In just a few years, babies and young children transform from unformed beings to incredibly potent learners. This astounding process is self-organized. It happens largely without overt adult instruction. In this series we will use movement explore lessons from the developmental process, and uncover structures of developmental play that lay the foundation for lifelong learning.

Beginners and those with previous Feldenkrais experience welcome.

You will learn to:

  • Rediscover how it feels to move like a baby

  • Re-connect to a sense of ease, curiosity, flexibility and possibility

  • Understand a baby’s motor learning process & its relationship to other areas of development

  • Support the learning the development of babies and young children in your personal and professional life
