PRIMORDIAL CONNECTIONS – Potency via the Tongue, Eyes & Spine in Functional Integration© and Awareness Through Movement©

Feldenkrais Access, sponsored by Lifeworks Somatics, is delighted to present this three-day workshop with David Zemach-Bersin on how to use the movements of the spine, mouth, eyes and tongue to access important neural patterns in Functional Integration and Awareness Through Movement.

This is a powerful approach because the movements of the eyes, mouth, and tongue have functional relationships with the movements of our spine, and deep roots in our evolutionary history. Primitive dynamics and basic action patterns of this sort existed long before homo sapiens, yet are still present in our brain today and essential to our development, organization, ease of movement, and well-being.

You will learn how to communicate with the older, lower, and more reflexive parts of the brain in order to re-organize vital aspects of posture, movement and action. David is excited to share this material with you. The workshop will include Awareness Through Movement lessons to help you restore your own ‘primordial connections’ and Functional Integration skill development via videos to potentiate your work as Feldenkrais Practitioners.

David Zemach-Bersin met Dr Moshe Feldenkrais in 1973 and studied with him for over 10 years in the US, Europe, and Israel. Today David directs Feldenkrais training programmes in New York City, and teaches around the world. He has maintained a private practice since 1977, and is recognized for his contribution to strengthening Dr Feldenkrais’ legacy. David also studied extensively with Gaby Yaron and Yochanon Rywerant. A graduate of UC Berkeley, with post-graduate work in pysiological psychology, he is the co-author of Relaxercise (HarperCollins), and has created many audio and video programmes for Feldenkrais Practitioners. David is a past President of FGNA and co-founder of the Feldenkrais Institute of New York, the Feldenkrais Foundation, and is the founder of Feldenkrais Access. He lives with his family in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
