Practical Feldenkrais – the Challenge! (Washington DC)
Moti Nativ on Practical Feldenkrais - FGNA Conference, September, 2018.
Practical Feldenkrais Method - Differentiation & Integration for Efficient Whole Body Action
We’ll turn into practice the principles of the Feldenkrais Method of somatic education as Moshe wrote about when the “Method” did not yet formally exist, explaining principles of efficient and effortless action. You will experience meaningful yet unfamiliar movements, practical yet challenging actions, in a dynamic and safe way. Learn to elicit rapid recruitment of more efficient movement patterns using Awareness Through Movement (ATM) lessons in a safe and interactive situation. Explore the use of gravity, momentum, timing, and direction of movement to develop abilities such as the dynamic management of balance and counterbalance, and effective interaction with the environment. This workshop will be engaging, transformational and fun for all!
Moti Nativ, a retired colonel from the I.D.F, is a Feldenkrais practitioner and master teacher of Bujinkan - Budo TaiJutsu. He served as past president of the Israeli Feldenkrais Guild. "My life-long research into movement brings me deeper into the roots of Dr. Feldenkrais' work. I reveal his development as a martial artist and show the links between this process and the development of the Feldenkrais Method. Moshe’s book On Better Judo provides evidence of Feldenkrais' transformational process from a Judo Master to becoming the founder of the Feldenkrais Method.”

In this weekend workshop we'll follow - AND TURN INTO PRACTICE - the principles of the Feldenkrais Method® as Moshe wrote about (when the “Method” did not yet formally exist), explaining to Judokas the principles of efficient and effortless action.Those same principles are now being supported by modern research into the neuroscientific discoveries of movement as the language of the brain.”- Moti Nativ
