The Use of Surprise in Functional Integration:

A Three-Day Advanced Training in 

Helsinki, Finland

with Feldenkrais Institute of San Diego Director Elizabeth Beringer

August 2-4, 2018

One of the hallmarks of Moshe Feldenkrais’s ATM lessons is his particular use of novelty, not just the novelty inherent in the incredibly variety of situations and tasks, but also in the rhythm and construction of the lessons themselves. In this three-day advanced training, we will look at how we use novelty and surprise in Functional Integration to create engagement and solidify learning.

We are delighted to welcome Ruthy Alon, the innovative creator of the Movement Intelligence programs, back to San Diego. Ruthy is returning to the Feldenkrais Institute of San Diego to share Part Two of her series, Movement Intelligence: Solutions for Optimal Mobility. This program offers easily applicable self-care strategies for an array of individual functional issues. Ruthy is reducing her travel schedule so this is a rare opportunity to work with her in the United States. This program is open to both Feldenkrais Practitioners and the public.All participants welcome. Attendance in Part One is not required.

Movement Intelligence: Solutions for Optimal Mobility, Part Two guides participants in a wide range of innovative neuro-motor processes designed to improve well-being, and bring new perspectives to common movement-related issues. Held over the six days, the program will include these central themes: posture, balance, squatting and its place in comfortable sitting, pelvic floor health, facial tension and many other intriguing areas for exploration.

To each of these areas, Ruthy Alon will apply processes inspired by the Feldenkrais Method's integrative approach to functioning: exploring the reciprocal relationship between the area of suffering and its network of roots throughout the entire body, for functioning as nature intended. Ruthy Alon's Movement Intelligence exercises will empower participants to awaken their own self-correcting intelligence, so that their organism is able to overcome its own functional failures with better options for efficiently coordinated action. Who is this program intended for?

• This “Movement Intelligence: Solutions” workshop is open to both health professionals and the public.

• Anyone with a personal interest in learning how to address problems that limit their freedom of movement.

• Graduates of other Movement Intelligence programs and Feldenkrais teachers who wish to enrich their teaching toolkit with practical self-care solutions and new strategies for helping others to move with ease. For more information about “Solutions - Part Two,” please visit the Movement Intelligence website. www.movementintelligence.org

You will also need a piece of fabric to use as a wrap. The fabric wrap is 7 meters (7 yards, 21’ x 45" wide) of cotton fabric, purchased at JoAnn Fabrics. It is called "Country Classic" and is found in the quilter's section, or can be purchased at an equivalent store. JoAnn's frequently offers coupons on its website, joann.com.

In Ruthy’s words: “The Movement Solutions Program applies the Feldenkrais Method's® integrative approach to functioning; exploring the reciprocal relationship between the area of suffering and its network of roots throughout the entire body. The result will be restoration of harmonious cooperation, so that the body is able to work as nature intended. The Movement Intelligence exercises are all designed as self-care strategies so that participants will leave the program with tools they can use at home. Participants will be empowered to awaken their own, self-correcting intelligence, so that their organism is able to overcome its own functional failures with better options for efficient, coordinated action.”

The Movement Intelligence Solutions Professional Track: This workshop will qualify as Part Two of Ruthy Alon's two-part Professional Training in the Solutions Module of the Movement Intelligence Program. Upon completion of Part One (consisting of 36 hours of study), participants will receive a Letter of Attendance. Upon completion of Movement Intelligence Solutions Part Two (the complete program totals 72 hours of study) and Didactic experiences (24 hours), participants will receive a Movement Intelligence Solutions Mentoring Certificate.
