WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"Movers come for the tricks, but stay for the pedagogy.
Like most folks that may read this, I made the decision to partake in a Tom’s in-person workshop after the initial attraction to the wonderous spectacle of his movement. What I left with was a yearning for further insights into the qualitative pedagogy of Movement Archery and Zen Acrobatics. The Movement Archery Fundamental Series is an invitation into that qualitative process.
With this series, Tom & Roser provide an engaging and endearing educational experience that encourages awareness, introspection, empathy, and integration.
With both broad, yet intentional strokes and minute yet, playful details, Tom and Roser have created a project that all-levels of movement experience can engage with and enjoy.
For beginners, this series is quite welcoming through it’s many accessible approaches into an embodiment practice.
For seasoned practitioners, the Warm Up bears a valuable investment in self-care. The Cartwheel is a rewarding participation in the revolution of redefining what it means to 'cartwheel'."

“Once again, Tom & Roser have delivered something of immense depth and value. Their attention to detail and signature style is so refreshing and encouraging. Somehow they have managed to take complex and intimidating practices and offer a way in that is highly beneficial to any student of meditation and movement. Study should be full of personal insight, and the learning environment that Tom & Roser provide holds true to the original intention of teaching - that the wisdom one receives is direct and impactful to one’s own life and practice.”“Once again, Tom & Roser have delivered something of immense depth and value.

"Tom and Roser have undertaken the noble task of finding the fundamental language of movement. Their work shines through its loyalty to a conceptual framework with no compromise.
The series opens a vast landscape of practice with so little vocabulary for practitioners. For teachers, it provides a refreshing and inclusive language of expression.
This multidisciplinary body of knowledge speaks to many practice fields, leaving ample room for exploration. I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone seeking to deepen their understanding of movement."

"As a Yoga and Dance teacher this essay gave me new tools and perspective of the space around me and the possibility to move with it. Tom has a wonderful talent of taking complicated movements and to explain it in a precise and clear way. The uncompromised study and research of Tom throughout the years helped him to create his unique movement language. This enables him to make any movement practice interesting and creative and as a student of this essay it added a lot of playfulness and fun which also helped me to find my own creativity.
Watching and practicing the content allowed me to develop new ways of seeing extraordinary possibilities in ordinary movement and space. In a way, I felt I was developing awareness of the special experience that is movement itself.
This essay is a must for anyone interested in movement and looking for refining and upgrading their perspective on the body, time and the space."

Tom's rolling appears magical. Though I've seen him rolling for years, often I am compelled to suspect there is a secret ingredient in his technique. But here he deconstructs rolling so thoroughly, that nothing remains hidden nor mystified.
These essays are practical stepping stones. An example of a living practice. They invite you to enter the world of rolling at your own pace and for your own reasons. Doing that through time will present you with Tom's simple secret: Invest in what you love, and gifts will follow."

I have come to know Tom as the personification of poetry in motion. Witnessing Tom's self-expression through movement and dance captured my imagination at first glance. The technical execution of how Tom moves in space is a showpiece in itself -- but there is more. There is an essence of wonderment and authenticity to Tom's being in movement. It appears that Tom has a unique relationship with gravity and space that is far beyond technicalities.In his 'Essays on Freedom of Movement,' the student is introduced to the perspectives, concepts, and principles that Tom has harnessed through a lifetime of exploring movement. Not only are the classes produced in a pristine fashion, but the delivery of how a student can engage and integrate the content into their life is simply poetic.The student is offered a view of the world, and suggestions of how to interact with it to bring one's own authentic physical expression to the surface. Loaded with pragmatic approaches to developing technical performance this piece of education can complement the seasoned dancer and turn the world into a playground for the general movement enthusiast.I am personally delighted that Tom has created such a practical and wonderful resource that I can integrate into my own practice at any time, anywhere. I am particularly grateful for the profound insights into creating a practice inspired by wonderment. Bravo Mr.Weksler!"
