• ELLEN’S VISION FOR THE SERIES ”I’d like to help people transfer the AY ATM lessons into FI lessons by coaching either a practitioner’s technique or by applying basic principles of the method. I truly want the class to be set-up as a self-forming, self-selecting group.”
• ELLEN DESCRIBES THE PROCESS ”Part of my style is watching practitioners attempt to do FI “moves” based on their current understanding of a lesson. Then, I give verbal cues until the practitioner’s technique and understanding improves. An “aha” moment becomes apparent to the person on the table, to the practitioner, and to observers. A practitioner’s handling skills and understanding improve in an organic way and this is better than watching and imitating a demonstration. The benefit of this style is that the learned skills are transferable to other situations.”

GUIDELINES FOR PARTICIPATION IN ELLEN’S TUTORIALS
* Learning the Feldenkrais® Method occurs in successive approximations that foster learning and growth. When an improvement is apparent or necessary, a human nervous system learns from small variations and changes. Using this principle, we altered a few procedures so organizing Ellen’s tutorials is smoother. The current learning environment is better with these small changes.
* Each participant in Ellen’s tutorials is expected to attend on a regular basis and not on a “drop-in occasionally” basis. Everyone is welcome to sign up for two or three dates at a time. Please sign up by email with Katarina at least a week in advance. When you are listed as Practitioner, please send your notes to Katarina at least a week in advance. (Note: a few participants are scheduled to use Ellen’s doodle).
THE PRACTITIONER/PRESENTER FOR A TUTORIAL SENDS NOTES PRIOR TO THE PRESENTATION
Ellen’s 4 Questions for the AY lesson you choose:
Each practitioner chooses an AY lesson that could be turned into a suitable FI lesson for his or her student. Each practitioner sends his or her responses to the following questions to Katarina at least 48 hours prior to the session. (email@example.com ) Katarina will send these notes to the observers for advance study and to Ellen for review.
1. What about these lessons appeals to you?
2. What are the themes explored in these lessons?
3. What parts of the lesson seem simple and obvious to transfer to FI lessons?
4. What parts of the lesson seem absolutely impossible to transfer into an FI lesson and why do you think that?
please send your responses and lesson notes to firstname.lastname@example.org
