What should I wear?
Warm and comfortable cloths that do not restrain movements.
I am in pain, can I use the Feldenkrais Method?
Yes! A wonderful aspect of the Method is to be able to explore new opportunities for moving without pain from different positions. We will start from the most comfortable position for you.
In case of extreme pain it is better to start with some individual lessons.
Can anyone teach The Feldenkrais Method?
The Feldenkrais Method can only be taught by Guild Certified Teachers.
In order to become certified teacher, you must graduate from a Guild accredited training. The training takes 4 years covering theoretical and practical aspects of the method.
A teacher have to attend advanced lessons every year after graduation.
Are you fully insured?
Yes, I am fully insured as certified by the guild
Is the method different from Yoga?
Yes, it is different. It does nor involve flexibility or stretching. We stay away from the idea of stretching muscles entirely and we don't hold positions.
In a class we explore sequence of movements in a gentle and playful way. In an Individual lesson we work together to explore different way to distribute movement through the body.
