Z 2018 Conference

Program Change

Are you registered for Moti Nativ's Workshop "Practical Feldenkrais" at the upcoming Feldenkrais Conference? If so, please read on...

We regret to inform you that Moti Nativ had to withdraw from presenting at this year's National Conference as his wife is undergoing surgery and he needs to stay by her side in Tel Aviv. He sends his sincere apologies to each of you.

There are three other workshops you can register for, including one we have just added taught by Lavinia Plonka, who has generously stepped in at the last minute. Her workshop is titled "Your Potent Self: Resilience and Joy Through Movement". Here is the description.

Whether your "avowed or unavowed dream" is to step into power, or simply to maintain balance, the Feldenkrais Method offers tools for accessing both flexibility and strength. This workshop will center you, literally, by exploring the role of the pelvis in movement, spontaneity and action. We will explore falling and recovery, standing your ground and rolling with life's challenges with Awareness Through Movement lessons and related activities. You are invited (but not required) to bring a life challenge or goal to the workshop – we will see how to somatically eliminate perceived limitations and embark on new adventures.

Lavinia Plonka's movement education experience runs from pratfalls to imaginary walls as a mime, real falls in aikido, and 25 years as a Feldenkrais teacher. She is an Assistant Trainer and author of many books and audio programs about the Feldenkrais Method.

She teaches internationally and is director of Asheville Movement Center in NC. www.laviniaplonka.com

What defines a transformative experience? What is the role of the Feldenkrais
® practitioner in the process of transformation? How much of our work is science, how much is art? Immerse yourself in these potent questions at the 2018 Conference.
