We are thrilled to announce that David accepted our invitation to come back to Toronto after a 20 year hiatus, to present this acclaimed advanced workshop for Practitioners!
In Body and Mature Behaviour, Moshe Feldenkrais gives anxiety a central position in his discourse on the human condition, learning and development. He offers a unified theory of anxiety, drawing brilliant parallels between the similarity of our reaction to the fear of falling, the withdrawal of an organism from a strong stimulus, and the body pattern of anxiety.
In this Advanced Training with David Zemach-Bersin, we will look closely at the current understanding of 'anxiety' in both neuroscience and physiology, and see how this knowledge can impact on our practice of the Feldenkrais Method. When combined with this new knowledge, we will see that both Awareness Through Movement and Functional Integration are uniquely situated to be very effective tools in the amelioration of anxiety.
In addition, you will learn how Dr. Feldenkrais utilized primitive synergistic muscular relationships to restore the nervous system's ability to evoke a state of parasympathetic dominance. You will discover how to create a more balanced internal organization, in which breathing becomes slow and full, movement becomes easier and more pleasurable, and acture spontaneously finds a new, healthier equilibrium.
