What is an Immersion Feldenkrais Training
Unlike many other methods or
techniques, immersion into sensory experience is essential to
learning the Feldenkrais Method. An extended sensory exploration
over a period of weeks allows for moving beyond your habitual way
of being with yourself and in the world. Integral to becoming a
Feldenkrais Practitioner is this deeper knowing of yourself.
Movement Educators provides a training format that supports
immersion, satisfying the need for self-discovery which is
foundational for practicing the method with others.
The SFe5 training will offer hours above and beyond the required guild regulations, as well as beyond the extended hours Movement Educators have been offering. These additional hours will come in several forms. One, the Awareness Through Movement and Functional Integration practicums will be done outside of regular class hours. There will be Public ATM classes taught by Diana before or after class that will help demonstrate the difference between training and public lessons. These lessons will be studied and become a basic set of lessons provided to the students for their initial teaching experiences. Another innovative addition to this training will be sponsors (Feldenkrais Practitioners) supporting trainees between segments. Sponsors will be coached by Diana to keep these extra studies aligned with the training curriculum. Assignments outside of class will be supported by various forms of technology. Other complimentary hours will be added in the form of presentations by local authors in the fields of psychology, communication, writing, science and martial arts.
The training meets 3 times per year: 2 weeks in the Spring, 4 weeks in the Summer and 2 weeks in the Fall. Trainers teaching include: Diana Razumny, Katrin Smithback, Carol Kress*, Arlyn Zones and Dennis Leri. Santa Fe 5 Feldenkrais Training is accredited by the FELDENKRAIS GUILD of North America
Change your Life
- Enroll in a Feldenkrais®
"When I began the Feldenkrais
Professional Training, I
was interested in how it would make me a better performer and
communicator. As the years of the training continued, I could feel
how my stage presence, my stamina, even the quality of my pieces
improved. By the fourth year, I was convinced that everyone in the
world should be studying the Feldenkrais
Method®. So I
gave up show business and became a full time practitioner. Since
then, I've developed two successful practices (In NJ and now in
NC), written two well-received books, recorded CDs, and teach this
wonderful work around the world. Has it changed my life? You
