Course Title: Masterful Moves for Neurosomatic Integration

Subtitle: The Movement Improvement Multiplier Method
using the Five Rings Approach for Neuro-Somatic Reprogramming*
Insights from zebras, economics, and the present moment

Description: Five rings approach Multiplying the Benefits.

* The brain and central nervous system are now known to map and program new learning much quicker when movement awareness, hands-on sensory feedback, and feeling states are simultaneously connected.

The key is in the kind of lesson/exercises that connect directly to both the ‘necessary’ and ‘desired’ movements of one’s life.

Goals: augment personal and professional practice skills and returns.

Getting more personal – and client – benefits in terms of health, wellness, and far fewer problems.

“Just as with 26 letters of the alphabet you can create a ‘universe’ of writing, so with six primary pathways you can quickly analyze a ‘client’ and see which movement pathways have been compromised and can be improved”-Paul Davidovits, paraphrased by JD

Professional option goal: be recognized and certified ( thru CMITI, LLC ) in this Competency
Tuition fee: $180 total prior to Jan 31, 2023, $210 thereafter
Six weeks Masterful Moves Course Feb 6 to Mar 13, 2023
(included in the tuition is a $30 Video and notes from Nov-Dec, 2022 basic course for prior study

 

ATM© and FI© expanded and viewed through neuro-based body movement pathways of:

Functional movement patterns as they relate to gravity

Myofascial movement with hands-on tissue tracking

Synchronized breathing with directional hands-on movement

Sensory-emotive feeling states as they shift from neuro-dissonance into neuro-somatic ‘resonance’ (the flow-zone); and

Somatic equanimity for our optimum psycho-biological state (aka polyvagal theory).

åçThe program’s purpose is to retrain and improve the brain-body connection so we move efficiently, safely and confidently. Only then are we able to ‘do what we want’ and access ‘somatic equanimity.’

 

The Program/Course is called ‘Masterful Moves’, a post training primarily for practitioners (not excluding selected qualified students & clients with personal learning and appropriate preparation), conducted by Josef and CMITI,LLC.

Josef DellaGrotte, PhD, CFP-physio, is one of the foremost experts on improving both functional-neuromyofascial movement and psychophysical related disorders. His training experience includes physical therapy, Rolf Structural Integration, yoga and t’ai chi- chi kung. From 1973-1981  DellaGrotte trained with scientist Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais, becoming one of the first certified Feldenkrais practitioners and trainers in the USA.

He is well known for his exceptional manual skills and ability to ‘read’ psychophysical patterns of behavior. Using the body’s six Core Movement Pathways as a base, he has shown, guided and taught clients, students and trainees to reactivate dynamic core stability, balance and alignment; improve functional activities of life; reduce mobility limitations, restore natural movement patterns and; learn how to access ‘polyvagal’ equilibrium.

His published works include Instructions From Within, 2007, and Awaken Movement-The Key to Life, 2016.

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 International Website
And at the Thinking in Movement Studio * A Sounder World with Sounder Sleep System™

‘The Politics of Attention and the Promise of Mindfulness’

Dear Friends
Noting a free conversation about one hour from now ~ everyone is welcome:
Best wishes,
Katarina

Larry Berger has been developing a philosophy of attention for many years over the course of his academic career. He was formerly a business school professor at the universities of Iowa and Pennsylvania, after which he decided to engage in philosophy full time, teaching philosophy at Marist College and Montclair State University. He has published a number of articles on the philosophy of attention and is working on a book entitled The Politics of Attention and the Promise of Mindfulness, in which Eugene Gendlin’s A Process Model plays a central role.

Katarina Halm, MA, CFT, GCFP, received her M.A. degree from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology with a thesis on Resonance and Dissonance in the Learning Process. A Focusing teacher and Feldenkrais® Practitioner, she is dedicated to furthering the Feldenkrais Method® with Gendlin’s philosophy. The October 2022 PolyVagal presentation will develop themes from A Sounder World w/ Sounder Sleep System™ , Rolling with Possibility,  Attuning to Natural Process Action Steps, and Horizons of Understanding.

Moshé Feldenkrais & Ruthy Alon

Moshé Feldenkrais inspired many of his students to create programs generated from his teaching – some colleagues consider these Feldenkrais® offshoots or branches.  Some of us dream that these branch modalities may be reunited under one umbrella to strengthen the Feldenkrais community. 

Ruthy Alon began her training with Moshé in Tel Aviv, Israel in 1958.  She went on to become a Feldenkrais Method® trainer in Europe, America, Australia, Israel. Here are Ruthy Alon Videos showing her work with Moshé and her development of the Bones for Life® program based on the Feldenkrais Method®.

Appreciation for Thinking in Movement Studio

”It was so nice to attend your session this morning, I enjoyed spending time with the group and it was the first time I experienced your teaching style, it is perfect for me, the pace and the repetition meet me right where I am. ” –– Jenna Blaustein, Feldenkrais® GCFP jennaroseblaustein.com

“I have been studying “Focusing” and “Bones for life” with Katarina since 2018. Her classes, tutorials, and practice sessions enhance my ability to listen well, both through words and kinaesthetically through my hands, eyes, ears, and intuition. Katarina’s teaching led me to become a better hands-on practitioner. I highly recommend working with Katarina. She has an innate ability to help practitioners cue into our own nervous systems, teaching us to give space and time for listening to ourselves and others using our kinaesthetic senses.”  –– Minal S. Feldenkrais® Practitioner, USA

“I find the minimal movements during the lessons evoke meaningful learning. I am more aware of that moment when my system is clear and open. I experience an instantaneous felt sense of curiosity. I can breathe more freely and see that situations are progressing, so I find a more positive view of life. I am more and more aware of my learning as I continue the lessons with Katarina and Thinking in Movement teachers. I am supported in translating the lessons into a rhythm for myself. Thus I find ways to be conscientious – I find the best place for my energy and endeavours to land each day, each week, and for each project.” –– Alfo Humano, Focusing trainer, Cordoba,  Argentina www.alfohumano.com.ar

“Katarina’s classes are full of deep educational aspects. Her pace makes practice easy. Having feedback from her gives safety.”    Student 

Warmest greetings and devotion to learning,
Katarina
