For the past three years, David has been working on a series of powerful Feldenkrais lessons that focus on highly differentiated movements of the spine. Now, for the first time, he's offering this series of innovative lessons.
David Zemach-Bersin opened Feldenkrais Access to the public and the professional Feldenkrais Teacher community in early 2019. He studied directly with Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais for over ten years in Europe, Israel, and the US. David has trained nearly a thousand new Feldenkrais Teachers, created many Feldenkrais-based audio and video programs, and co-founded the Feldenkrais Institute of New York and the Feldenkrais Foundation. David has been in private practice for over 40 years and is the co-author of Relaxercise (HarperCollins). He lives with his wife Kaethe, in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
We will be donating 5% of the profits from this workshop to Communities United Against Police Brutality.
The movements of our eyes, mouth, and tongue have functional relationships with the movements of our spine, which makes accessing these neural patterns unusually potent.
What happens when you've spent approximately 80,000 hours of your life studying and teaching the Feldenkrais Method? You become potent: a potent practitioner, a potent trainer, and a potent student, still able to delve into the mysteries of the Feldenkrais Method and discover something new to share. David's upcoming workshop, 'Primordial Connections: Potency via the Tongue, Eyes, & Spine in Functional Integration and Awareness Through Movement' is that something new.
The movements of our eyes, mouth, and tongue have functional relationships with the movements of our spine, which makes accessing these neural patterns unusually potent. Integrated action of this kind existed long before homo sapiens and involves patterns and dynamics that are still present in our brain and essential to our development, organization, ease of movement, and future well-being. In this workshop, you will learn how to use these uniquely integrated movements in FI® and ATM® to communicate with the older, lower, and more reflexive parts of the brain to re-organize important aspects of movement. Original Awareness Through Movement lessons will help you restore your capacity for primordial or propulsive movements, as you sense and differentiate the movement of one vertebra from another.
“David's Primordial Connections workshop was a profound and immediate learning experience. Take advantage of this exceptional opportunity to grow your skills.” ~Peggi Honig, Assistant Trainer
"Primordial Connections was the clearest and best advanced training I have taken. It has helped me solidify almost everything we did in our four years of training. Last night on the train home I did not need to put my readers on to read my book, very impressive.” ~Marianne Kaufmann, New York
“I’ve been a practitioner for twenty years. Since I attended your advanced training on Primordial Connections last weekend, I have felt fabulous!! I’m much calmer, more focused, more energetic and feeling more confident. Thanks for sharing your vast knowledge. ~Marjorie Levine, Michigan
