Ellen Soloway March 17, 2019 ~ Introduction to Seeing Beyond Limitations – Advanced Training with Ellen Soloway

Functional Integration® Online Mentoring Group experience – Sunday, March 17, 2019  1pmEST  10amPST

Join Ellen Soloway, Feldenkrais practitioner and assistant trainer, in a live online Functional Integration mentoring experience.
Participants will observe a Feldenkrais Practitioner giving an FI™ lesson
to a client while Ellen gives verbal cues until the practitioner’s technique and understanding improves.
The FI will be based on an ATM lesson specifically selected by the practitioner for his client from the Alexander Yanai series of lessons. Observing participants in the group will receive notification of the AY lesson reference number in advance of the session.
“This is better than watching and imitating a demonstration because the practitioner’s handling skills and related understanding of the ATM lesson improve in an organic way. I give verbal cues until an “aha” moment becomes apparent to the person on the table, to the practitioner, and to the observers.” Ellen Soloway
“My first time watching Ellen support a practitioner in the FI process answered many of those questions that I have had during my own FI practice sessions. She provided insights that I immediately used the next day in FI’s with my own clients. I was so appreciative of her style of coaching that I immediately wanted to become a part of her mentoring group sessions and even arranged for her to come to Canada to lead an advanced training for practitioners.” Brent Kisilevich GCFP, Vernon, BC.
Some questions that may arise for practitioners during FI lessons:
  • What am I supposed to be looking for?
  • How might I select a lesson that will address my client’s needs?
  • How do I organize myself to do this move?
  • How do I know if I made a difference that the client understands?
  • What might I do next?
  • How do I identify the ‘aha’ moment in an FI?
  • How do I know the session is finished?
