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

Bones for Life®

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
  • Develop your skill of restoring equilibrium
  • Enhance the pleasure of moving
