FI lessons with expanded narration & analysis to help you understand Functional Integration as both a methodology & a creative art form.

 

 

David Zemach-Bersin is regarded as one of the finest exponents of Functional Integration in the world. He developed his approach and style during ten years of study with Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais and forty years of dedicated private practice.

The lessons in this series were filmed during workshops, advanced trainings, and Feldenkrais Professional Training Programs, and are not intended to demonstrate technique, but rather to show full complex Functional Integration lessons with expanded narration which reveals the mysterious inside art of high-level Functional Integration.

"I love working on this Feldenkrais Method in Action series. By adding narration to FI videos, I am able to explain more about my Functional Integration work than ever before. I can share details about what I was seeing or wondering about--moment to moment--and explain the lesson as it progresses. You will see me following hunches and doubts, navigating the unknown until finally, I zero in on a critical piece of new information.

-David Zemach Bersin

As the lessons unfold, David shares his sensory experience and thought process, and explains the relevant functional, biological, neurological, anatomical, psychological, and strategic aspects of each lesson.

With new inside perspectives, you will observe the relationship between sensations, perceptions and actions, and the changes which take place simultaneously in the practitioner, the lesson, and the student.

"I strongly recommend that any practitioner interested in how a master teacher creates a Functional Integration lesson watch these five lessons. I know that I will return back to them for continued learning."

-Staffan Elgelid PhD, PT, GCFP, C-IAYT

About David

 

Senior Feldenkrais Trainer David Zemach-Bersin met Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais in 1973 and studied with him for over ten years in the U.S., England, and Israel. He also studied extensively in Israel and the U.S., with Gaby Yaron and Yochanon Rywerant, both of whom graduated from Dr. Feldenkrais' first training program. Other influences on his work have been Yang form Tai Chi, Aikido, meditation, systems biology, and phenomenology. He has maintained a private Functional Integration practice since 1977 and is recognized for his contribution to strengthening Dr. Feldenkrais’s legacy. A graduate of UC Berkeley with two years of post-graduate work in physiological psychology, David has created numerous audio and video programs for both Feldenkrais Practitioners and the general public and is the co-author of Relaxercise (HarperCollins). He is a past President of FGNA, and a co-founder of Feldenkrais Resources and the Feldenkrais Institute of New York. David has directed seventeen Feldenkrais Professional Training Programs and teaches advanced trainings around the globe. Since 2020, he has been teaching primarily online and has worked to synthesize his thinking and the profound benefits of Dr. Feldenkrais' ideas in programs for both Feldenkrais Teachers and the public,  most of which can be found at FeldenkraisAccess.com. David would like to acknowledge his debt to Mark Reese and Dennis Leri, whose intellect and friendship he greatly misses. David and his life partner, Kaethe, live in the Farmington Valley area of Connecticut.
