Easier, more comfortable living can emerge from a more efficient use of our skeleton, yet this ability is a hidden and relatively unperceived aspect of who we are.
The function of our skeleton to bear weight and transmit force is underutilized in our everyday use. Finding our skeleton allows a new way for us to interact with our environment.
Through Awareness Through Movement® (ATM®), we will discover how we can become more “skeletal,” resulting in a new and more vital sense of ourselves in a truly foundational way.
