Training FAQ

Q: What is unique about A View from the Beginning?

A: This training is organized around a very specific sequence of movement properties. Its framework gives students a focus for learning both in the training and in their practice.

Q: Why a developmental model?

A: In The Case of Nora, Moshe Feldenkrais wrote of accelerating learning by “presenting the experience under the conditions in which the human brain learned in the first place.” Developmental orientation allows us to investigate the properties that guided our learning “in the first place,” but this time with a new level of  awareness, one that allows us to apply that learning to the learning of others. It focuses our learning in the training and provides a disciplined framework for working with others.

Q: Can this developmental approach can be helpful if I am working with adults?

A: Yes. The underlying properties of movement that drive children’s development continue to organize us throughout the lifespan. They are potent for working with both children and adults.

Q: Who is this training program for?

A: This program is designed for third- and fourth-year trainees and for practitioners who would like to deepen their understanding of the Feldenkrais Method®.
