Power of the Primary Image

The primary image, as described by Moshe Feldenkrais, is an essential idea for observing movement, improving quality of action, and clarifying lessons. Awareness Through Movement® and Functional Integration® lessons will be woven together to develop a precise and yet flexible model for working with people with limited movement vocabularies. Moshe called it a shorthand for quickly assessing what is present in one's bodily organization and to then notice improvements and gaps in the self-image. Clients can learn to use the primary image to more easily realize their intentions.
