Mind in Motion Online Shop. Until now, these lessons were only available to the folks who’d participated in The Bodywise Project last year.

Inspired by Moshe Feldenkrais’ curriculum for the second year of the San Francisco teacher training, this program presents these rarely taught and profoundly transformative lessons in an accessible, user-friendly format. To read more about this series’ background, please look at my earlier post about it, Finding center

The Moving from Your Center digital collection includes the 14 classes from the course, four bonus ATMs, and a new capstone composition to integrate the skills and themes developed in the program. This comprehensive collection is about getting to know and learning to efficiently coordinate the large muscles that connect your spine, chest, pelvis, and legs. 

Based on Feldenkrais’ deep understanding of Judo, engineering, and the biomechanics of optimal human motion, this program can be the key to undoing the persistent patterns that cause or contribute to back problems and injuries, limit performance, and make life less pleasant. 

MFYC provides a step-by-step path to developing the ability at the crux of every martial art. These lessons allow you to experience your potential to:

  • Connect with your core.

  • Alter unconscious habits, release long-held muscle tension, and transform how you move.

  • Revitalize your self-image and enhance your kinesthetic sense.

  • Develop inner balance and strength.

  • Shift the locus of attention from behind your eyes to deep within the pelvis.

  • Improve the ease and fullness of breathing.

  • Discover your capacity for integrated, potent action.
