I hope you enjoy these lessons as much as I and many other practitioners have enjoyed teaching them. The Intelligent Body series was developed in the early 1980s, partly borne of frustration– it was hard to find lessons of Moshe’s that were well recorded. This was the first studio recorded Awareness Through Movements lessons series. By now, nearly 1000 practitioners worldwide have used these lessons. Many new practitioners would do a lesson before going to teach their own class. -Frank Wildman, GCFT, PhD

I’m almost 60 and after a lifetime of fitness and outdoor activities I have developed some lower back problems in recent years and chronic plantar fasciitis, which together have restricted my mobility. I’m amazed by how much extra movement I’m developing already, doing a session every day, and I’m looking forward to regaining full mobility this year. Thanks for your wonderful CDs.
