Feldenkrais Method


Vasso graduated as a practitioner in the Feldenkrais Method, following the Feldenkrais International Training Programme “Greece I”, under the ed.direction of Ruty Bar (2012-1015).
Αs a certified Feldenkrais practitioner has been regularly teaching group and individual Feldenkrais classes since 2015 in Athens and Syros Island and organizes seminars worldwide. Her interests lie in how the F.method can become one of the tools for supporting and inspiring dance and physical activities in all stages of school education, practice for performers (musicians, dancers, actors).
The Feldenkrais Method® of somatic education uses gentle movement and directed attention to help people learn new and more effective ways of living the life they want. You can increase your ease and range of motion, improve your flexibility and coordination, and rediscover your innate capacity for graceful, efficient movement. Since how you move is how you move through life, these improvements will often enhance your thinking, emotional regulation, and problem-solving capabilities.

The Feldenkrais Method (Short Description)

The Feldenkrais Method is based on principles of physics, biomechanics, and an empirical understanding of learning and human development. Moshe Feldenkrais said, “We move according to our perceived self-image.” By expanding your perception and increasing awareness, you will become more aware of your habits and tensions and develop new ways of moving. By increasing sensitivity, the Feldenkrais Method assists you to live your life more fully, efficiently, and comfortably.

You can experience the Feldenkrais Method in two ways. Awareness Through Movement® lessons are taught in a group setting, with students following the verbal instructions of the teacher. Functional Integration® sessions are one on one lessons where the fully clothed student is guided through touch, movement and verbal instruction.
