Become a better, more effective and more successful Awareness Through Movement® teacher

Whether you’re just starting to teach ATM® classes or you’ve been doing it for a while, RETURNING TO THE SOURCE (RTTS) will take your abilities to the next level.

In RTTS, you learn the conceptual tools needed to easily and reliably figure out what’s behind lessons, that is to say, you’ll understand how each ATM makes learning possible and what it has to teach. You also develop the skills required to teach ATM to its full potential.

When you know what’s behind a lesson — what holds it together and what makes it work — you can teach with poise and calm conviction.

When you know what’s behind a lesson, you will:

  • Know what to look for and why.
  • Understand what each ATM has to teach.
  • Better bring out your students’ ability to learn.
  • Improve your observational acuity

RETURNING TO THE SOURCE is comprehensive

Deepen your personal practice and your professional acumen

of the timeless lessons

his method to the world in the book,
Awareness Through Movement, including SEE-SAW BREATHING, DEAD BIRD, and COORDINATING FLEXORS & EXTENSORS, etc.

We learn better when we learn together

1. What is the RTTS Plus One option?

RTTS Plus One allows you to grant a study buddy access to the recordings of each week’s Lesson+Lab and Backstage Pass sessions, audio recordings of previous recordings of the ATM classes and mini-workshops, online school assignments, and forum discussions.

2. Who counts as a study buddy?

You can designate any Feldenkrais colleague who has a MIMO Become a Better Teacher account as your study buddy.

3. Can my Plus One participate in the live sessions?

Only one of you can participate in live sessions. If you can’t make it to a session, your study buddy can take your place.

4. Why are you doing this?

We’re offering the Plus One option because we are committed to fostering communities of learners.
