    Dr. Feldenkrais left us over one thousand Awareness Through Movement® lessons to investigate and learn from. Each one functions as a blueprint for optimizing human action. It is vital for us—as Feldenkrais® Practitioners—to have a clear image of what ‘ideal’ body organization might look like, and its potential for improving action. Dr. Feldenkrais used an imagined human ideal as a means to initiate the direction of his investigation with himself and with every student he worked with, and when he was creating his Awareness Through Movement lessons.

    Knowledge of anatomy can help us to formulate images of ideal functional organization, and guide us in improving the quality and efficiency of our movement.

    This Dynamic Anatomy workshop offers a functional and kinesthetic exploration of the musculoskeletal system in relation to Awareness Through Movement lessons. Together, we will deconstruct one lesson, examining how each configuration of the body creates constraints and highlights relationships that can help us to improve function and action. To understand the potency of these constraints, we will examine the ways in which the lesson organizes our skeleton to effect the transmission of muscular force. In addition, we will explore the neuromuscular synergies in the lesson that contribute to improved coordination, flexibility and reduced effort. Studying a lesson in this manner will help you to understand the strategic logic of all Awareness Through Movement lessons.

    “Anastasi’s unusual background in cell biology, dance and motor learning has afforded him a unique perspective as a movement teacher. As a scientist, he is able to question, analyze and consider the evidence at hand rigorously and systematically. As a learning specialist, he is able to see the unique structure, strategies and conditions of the person he is observing. As a dancer/artist, he is able to kinesthetically understand the other person and to create new strategies in movement that enhance that other person’s functional capacities. Having taught thousands of dancers, teachers and movement educators over the years, I can confidently say that Anastasi is extraordinarily gifted and able in his field.”
    – Irene Dowd • Anatomist, Author and Choreographer
