About me and the Feldenkrais Method
Due to historical events I had to leave my home country as a child together with my family and ended up in Switzerland, where I grew up. I studied languages and history at the University of Bern. Historical events brought me back again to the Czech Republic and Prague. Here I worked in banking, then in executive search and devoted time to my family. When I started looking for a new career goal, I was introduced to the Feldenkrais Method and was immediately impressed by the wide range of its use, the fascinating findings and theory behind the method.
Because of my family’s health situation, I had always been interested in the motor development of children and the relationship between the functionality of the brain and movement capabilities. How do these two areas work together and how can the learning process be supported? Immersing myself in the Feldenkrais Method seemed like a logical step and in 2016 I started a four-year training course in Heidelberg, Germany (Feldenkrais-Zentrum Heidelberg) under the guidance of Ulla Schläfke and Roger Russell, who was a student of Dr. Feldenkrais. Today, I am a certified Feldenkrais® Practitioner.
The Feldenkrais Method can help you to rediscover the simplicity and ease of everyday movement. Get rid of your pain and experience a new sense of freedom in your body and mind!
The Feldenkrais Method, developed by Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais, uses movement as a tool for learning new ways of functioning and being in the world. It cultivates and enhances the ability to become aware of our bodies and how we use them. An ingenious sequence of gentle movements helps to explore the functionality of the body and offers a way to improve and expand movement possibilities. The Feldenkrais Method teaches you how to move through life with greater ease and joy.
There are two ways to experience the Feldenkrais Method: In group lessons which are called Awareness Through Movement® and individual lessons called Functional Integration®.

Feldenkrais Lessons in Prague
Individual Lessons or Functional Integration® (FI)
1 lesson: 60 min.
The FI lesson is tailored to your personal needs. Usually, you will lie on a special table, fully clothed. With the help of gentle touches and movements, we explore the functionality of the movements together and look for new possibilities for the body to arrange itself in an improved way. Depending on your theme the lesson can also take place in sitting or standing.
Please wear loose, comfortable clothes and clean socks for the lesson. After the FI lesson, reserve some time just for yourself. The best way to integrate what the body has learned is by taking a walk.

5 FI lessons prepaid: CZK 5500
10 FI lessons prepaid: CZK 10 000
