FELDENKRAIS PROFESSIONAL TRAINING PROGRAM PALERMO 3
from the MOVEMENT to the BRAIN

REGISTRATION OPEN UNTIL APRIL 2017

“In the last centuries, medicine has regarded the brain as an immutable organ and unable to heal. But the vision introduced by the neuro-plasticity, which is the brain's ability to modify its structure and its operation, has opened the door to revolutionary therapeutic possibilities. Among these, the Feldenkrais Method is the METHOD that is able to reorganize, heal and make the brain plastic.

from “The brain’s way of healing”
Norman Doidge



THE FELDENKRAIS METHOD

Based on a deep integration occurring through movement, sensation, feeling and thought, the Method helps in a concrete and efficient way to increase well-being. It  recalls the equilibrium originally present in all human beings. To improve quality of movement organization, Feldenkrais’s (1904-1984) Method uses the natural intelligence of the body which allows human beings, starting from the first days of their life, to learn develop and to create their own uniqueness style of movement.
The Method stimulates the nervous system to activate its own original wisdom and allows the person to discover new, more efficient motor solutions. Individual lessons (Functional Integration®) and group lessons (Awareness Through Movement®), taught by Feldenkrais Practitioners permit learning to develop a better co-ordination and cooperation between all parts of the person and his body. Through the exploration of a very wide variety of alternative and possible movements, in a pleasurable learning atmosphere, each person’s perception is lead to a more appropriate use of himself.
