Join two of our senior Feldenkrais Trainers, Elizabeth Beringer and David Zemach-Bersin, for a fascinating workshop supporting the development of high-level Functional Integration skills. 
Our skeletal structure is designed to counter the constant downward force of gravity, and its incessant pull toward the center of the earth. Dr. Feldenkrais understood that with a well-organized skeletal structure, we can nullify the effect of gravity, thereby creating a feeling of freedom and lightness in action--a state of almost zero gravity. In effective Functional Integration, compression is one of the essential resources we have for optimizing our students' relationship to their skeleton, bringing them to a higher level of organization. With a firm biological understanding and the use of precise and sensitive compressive force, we can actually replicate gravity in Functional Integration. You will learn how to use yourself to simulate gravity, so that you can perturb your students' nervous systems to bring their skeletons into active alignment with the gravitational field.


In this workshop, we will explore the ways in which potent Functional Integration emerges through the joining of two nervous systems. David and Elizabeth have taught together for over 30 years, and look forward to explicating the ways in which you can use your self and your senses to join effectively with another. This advanced training will help you to gain a unique combination of skills and enable you to create an unusual sensation or “lightness of being” in others.

Please note: This course is going to be video recorded to be made available at Feldenkrais Resources. Participants will be asked to sign a release form and will receive a DVD of the workshop.
