The Ramat-Aviv Feldenkrais Center
Situated in a beautiful residential neighborhood in the northern part of Tel-Aviv, adjacent to the campus of The Tel-Aviv University, The Ramat-Aviv Feldenkrais Center offers private and community services. The center reaches out to the community offering 8 Awareness through Movement classes a week, for all ages, at an affordable price. The center also offers private Functional Integration lessons, tailored to individual needs, from newborns to the elderly. The center provides advanced workshops for Certified Feldenkrais Practitioners.
Functional Integration lessons
Awareness through Movement lessons are verbally guided movement processes intended to increase one's kinesthetic sensitivity and awareness. The lessons evolve around the exploration of a "theme" or a movement "function", revealing their many components and variations. The exploration is done effortlessly and with ease, providing a positive and gratifying learning process.
Functional Integration lessons are designed to meet an individual's needs, attuned to each individual's unique capabilities to learn and improve. Through movements that are guided both verbally and by touch, the acuity of the nervous system is enhanced. A finer kinesthetic perception of one's own habits leads to greater ease, efficiency, awareness, and control. Easier posture, increased mobility, clearer stability and lightness of movement and thought are among the qualities improved by these lessons.
Since 2012 the center offers advanced education for Certified Feldenkrais Practitioners through one-on-one professional guidance, mentoring and support, and advanced workshops and seminars on various topics. The center offers on-line workshops based on Dr. Feldenkrais' original Amherst Functional Integration lessons. The center works in collaboration with the Israeli Feldenkrais Guild, presenting workshops at conferences organized by the guild.
"I am part of an on-line mentoring group with Raz. On top of knowing his stuff - he is kind, gentle, and very insightful.
This has been the most effective learning experience I have had since graduating from my training in 2005."
