"But first let's ask: what is a small difference, and how can you tell?" ~Moshe Feldenkrais

Working With Infants and Children:

A six-week online course with Arlyn Zones, MA

Sessions will be conducted via Zoom. All times are Pacific Standard Time.

Session 1: Tuesdays, Jan. 19-Feb. 23, from 12:00 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. PST

Session 2: Sundays, Jan. 24-Feb. 28, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. PST

Registration Fee: $325.00

Sign up information is below. Please note: The Sunday session is now full. There are few spots left for the Tuesday session. 

In this class series we will address various Functional themes that are of particular interest in the work with children. We will use short ATMs, sh.

ort video clips of myself or of Dr. Feldenkrais working, functional strategies, movement observation, lecture and group Q&A to explore various themes. You will also be assigned a few of Dr. Feldenkrais’s lessons to watch outside of class time. We will discuss these lessons together, highlighting particular aspects of each one.

We will clarify the general sequence of development and come to a better understanding of what each new variation contributes to the overall abilities of the person. This will include a discussion of reflexes and what it means when a medical person says that the child is stuck in the reflexes.

We will address the question of when to follow a developmental sequence and when not to follow it. Dr. Feldenkrais himself said different things about this issue at different times.

We will identify ways of having the same Functional conversation with the child in many positions or situations.

We will explore accessing the nervous system through the skeleton, through the muscles, and through the environment. This includes the notion of turning down the noise in the system so the learning can land.

REGISTRATION FOR THIS WORKSHOP IS FULL. There are two sessions for this course. Enrollment is limited to 30 attendees for each session.

Please note: If the workshop is SOLD OUT, you may contact Deirdre at office@feldenkraisresources.com to be placed on a wait list or to be notified if another session is offered in March.

About Arlyn


Arlyn Zones (MA, Theatre Arts) graduated from Dr. Feldenkrais last training program in 1983 and became a trainer in 1995. Since then she has taught in more than a hundred Feldenkrais Professional Training Programs worldwide. She was the educational director for trainings in Canada, the United States and Holland. Arlyn has been involved in teaching public workshops, advanced practitioner trainings and the mentoring of practitioners and assistant trainers.

As a young practitioner she was invited to bring the Feldenkrais Method® into a special school for children with learning differences. This started an inquiry that has gone on for nearly four decades. Since that time she has featured aspects of her work with children in Feldenkrais training programs, in workshops she has taught for pediatric therapists as well as in advanced trainings.

Arlyn has been active in her private practice since graduating from her training in 1983. She has worked with infants, children and adults with a wide variety of challenges. Most recently she delivered the keynote for FutureLifeNow’s online summit entitled: “Turning Challenges Into Possibilities for the Special Needs Family.” To see clips of her work included in the keynote you can visit: arlynzones.com.

A special opportunity for Feldenkrais teachers

Join Us! A Practitioner-Focused ATM Workshop Series ~ Taught by Highly Experienced European Teachers


Dear Colleagues, 

I am very pleased to announce a series of ATM workshops crafted exclusively for practitioners (see below). The six teachers all live and work in Europe and over decades of practice have each developed their own voice. Now that so many of us are spending more time at home, this seems like a great moment to “bring” these European teachers directly to you, many of whom you may otherwise rarely have encountered. They have active, successful and varied practices and will bring their unique handwriting to the event. It's a chance to nourish your ATM teaching with new perspectives from other branches of our Feldenkrais tree.

Wishing you healthy living and learning as you transition into the New Year!

Warmly, Elizabeth Beringer


It’s About Something and Everything...

An ATM is about something, and at the same time it can be taught in such a myriad of ways that seemingly endless dimensions can be discovered. This can lead us eventually to anything and everything! It can get tiring to put a one sentence theme on the boundless riches of ATM, so given that we're all practitioners, we won't. Come join these skillful teachers in an ongoing conversation through movement. Each workshop will include a rich menu of ATM and reflections on various aspects of ATM teaching. One meeting is scheduled per month starting in January. Each teacher will pick up themes from the prior month's workshop and take them in new directions as we move into and through this New Year. Each workshop will be four hours long, with a number of short breaks. The recordings will be available for streaming if you have to miss all or part of the day.

This course is open only to Feldenkrais practitioners.
