Kata of the Five Winds: An Advanced Training, with Stephen Rosenholtz

ATM Workshop Series - For Practitioners


ADVANCED TRAINING 2021


"But first let's ask: what is a small difference, and how can you tell?" ~Moshe Feldenkrais


The Kata of the Five Winds

With Stephen Rosenholtz

The Five Winds Kata lessons were taught by Moshe in the San Francisco training. Kata in Japanese means "form," a form that is practiced. The ATM lessons, with origins in martial arts, revolve around the ability to go from lying down to sitting without bending the body or using the arms to push. These interesting lessons differentiate and enhance our awareness and our ability to produce actions using the strongest muscles in our center.

Moshe, in an interview talking about chi, or ki, the energy centers in Chinese and Japanese martial arts, said:

“It is a complex appreciation of how a human body is made, how it works: that it has a head that must not be involved in movement but must be free, whatever the movement, to move anywhere and that the lower part, the abdomen, must be in such a state that it can do all the things it needs without disturbing the head."

Kata lessons relate to our ability to improve in this direction, to find the power in our center.

Stephen recently taught this ATM series in a multi-continent Advanced Training for Spanish-speaking practitioners. We are pleased to be able to offer it now in English. These lessons are rarely taught and generally poorly understood in the practitioner community. This is a chance to study them with an experienced teacher in the company of your peers.

The Series:

Eight one-hour ATM lessons, which take place on Monday, Wednesday and Friday:
From Monday, April 19 through Wednesday, May 5.

There will be a few minutes for questions after each class, and time for longer discussions each Friday and on the last day of the series, Wednesday, May 5.

Participants can follow the course live or through recordings. Links for the audio recordings will be available the next day.

Time:

11 a.m. PDT; 2 p.m. EDT; 7 p.m. BST; 8 p.m. CEST

Cost: 

$195 if registered by April 6. $225 thereafter. Class size will be limited, so if you would like to participate register soon.


This workshop is now sold out. If you would be interested in attending this course in the future let us know at: office@Feldenkraisresources.com.

We are considering another group in the fall as the response has been so positive. Thank you!

A special opportunity for Feldenkrais teachers

Join Us! A Practitioner-Focused ATM Workshop Series ~ Taught by Highly Experienced European Teachers


Dear Colleagues,

I am very pleased to announce a series of ATM workshops crafted exclusively for practitioners (see below). The six teachers all live and work in Europe and over decades of practice have each developed their own voice. Now that so many of us are spending more time at home, this seems like a great moment to “bring” these European teachers directly to you, many of whom you may otherwise rarely have encountered. They have active, successful and varied practices and will bring their unique handwriting to the event. It's a chance to nourish your ATM teaching with new perspectives from other branches of our Feldenkrais tree.

Wishing you healthy living and learning as you transition into the New Year!

Warmly, Elizabeth Beringer


It’s About Something and Everything...

An ATM is about something, and at the same time it can be taught in such a myriad of ways that seemingly endless dimensions can be discovered. This can lead us eventually to anything and everything! It can get tiring to put a one sentence theme on the boundless riches of ATM, so given that we're all practitioners, we won't. Come join these skillful teachers in an ongoing conversation through movement. Each workshop will include a rich menu of ATM and reflections on various aspects of ATM teaching. One meeting is scheduled per month starting in January. Each teacher will pick up themes from the prior month's workshop and take them in new directions as we move into and through this New Year. Each workshop will be four hours long, with a number of short breaks. The recordings will be available for streaming if you have to miss all or part of the day.

This course is open only to Feldenkrais practitioners.

Already living in Munich, Germany, she collaborated with John Graham and for several years, they led “Gentle Dance” workshops together throughout Europe.

In 1988, she became an assistant trainer and in 1994, she became one of the first Europe-based trainers. Over the years, she has played a crucial role in the formation of the international Feldenkrais community, having been a founding member of the International Feldenkrais Federation and of the European Training Accreditation Board.

She has been actively involved in the Method since then, teaching worldwide, researching Moshe’s biography and most recently coauthored the book, The Feldenkrais Method for Executive Coaches, Managers and Business Leaders: Moving in All Directions.
