Feldenkrais® and Anat Baniel(sm) Workshop

Venue: Šestinski vijenac 2, Zagreb, Croatia
May 25 – 28, 2019
Instructor: Nancy Aberle, Lynn Bullock and support team of Feldenkrais and ABM practitioners
Languages: English and Croatian

This workshop is intended for:
- Parents of children with developmental difficulties and disabilities
- Parents who want to help their children improve motor coordination and cognitive development
- Professionals who work with children but also adults (physiotherapist, special education teachers, kinesiologists, educators, physicians, Feldenkrais practitioners and others)
- Everyone who wishes to enhance their health and well-being through somatic and neuro-motor learning


For the eight time in Zagreb, instructors Nancy Aberle and Lynn Bulock are running a seminar on the techniques and principles of the Moshe Feldenkrais® and Anat Baniel(sm) methods, and how they can be implemented in terms of working with children and adults.
During the group lectures, special emphasis will be placed on the process of somatic learning. We will be discovering how to learn and improve motor, sensory and cognitive functioning using lessons that focus on movement with attention.
• Perceiving differences is the basis of any kind of learning, regardless of age, and the extent of motor control, be it slight or highly developed, if one is able to perceive the differences, this can improve their functioning
• When the nervous system of a baby, child or adult can easier perceive fine differences in themselves, their motor coordination and their relationship to their environment, the brain can more easily generate new possibilities for more exacting action and for overcoming limitations
• The grater our ability to differentiate, the more capacity we have for future choice. Less differentiation usually means less awareness and less choice

The workshop consists of two parts: the seminary and clinical:
25 and 26 May two-day seminar for parents and professionals (incl. Feldenkrais & ABM practitioners):
theoretical and practical part for parents and professionals under the guidance of the instructors, Nancy Aberle an Lynn Bullock.

Parents experience:

„Our son's rehabilitation can be divided into the period before and after Feldenkrais and Anat Baniel methods. Their nine principles unmasked most misconceptions regarding therapeutical activities that we, as parents, were guided by. They offered us healthier and more efficient alternative. The psychology of efficient and enjoyable learning, combined with the insight into basic principles of neurological functioning, gave us a completely different perspective.“
