Back in October 2010, I posted some statistics about how many ATMs were being downloaded from the openATM.org site and in all the different parts of the world. Well it is a year now that the new openATM.org site has been active and I thought it interesting to look at some of these statistics now. Over the past year there have been:
- 26,700 unique visits to the site from 9291 visitors.
- The visits have come from 108 different countries and territories. The top countries are the USA, UK, Germany, Canada, and Israel – all places where the Feldenkrais Method is established. But Mexico is number 9, India is number 15, and Egypt is number 31 – all places where (correct me if i am wrong), the Feldenkrais method has little to no presence.
- 11,353 ATMs uniquely downloaded from the site and a total of 144 different ATM lessons. The most downloaded ATM with 422 unique downloads is Sharon Starika’s Jan 20 2004 ATM “Continuation of Holding the Knee”. This may be the most popular because it was for a long time the first ATM on the list. In second place is Jim Stephen’s Hamstring ATM with 321 unique downloads. Third place is my Apr 12 2010 “Opening the Shoulders, Part 1″ lesson with 296 unique downloads. These ATMs are often being downloaded in places where there is no access to ATM classes. Another thing to consider, if there are on average 2 ATMs in a 160 day Feldenkrais training program this is 320 ATM lessons. With 144 lessons, the openATM.org has almost half the equivalent content of a training program.
We keep on slowly adding lessons and improving the site. I welcome any feedback you may have. And now, lie down on the floor, scan yourself, and enjoy the lessons.
