Power, Stability, Awareness:
A Feldenkrais® Approach to Health

Aug 2021 - Providence, USD
  Develop your optimal physical and psychological potential, exploring the brilliance of the Feldenkrais Method® interwoven with concepts from the sciences and martial arts.

Unleash your innate fitness. Enhance your inner composure. Strengthen your personal integrity. Increase your understanding of human movement and its scientific foundations. Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais, founder of the Feldenkrais Method of somatic education, was a man of action, a scientist and a judo expert. We’ll weave these three threads into a coherent whole—emphasizing experience while cultivating a sophisticated understanding of personal development. Experiencing the rich repertoire of Feldenkrais lessons will be the focal point of Jeff, Moti and Roger’s multiple perspectives.

Jeff Haller, PhD, master Feldenkrais Trainer, regards the Feldenkrais Method as a pathway to the inner composure necessary for living a creative life in a challenging world. He brings an unmatched understanding of the biomechanical principles embedded in the Feldenkrais Method. Jeff will teach Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® group lessons and demonstrate Functional Integration® one-one-one sessions.

Moti Nativ, master martial arts teacher, offers a wide perspective of self-defense that goes beyond fighting to realizing personal integrity. He has a deep knowledge of Dr. Feldenkrais’ pathway from his early experience in self-defense in the 1920s to his mastery of Judo in the 1950s. Moti shows how Feldenkrais utilized his martial arts background while inventing the movement lessons that bear his name. He will guide us through an exploration of the synergetic crossroads of martial arts and the Feldenkrais Method, each enriching the other.

Roger Russell, Feldenkrais Trainer, physical therapist and movement scientist, draws on 40 years of study of evolution, developmental psychology, movement science, neuroscience and philosophy. Roger will set guideposts from the world of ideas for grasping the experiential depth of Moti and Jeff’s teaching.
