Your study guide for ATM lessons



This is a pelvic clock lesson with the soles of the feet together and the legs open, in sitting (leaning on hands and elbows behind) and lying, including coordination and differentiation of the head.

Lesson Outline

  • Find your position for feet together, knees open, leaning on hands behind. (Take feet L/R, towards/away.)
  • Leaning on hands, roll pelvis/expand and sink abdomen: establish 12-6 image.
  • Leaning on elbows, take each knee to floor. (This is 10:30 and 2:30.) Alternate. Where does your nose go?
  • Variations in speed, participation of head.
  • Lying face up, legs in same position: 12-6, observing and varying the relation of the head (showing how stopping the head can stop the pelvis.)
  • Sitting, leaning on hands behind. Start with 12-6 and develop the whole circle of the pelvic clock.
  • Same, but with the head hanging backwards.
  • Lying face up, legs in same position, whole circle of the clock.

Focus of Moshe’s Teaching

  • Includes a discussion of the homunculus: the point relevant to this lesson he emphasizes is that you can remove the part of the motor cortex that controls the leg, and this causes no problem: the leg does a few movements only, and these do not generalize across the brain. But the hand is different: you do such a range of complex things relating to writing, music, etc: if you cut this out, you can’t recover.
  • “Clumsiness” is poor short-term memory.
  • Discussion of loving and hating; discussion of symmetry and asymmetry.
  • Transferring from one side to the other.
