In the article, "Mind and Body", Dr Feldenkrais wrote,
I believe that the unity of mind and body is an objective reality. They are not just parts somehow related to each other, but an inseparable whole while functioning. A brain without a body could not think; at least, the continuity of mental functions is assured by corresponding motor functions.

This post brings us to an expanded newsletter posting in which several topics are covered.
First, the ATM. Alice, a core member of our team, is an Assistant Trainer and has a very refined way of leading our intention in lessons. She is part of the teaching team and is a real treasure as a teacher. She has shared with us a lesson taught live. Consequently you may notice outside sounds, and occasionally her voice is a bit faint when she is away from the microphone. Never fear - in no time you will again be following her theme of rolling.
Through the gentle process of increasing awareness, you will find your upper torso, shoulders, neck and back become softer, more supple. Then, when you stand, you will discover a new you! Click here to listen to the recording.

Enjoy Cathy Lidster's touching story about her first encounter of the Feldenkrais Method for her mother and how this led her to become a practitioner herself in this short 2-1/2 minute video.
I loved playing outside and got involved in all kinds of activities. I water-skied, wind surfed, kayaked, fished, played in the woods, in and on the lake all summer, every summer. In the winter I skied and built forts with my brothers and sister and just generally had a grand old time.
School wasn’t hard for me. I remember telling my parents at some point that I figured school could be two months long and summer break could be 10 months long — and kids could still get the same amount of school work done. Yes, I had a smart-aleck streak!
Finding My Passion
It's Canada Day and...
We're thrilled to be able to share some great news about the new Canadian Training: Kelowna Feldenkrais Teacher Training, starting June 7, 2020...
The Kelowna Feldenkrais Teacher Training Program is now accredited by the North American Training Accreditation Board (NATAB).
The reason this is a big deal is because all Feldenkrais Trainings must be approved by a regional accreditation board to ensure that the high standards of these trainings are being maintained all over the world.
But what really has us excited is...
The Kelowna Feldenkrais Training started with a dream, and is coming together through daily and weekly work by the team.
