A tag (aka keyword) is a descriptive identifier that is applied to a Feldenkrais® ATM lesson. Tags help users find lessons. For example, to see all the pelvic-clock lessons, click the tag "pelvic-clock" below. Tags associated with more lessons appear larger than tags associated with fewer lessons.

Displaying the tags associated with a ATM lesson

At the top right of each page is a menu of items that starts with Edit. The right most menu item is "...". If you click on the "...", the system will show you the tags for the page. Alternatively, tags for a page can be displayed and edited by going to the Page list: tags and filtering.

Tagging a lesson

To tag a lesson, consider the following questions:
  • Teacher: Who taught the ATM lesson that is being described, e.g. Moshe, Haller, Hegie, ...
  • Body part: Does this ATM focus on a particular body part and if so, what? buttocks, eyes, feet, hamstrings, shoulder, ...
  • Movement: Is there a simple way to describe the key movement done in the ATM, e.g. breathing, crawling, lying-to-sitting, lying-to-standing, ...
  • Initial Position: What is the initial position of the movement, e.g. all-fours, four-point, kneeling, kneeling-with-trunk-on-table, lying, lying-on-side, sitting, ...
  • Source: What is the source of the ATM, e.g. Amherst, ATMBook, AY, Esalen, London, Segal-Yaron, SF, Victoria2, ....
  • Theme: Are there lessons with same initial position, same movement, and similar exploration (perhaps taught at a different time), e.g. 4-points, deadbird, pelvic clock, ...? Is this lesson part of a sequence of lessons, e.g. head-stands, bell-hand, ...

Other questions could be added to this list in the future if they create useful ways to categorize lessons.

Every lesson must have the tag "lesson" and at a minimum a tag for its author, initial position, and source.

If two tags could apply but one is more specific than the other, both should be used. For example, if a lesson starts with the student lying on their stomach, then both "lying-prone" and "lying" should be used.

Guidelines for creating new tags

  • It is important that there is only one tag for each idea. For example, for ATMs that start with the student lying face down, the tag "lying-prone" is being used. Though initially other names could have been chosen (e.g. "lying-on-stomach"), now that "lying-prone" is in use, it should be the only tag that is used to describe that position.
  • It is also important that each tag acts as good filter. It would not be helpful to create a tag that could be applied to only one or two lessons nor would it be helpful to create a tag that could be applied to almost every lessons.
  • There are no tags for describing the effect of a lesson since every lesson could have any effect depending on the student.
  • Tags should be narrowly defined and used. For example, the tag "feet" should be used for ATMs that focus on the exploration of the feet and not for all ATMs that in some way involve the feet.
