  • Product Description

    Organized around the theme of integrating the arms, this comprehensive DVD series will help you learn the structure and strategy of Functional Integration® (FIsm) lessons. Explore the theory and practice of the Method by teaching lessons around a specific functional theme. Develop an understanding of not just what to do, but why. Each phase of a lesson is presented in technical detail with an explanation of the reasoning behind it. Following the same logic as a musical score, Ideas in Action brings to light the compositional sense, technical organization and experiential processes that underlie effective, unforgettable learning.

    You will learn, step by step, what to notice and how to respond. This fosters a deep appreciation of the grammar and syntax of lessons necessary to become a reflective practitioner. The finer points of technique and self-use are clarified.

    "Of all the Feldenkrais trainers I've worked with, I recommend Larry Goldfarb's teacher trainings because I know from my own experience that he can prepare people to understand, communicate and successfully practice the method."
    - Ellen Sevy, Santa Monica, CA
