Mind in Motion - News about the Netherlands

We realize that function preceded structure
thinking preceded mind,
the verb preceded the noun,
doing was experienced before the thing done.
— Mabel Todd

Though we haven’t quite finished the preparations for the next Feldenkrais teacher training program in the Netherlands, we have laid most of the foundation. Working with Panta Rhei, a Dutch agency that organizes postgraduate courses for osteopathy and is going to serve as the administrator for the new training, we plan to start in spring 2024. 

Before the official announcement this summer, I’m teaching a free introductory webinar next Tuesday, 23 May 2023, called Realizing Movement Potential.

Judo master, engineer, and somatic pioneer Moshe Feldenkrais developed a methodology for recovering, improving, and optimizing coordination and skill. This profoundly practical and effective approach is based on two premises:

    1. The human frame is built to move with ease, agility, and strength.
    2. The neuroplasticity of the motor cortex affords life-long learning.

This introductory webinar reveals how Feldenkrais developed his systemic approach to understanding optimal biomechanics and analyzing the unconscious habits that interfere with it. We will delineate how the method utilizes innate learning mechanisms to remove restrictions, decrease pain, and improve function. You will have the opportunity to experience an experiential movement lesson that puts these ideas into action.
