  • Product Description

    Organized around the theme of improving balance and developing coordination, this comprehensive DVD series will help you learn the structure and strategy of Functional Integration® (FIsm) lessons. Explore the theory and practice of the Method by teaching lessons around a specific functional theme. Develop an understanding of not just what to do, but why. Each phase of a lesson is presented in technical detail with an explanation of the reasoning behind it. Following the same logic as a musical score, Ideas in Action brings to light the compositional sense, technical organization and experiential processes that underlie effective, unforgettable learning.

    You will learn, step by step, what to notice and how to respond. This fosters a deep appreciation of the grammar and syntax of lessons necessary to become a reflective practitioner. The finer points of technique and self-use, are clarified.

    "Thanks for the different models for guiding the learning process and supporting the communication between practitioners. I have a new, much deeper understanding of the Method that is concrete and powerful. It's exciting to now know that my understanding and skills are going to continue to get better and better. I already notice the impact of the 5 days on the ATM®s that I gave yesterday and the FIs today — that is amazing, really amazing! Larry's way of teaching is fun, precise, extremely open and at the same time guided by his past "errors" that he generously shares. I have become aware of the 'things that I'll do wrong'. It was especially great in the second segment to use simple 'well-known' moves in FI as a way to move towards a deeper appreciation of technique, simpler & more efficient self-use and to improve the quality of the dialogue between practitioner and student."
    - Lynn Bullock, Feldenkrais Practitioner, Paris, France
