been teaching the Feldenkrais Method in Israel and other countries for
over ten years. As a child who suffered from asthma, I first learned about
the method, when my mother helped me tremendously with individual lessons
in easing my breathing problems. My mother, Dr. Chava Shelhav, is a senior
Feldenkrais instructor, who for many years has trained teachers in Israel
and other countries in the Method. Through our collaboration, I've acquired
substantial know-how, and together we've given professional training programmes
in Israel and Germany.
1987, after deliberating between continuing my art studies or choosing
a different future profession, I started studying the Feldenkrais Method
in London. Because the method can be learned in different places around
the world, I divided my learning period between Germany, the UK and Israel,
and so was able to experience learning in different cultures and languages.
to Israel in 1990 and began teaching group classes for the general public,
as well as individual lessons.
privileged to participate in setting up Israel's first Department of Complementary
Medicine, at the Assaf Ha'Rofeh Medical Centre. By combining the Feldenkrais
method with conventional medicine and complementary medicine, I gained
considerable experience in ways of perceiving human beings, and of understanding
the concepts "health" and "illness" in alternative and conventional terms
experience led me to homeopathy studies, which in turn enabled me substantial
knowledge and new ways of thinking about understanding people. Although
I don't give homeopathic treatment, everything I learned is of great practical
assistance in my way of thinking and reflections.
gained much experience in group and individual work, I then turned to training
future Feldenkrais instructors, in Israel and other countries. Currently
I'm teaching 4-year study programmes that train instructors in the method.
They are enriching, varied programmes which combine personal development
and professional skills.
the past few years, I've become very interested in working with children
and babies; this offers an educational challenge in creating a firm educational
basis and high-quality learning patterns (learning how to learn) which
can serve the children in coming years. The technique combines movement,
awareness and cognitive abilities.
learned from experience that many problems that crop up in later year stem
from early childhood, and are the result of impaired motor and cognitive
development processes during infancy and early childhood.
greatest challenge that I've encountered is in disseminating the method
over the Internet. Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais's dream was to spread the method
throughout the world via satellite transmissions; in the early 80s, he
already had a technological vision which would be fulfilled two decades
inherent potential of distance learning by means of transmitting pictures
and voices over the Net can let people all over the world become aware
of the method, and the learning and development it brings.
