With the year 2016 I celebrated ten years teaching as a certified practitioner of the Feldenkrais® Method of Somatic Education.
We offer a certification track for those who wish to become certified in any or all of the five modalities of the Movement Intelligence Programme as developed by Feldenkrais® teacher Ruthy Alon: Bones for Life®, Chairs, Walk for Life, Mindful Eating, and Solutions for Optimal Mobility. Please see see Ruthy’s site for a beautiful informative description.
Bones for Life® & Movement Intelligence

The Movement Intelligence of Bone Strength and Weight-Bearing Posture Based on Dr. Feldenkrais’ approach to somatic learning
Develop harmonious coordination; Empower lively & dynamic gait; Train in bone building walking in rhythm; Reach Quality of natural fitness at any age; Restore resourcefulness of equilibrium & stability Align posture in the body language of self confidence
The movement answer to the functional failure of osteoporosis
Your bones are as reliable as your posture is able to sustain your body weight in an efficient alignment.
Your bones are as strong as your activity is dynamic and able to cope with challenges that demand strength.
Your bones are as healthy as Nature meant, if your movements are natural and all your body parts are harmoniously coordinated.
Through the simple, effective movement processes of the sixty-hour Bones For Life® program, you will learn gradually and safely how to:
Stimulate your bone strength and experience the biological optimism of a reliable skeleton
Coordinate a springy and dynamic walk
Align your posture into safe weight-bearing uprightness
