2012 Conference Workshop

Open To: Public / Practitioners / Trainees


Cost: $135 for this workshop only or $475 for 5-Day Package rate


Workshop participants will learn Awareness Through Movement® and Functional Integration® lessons that help people with MS to function better, addressing common issues of fatigue, spasm, foot drop, and balance. Susan Dillon was diagnosed with MS in 1994. Four years later, she completed her Feldenkrais® practitioner training. Afterwards, she felt well enough to undertake a 12-day trek in Nepal. She continues to hike whenever possible, and has found a steady diet of ATM® lessons has kept further major relapses at bay. Beth Rubenstein has worked with MS patients with ATM and FISM for many years. Together they will share their experience with participants and guide them through their way of approaching MS.
