"What I'm looking for isn't flexible bodies, but flexible brains. What I'm after is to restore each person to their human dignity." -Moshe Feldenkrais
This is an exciting time to become a Feldenkrais Practitioner. As the field of neuroscience is revealing more and more about our brain's extraordinary ability to learn and adapt, we are noticing a remarkable thing: Many of the most compelling research findings today were actually anticipated by physicist, martial artist and teacher Moshe Feldenkrais more than 50 years ago. This "new" research is turning some of our old beliefs about the brain…on their head. But Moshe Feldenkrais and the many teachers of the Feldenkrais Method® around the world have known this for quite a while: Our actions are shaped by our learning, which also shapes who we are, in a continuous cycle of action and learning that literally changes our brain's structure (this is called neuroplasticity). And by engaging our attention and our movement in very specific ways using the Feldenkrais Method, we can actually "build" a smarter and more flexible brain - and thus become smarter and more flexible human beings.
So if you would like to improve the quality of your life, and help others improve the quality of their lives; if you are interested in experiential learning and movement, or if you want to understand how to learn more effectively, then the Optimal Moves® Feldenkrais Teacher Training Program is for you.
