Awareness While Bending the Leg

Awareness While Bending the Leg begins with a standing scan, but most of the lesson is done lying on the floor. This lesson is extremely subtle and it always surprises me the strong positive reactions that I hear from students after teaching it.

This version of the lesson was taught in June 2016, at my Saturday morning class. Several people came up to me after, to tell me how important the lesson had been for them. One asked me what it was called, which left me a little flummoxed, as I hadn’t yet come up with Awareness While Bending the Leg. In the original lesson, Dr. Feldenkrais uses the term tanden.
