Announcing the beginning of a new training Program in the Baltimore/Washington area: The Feldenkrais Training Program of Baltimore. The Educational Director will be David Zemach-Bersin, and the Program Organizer and Continuity Assistant will be Paris Kern. The program will debut a radically new structure, significantly different than the common schedule used in FGNA approved training programs. The program, starting August 25-31, 2012, will introduce an enriched curriculum that will include an additional 20 days of training to the normal 160 day program.
The Feldenkrais Training Program of Baltimore will feature an expanded schedule of 180 days. This will be is a full four-weeks longer than the required number of training days, taking place within the same four year span. We believe that this enhanced schedule will make a valuable difference in the quality of our student’s experience. It will insure that our students have greater opportunity and support as they develop their skills and confidence. The longer schedule will provide built-in time for more FIsm and ATM® supervisions, and additional time in which to study specialized areas such as Anatomy with Olena Nitefor, M.A., Applications of Motor Development Theory in Working with Children with Sheryl Field, M.A., and Understanding and Working with Pain with Deborah Bowes, PT, Ph.D.
As Educational Director, David Zemach-Bersin (picture on right) brings a profound depth of knowledge and appreciation of the Feldenkrais Method. A distinguished student of Moshe Feldenkrais and an accomplished proponent of his work, David has an exceptionally warm and generous teaching style. He is committed to providing students with not only the conditions necessary for the deep transformation that is possible with the Feldenkrais Method, but also the understanding and skills necessary in order to become first-class practitioners. David enjoys the opportunity to share the spirit and form of what he learned during 12 years of studying directly with Dr. Feldenkrais in Israel, Europe, and the US.
As Organizer and Continuity Assistant, Paris Kern is supremely capable, and has been the primary Assistant for the last two Baltimore/Washington training programs. She is a highly experienced Practitioner, and will lend her considerable expertise to the creation of a superb training environment and learning experience.
The new Feldenkrais Training Program of Baltimore will have a weekend-oriented format, and will begin during the last week of August 2012, with a 7-day introductory segment. Each year, we will meet for five-six 4-day weekends, with longer segments in the summer and spring. Baltimore is a calm, comfortable, and very affordable city, an excellent place in which to study the Feldenkrais Method.
Additional Trainers will include: Deborah Bowes, PT, Ned Dwelle from Germany, Aliza Stewart, M.A., and Ruty Bar, M.A. from Israel. This is a team of mature, experienced and highly skilled teachers, most of whom studied directly with Dr. Feldenkrais. We are proudly joined by the talented Assistant Trainers: Sheryl Field and Olena Nitefor.
