SOME OF OUR PROGRAMS
BONES FOR LIFE®
BIOLOGICAL OPTIMISM’ and ‘NEUROLOGICAL DIPLOMACY’ are key terms in the program. Lessons include the concepts of AXIS and WAVE, where the ‘axis’ ensures a safe trajectory of physical force moving through the body, strengthening and aligning the body’s structure. The ‘wave’ involves the body’s flexible, spiral movement, enabling turning, reaching, and bending. Unique weight-bearing processes ensure optimum UPRIGHTNESS at any age. The BFL® WRAP is another unique feature, providing modulated compression and support at various joints to foster uprightness, resilience, and confidence.
Through BFL practice, we become more aware of our position in space, finding a more graceful movement and strength within our comfort and safety. Bones for Life was developed by Feldenkrais® trainer Ruthy Alon, a graduate of Dr. Feldenkrais’s first Tel Aviv training; learning occurs through the basic principles of Dr. Feldenkrais’s teachings along with Ruthy Alon’s innovations.

SOUNDER SLEEP SYSTEM®
Also Noting: Sounder Sleep System® MINI MOVES® lessons support a steady connection with the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) balanced with a lively interest through the sympathetic nervous system (SNS). A background sense of calm (parasympathetic) is developed throughout the day. We also engage the sympathetic to foster vitality and enthusiasm. Practicing Sounder Sleep System leads to a more restful sleep at night. A key concept is ‘L.E.S.S. Less is More – Light Easy Soft and Slow’ in relation to breathing and some movement explorations. Fine motor movements (parasympathetic dominant) are juxtaposed with larger actions (sympathetic dominant). This cultivation of a quiet calm balanced with lively interest works to refine our autonomic nervous system: Three daily, three-minute practices over three weeks foster new habit patterns which allow for integration and refinement of the entire self. The lessons provide practical applications to support physical and emotional regulation and mental resilience, which ensure Polyvagal health. Sounder Sleep System, current © Copyright Paris Kern, was Founded by Michael Krugman, Feldenkrais Teacher, and is carried into today’s world by Paris Kern Feldenkrais Trainer and Janine Holenstein Feldenkrais Teacher, and Sounder Sleep System Teachers through the
