|COURSE INFORMATION… FACULTY… CURRENT COURSES… WORKSHOPS… SEMINAR DESCRIPTIONS…
A new US 4-year program, in Oregon, is beginning Fall 2010... The entire program lasts 4 curriculum years,
40 days per curriculum year, and will take three calendar years
to complete (each curriculum year lasts nine months).
The coursework offers
a profound and pleasurable learning experience. You'll balance
your time between intense study and periods to assimilate the depth
of information. Classes are woven together in an experiential and
exploratory manner. Hands-on lessons, lectures, discussion groups,
reading and dvds will help guide you to learn at your own pace
in a non-competitive environment.
Curriculum and Learning
THROUGH MOVEMENT® (ATM) consists
of hundreds of lessons that cover every joint and muscle group
in the body, recapturing the organic learning processes of childhood.
They are done in a group setting with other students. Many of these
lessons were devised by Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais himself. Others are
specially designed by teaching faculty to illustrate particular
movement concepts. The lessons are balanced with lectures, demonstrations
INTEGRATION® (FI) is a systematic
approach of working “hands-on” with
another individual to address specific neurological or muscular
problems. Students receive personalized private instruction and
supervision from staff as they develop their own skills to work
with others. In the final year, a clinic allows students to perform FI lessons
under supervision while receiving detailed feedback.
of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais are extensively utilized including many
of his lectures on videotape. The ATM classes
and Dr. Feldenkrais's most interesting FI lessons
are closely examined and discussed in order to focus upon key principles
discussions, lessons and demonstrations videotaped and made available
to students. These daily recordings provide an indispensable means
of study. They also facilitate make-up sessions in the case of absence.
The video tapes also serve as a record of the student's progress
and enable review of one's physical transformation. Transcribed manuals
and commentary from lessons and lectures offer added clarity.
addition to interaction with instructors, students work in small
groups to maximize teaching and understand handling of different
individuals. Study groups occur in a highly personalized manner for
greater understanding of interactions. The groups promote invaluable
relationships among participants and a sense of mutual support or
home away from home. It is from these study groups that many lifelong
colleagues and friends can be established.
