The Faculty

As Educational Directors, Angel Di Benedetto and Richard Corbeil are responsible for the content and format of the Seattle Eastside Feldenkrais Teacher Trainings.

Angel studied with Dr. Feldenkrais, graduated the Amherst Feldenkrais training in 1983 and has been in full practice since then. Additionally, she gathered extensive teaching experience, training hundreds of new Practitioners in over 50 different training programs worldwide. Her teaching focuses on developing creativity to enhance artistic expression, self-confidence, personal awareness, and one’s quality of life.

With an extensive background in music performance, education, and clinical rehabilitation, Richard has been doing considerable teaching in multidisciplinary clinics, professional training programs and private seminars; contributing his unique understanding of the method in the related fields of personal development, health, rehabilitation, and the performing arts. Richard has also been the Administrative Director of all SEFT trainings since 2002.

Angel and Richard will both be involved 100% of the time. When not working actively as Trainers, they will assist the process, assuring continuity of the program and the communications between teachers, students and staff. They will monitor the curriculum and interact with the students to personally assess their needs and sustain their progress.

World-renowned Trainers Paul Rubin and Alan Questel will join the teaching team, contributing their insights, dedication and experience to the SEFT V training.

With a Ph.D. in Human and Organization Systems, Lynn Bursten brings to our training over 25 years of experience in Adult Experiential Learning, Organizational Development and Community-Building. Lynn will supervise our support staff, coordinate community and student administrative activities, as well as provide learning process consultation.

Training Objectives

SEFT Trainings emphasizes a practical and intuitive understanding of the Method; the process is experiential rather than academic. You will intuitively gain knowledge of human action by exploring lessons designed to evoke crucial stages of development, and sense the functional possibilities of the human body based on your own discoveries.

We will use ATM®, FI®, lectures and experiential practices as vehicles for the assimilation of the principles and concepts underlying the Method. We will also cultivate additional aptitudes such as fine sensorial perception, observational skills and communication skills (verbal and nonverbal), as well as qualities to promote self-confidence, self-reliance, and to support creative and flexible thinking.

The training environment will be safe, stimulating and cooperative in order to assure the best learning conditions and the finest preparation for the long-term practice of the Feldenkrais Method.


Graduates of the SEFT V training may be eligible to become certified teachers and practitioners. Certificates will be honored worldwide.
