Here is a post with a clip including the heart circle… Feldenkrais® & Vagus System: Elinor Silverstein/Anastasi Siotis  https://thinkinginmovement.ca/polyvagal/#toggle-id-1 An informative and practical presentation from Elinor Silverstein: “We led a lovely impromptu online 1-hour class for Feldenkrais® members about the Vagus System and what we can do to help ourselves and others. Here is the video of all of us together and to so many more who were not able to attend but would like to see it and learn. This is for everyone, you don’t need to be a Feldenkrais Practitioner”.  http://bit.ly/vagusintr

Testimonials …

“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 at Corona Plaza Life. 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

“These Feldenkrais classes have really helped me get in touch with my body, learn what it needs, how to calm my nervous system, and to ignite my innate energy. Thank you so much for all the presence, attention, and teaching you have done. I really appreciate it.”
–– Laurie Brill, New Mexico

Testimonials by Participants in the upcoming 15- hour Module 1
Sounder Sleep System™ Monday-Thursday August 9-12, 2021

(* upon completion of this provisional first module, further training may be completed with a Sounder Sleep System™ teacher trainer.)

In both of my recent Sounder Sleep classes with Katarina, I’ve had profound experiences. With the mini-movies processes, her gentle manner and soothing voice have helped to guide me into a very deep, quiet, and peaceful place within. I am looking forward to being a part of her August Sounder Sleep training!
–– Yonah Gershator, Mezzo-soprano, Feldenkrais® Practitioner, NYC

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

Additional Testimonials by Participants
All mini-moves proposed (and softly guided) in the classes resulted not only in relaxation also in learning how to be “coming home”. Invaluable!
–– Alfo Humano, Sincronía es Propósito, Focusing Trainer, Sounder Sleep System™ Teacher, www.alfohumano.com.ar

I am enjoying coming to Katarina’s sessions very much. Her welcoming plant-filled space allows me to feel very comfortable and her gentle and perceptive comments and guidance are most helpful! Corona Plaza is a fun meeting space where I have met interesting people from all over the world. Thank you very much for providing this lovely learning space!
–- Sílvia, London, Feldenkrais Practitioner, Bones for Life Teacher, Sounder Sleep System™ Teacher, UK, June 2021

Katarina’s classes are full of deep educational aspects. Her pace makes practice easy. Having feedback from her gives safety.
— Yesim Alic, PhD Candidate, Feldenkrais Practitioner, Sounder Sleep System™ Teacher, May 2021

I find the Sounder Sleep exercises very relaxing, especially as introduced by Katarina Halm.   –– Participant May 2021

Bones for Life® ‘Basic Principles’

An intriguing composite image by Elizabeth Keith
‘What Texting does to your spine’ from Elizabeth Keith

Ten Bones for Life® Basic Principles
~ Welcoming you to ponder, practice, and post your notes!

BFL Principle #1: Explorations of options: The system chooses what is right for the situation present (Organic Kinaesthetic Learning)

BFL Principle #2: Multi-Angle Pressure

BFL Principle #3: Learning through Passivity

BFL Principle #4: Use of Polarized Movement

BFL Principle #5: Awareness of the Posterior

BFL Principle #6: Proportional Flexibility
~ Sense when you move with a flexibility that is proportional throughout your whole body and being … perhaps it brings you a feeling of being sturdy, delicately gentle while being strong … turning a little this way and that way from your very center.

BFL Principle #7: Use of surface contact

BFL Principle #8: Cultivating the memory of the pathway of pressure

BFL Principle #8: Accumulating consensus

BFL Principle #10: Deprogramming the compulsive addiction through selective inhibition

The list of BFL Principles, immediately useful and inspiring, is now ordered numerically to enhance the flow of reflections and teaching strategies which we will explore during the coming weeks and months.

*CREDIT:  The original list of principles was provided by Carol Montgomery during the Bones for Life® 3 training she taught in Phoenix AZ 2011 as a part of the Integrated Learning Center of Mid America’s (ILCMA )BFL training program.
