2016 Feldenkrais Method® Conference
July 7-10, 2016 in Asheville, NC
Make this your ultimate weekend get-away/mini-vacation in beautiful Asheville, NC!
You may already be familiar with the Feldenkrais Method®, or have heard the name, but are not sure what it's all about. The Feldenkrais Method accesses the brain’s ability to change, improving physical and cognitive performance through uniquely pleasurable movement lessons. Research shows that movement which encourages more complexity and variation creates new neural pathways resulting in:
· Better balance
· Greater range of motion
· Enhanced vitality
· More energy
· Increased cognitive skills
· Improved performance – in sports, the arts, and daily living
Modern neuroscience is finally catching up to the revolutionary ideas of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais, who understood more than a half century ago what is finally being discussed today: that the human brain can change, learn and improve throughout our entire lifetime.
At this year's Feldenkrais conference in Asheville, there will be plenty of workshops open to the public! That means YOU can come and spend a fantastic weekend and attend Feldenkrais workshops covering a range of topics:
The Feldenkrais Method® for performing artists, for musicians, ways to address stabilityand balance, better walking, for martial artists,stress management, using the Method for bicycling or foam rolling, and mindfulness meditation. Start each day with Awareness Through Movement classes before workshops begin.
Aside from powerful learning opportunities, you will also enjoy special events (Functional Medicine's Patrick Hanaway is this year's Keynote speaker), not to mention experiencing the beauty of Asheville and the Blue Ridge Mountains, one of the hottest destinations in the country. We have secured affordable housing so you can enjoy the conference without breaking your pocketbook.
Please go to our Public page, where you can access all the information you need (program, lodging, transportation, fees, etc.) Note which presenters' workshops you want to attend and which lodging option you want to select. Hope to see you there - it will be great fun!
US Spelling Bee: 'Feldenkrais' and 'Gesellschaft' bring another tie
It was the words "Feldenkrais" and "Gesellschaft" that made Jairam Hathwar and Nihar Janga co-champions of the US Scripps National Spelling Bee. Nihar, 11, and Jairam, 13, went head-to-head for 25 rounds with the annual contest going late into the night in Maryland. "I can't say anything. I'm just in fifth grade," said Nihar - the youngest champion since 2002 - after his win.
The Feldenkrais Method® might be the answer for you! Feldenkrais is a mental and physical improvement system based on discovering natural, easy, efficient and pleasurable ways of moving your mind and body. It is an advanced educational approach to well-being using your brain’s amazing capacity to reorganize yourself. It is based on the premise that all human beings have the potential to learn to do everything they do in easier, less effortful and more satisfying ways than is their habit.
