What is ATM?
ATM is the exploration of the connection between the brain and behaviour. The brain – behaviour connection is one of the keys to realizing our full human potential. It enables reprogramming of the nervous system through patterns of thought and movement, bringing forth the fullest expression of abilities.
What happens in an ATM lesson?
ATM Classes are run in a group format and students are guided step-by-step through a sequence of gentle, physical movements alternating with periods of quiet rest. The classes are done while lying on a soft mat on the floor, standing, walking or sitting.
The rest periods between the movements in ATM are as important as the movements themselves. It allows the body to assimilate the movement and effortlessly promote effective learning. Each class is carefully structured to reveal something new and fascinating about yourself. ATM helps to gain greater self-awareness and more options for action.
