"The slow, gentle, and graceful movements that comprise the Feldenkrais Method® have much to offer the dance world." (Nancy Galeota-Wozny)
Embark upon a journey of self-exploration, intriguing discovery, and new movement expression. In this 3-day workshop, Jacqueline Rubinstein helps somatic practitioners and dancers of all types explore non-mechanistic strategies for repatterning their subconscious habits. The Feldenkrais Method® is a form of somatic education that builds kinesthetic awareness through gentle movement and directed attention to increase ease and functionality. The pedagogical strategies of Feldenkrais (attending to oneself slowly, gently, quietly, and playfully) bring out new, liberating movement options for improvisational sensitivity and inner connection. "Our heightened sensibility has the potential to change the way we see the world around us and to render us more capable to act intentionally and effectively." (Sylvie Fortin).

Jacqueline Rubinstein has studied the Feldenkrais Method for eight years with David Zemach-Bersin, one of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais’ original American students and Feldenkrais teacher for 35 years. She graduated from the Feldenkrais Professoinal Training Program (NYC) in 2011, and continues to be personally mentored by David Zemach-Bersin. She earned a BA in Dance Choreography from Wesleyan University. An avid teacher, choreographer, and improvisational mover, she has led hundreds of somatic education explorations. She came to the Feldenkrais Method after a double-impact concussion (sports injury) and a pinched nerve in her neck (arts administration injury). Through her dedicated study of the Feldenkrais Method, her pain was relieved within weeks and it felt like magic! She is eager to share this extraordinary modality with others.
