Feldenkrais in Sarasota - Bonnie Kissam M.A. - News & Upcoming Classes and Events
September  22, 2019

I am back!  and classes in Sarasota start tomorrow, Monday evening September 23, 5:45 pm, Wednesday morning class is still at 10:00 am.

During my time off, along with travel to Denver and Vermont, I was lucky to travel to Scotland:  Harry Potter land, Golf land, Outlander land.  It was the first time traveling 'over the pond' in over 25 years.  Amazing sights, history and stories filled time away, and amazing sights, people and comfort on the return. Now it's time to move forward.

TOUCH TO INFORM Seminars for 2020 are still being organized but please note the tentative schedule.  We end 2019 with Better Balance I in Sarasota October 18-20 and  Release Your Jaw Seminar in St Pete November 15-17.     This simple yet profound Seminar demonstrates how  a change in tonus of tongue muscles and use of eyes can profoundly release excessively held tension in Neck, jaw and your whole self.  

On the intellectual side, one new article from  Science Magazine talks bout stress and bone health.  We knew that more muscular action on bones helped keep bones healthy.  Now they are suggesting a hormone gets released with any kind of stress?  Hmmm

I look forward to seeing you soon!  Bonnie K

Message from Moshe Feldenkrais, D.Sc..    
" Harmonious, efficient movement prevents wear and tear. More important, however, is what it does to the image of ourselves and our relationship to the world around us." 

Anat Baniel Method®  of Neuromovement
for Children with Special Needs

Anat is offering Podcasts!!

MOST RECENT: Learning Switch

The Anat Baniel Method helps realize improvements that often surprise everyone by demonstrating how the brain can change through supporting a child to move with attention and discern differences. Moving and sensing differences supports early neuron connections in all children. Many children need extra support in the initial random movements and in sensing differences. The Anat Baniel Method works to enhance the natural process for making connections and learning to learn in every child, starting with where they are and moving them forward.  
F or more information:   Special video of Moshe Feldenkrais in 1981, about how he worked with children with Cerebral Palsy.
Moshe Feldenkrais had Anat Baniel, co-work with many of the children he saw and she has since created her own  Method.  I continue to learn from her amazing skills working with children.

"I shared your method with my clients, using only the arms from the demonstration this weekend and every single person commented on how light or rubbery and at ease the arms felt after. This was a fascinating find for me. It makes my work more effective!" A.M., LMT
"This last seminar was a homerun for me. I picked up a lot of important pointers but most importantly the Key  Concepts of maintaining lifelong agility are now hardwired in my brain.  I have a whole new routine using the Feldenkrais Method®  incorporated in with my stretches that I do every day.  My lower back has never been looser. 
I have also had sessions with two clients showing them some of the movements and the concentration needed to sink into the moment."
