Forces of Nature: Gravity, Compression and the Art of Joining in Functional Integration
With Elizabeth Beringer & David Zemach-Bersin
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. In this workshop you will learn how to use yourself to simulate gravity, so that you can perturb your student's nervous system to bring their skeleton into active alignment with the gravitational field.
Throughout this workshop, we will explore the ways in which true 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, enabling you to create an unusual “lightness of being” in others.
Elizabeth Beringer, one of the world's foremost Feldenkrais teachers and trainers, will guide two new professional training programs as educational director. For more about Elizabeth, click here.

Visit a Feldenkrais Professional Training Program
Many practitioners take advantage of ongoing training programs to fulfill their CEUs with the Feldenkrais Guild of North America, invigorate their practices and skills, and connect with the Feldenkrais community. Visit our list of training programs under Professional Training.
To see Elizabeth Beringer's teaching schedule, where you may also attend a training, a public workshop or an Advanced Training, visit the link under our Practitioner Area.
The cost of attending a training program will vary. Please check with each program individually about the price if you'd like to visit. At training programs held at the Feldenkrais Institute of San Diego, practitioners may attend one day a year for free. Each day beyond that is $50 per day.
