Language  

Our courses have always welcomed students from many different countries. With this professional training, we are again addressing an international audience. Biel is a bilingual region (French and German), which is why these two languages are the most present in our training. Nevertheless, the courses of this training will be given in English. However, we are aware that this may lead to difficulties of understanding for some at the beginning. Nevertheless, French and German speaking team members will be present in each segment of the training to support those who need it. In addition, we offer regular discussions and exercises in small groups in German, French and English. If you have any questions about your English level, please do not hesitate to contact us.  

Professional Benefits  

Feldenkrais professional training offers graduates the opportunity to enter an increasingly important international and interdisciplinary profession. The Feldenkrais Method lies at the intersection of complementary and holistic medicine and is increasingly recognized in today's health care system. As the method can be applied wherever improved quality and flexibility of movement, thinking and learning are desired, graduates are integrating the knowledge gained from the Feldenkrais approach into their own professions, often with success. The Feldenkrais Method offers both an in-depth personal development process and effective approaches in the field of pain management, neurological and orthopedic difficulties, in competitive sports, in a different relationship to aging and in our daily lives in general. This unique combination gives the Feldenkrais Method a pioneering role in the efforts to improve health in the 21st century. 

Participants

The training is open to anyone who wishes to bring new perspectives to their current work or who is looking for a new and rewarding profession. We are particularly sensitive to the diverse backgrounds of our students, who differ in terms of knowledge, interests, and life and career paths. Previous training programs have welcomed both seasoned professionals and those with no previous training. This program is also open to those who want to do something for their health and well-being and are looking for an intensive and safe learning environment. 

The Feldenkrais Method can be applied in many areas and situations. It is relatively young, which still encourages the development of new areas of application. 

Feldenkrais teachers - whether or not they have their own practice - are active in fields such as rehabilitation, body and occupational therapy, motor development, psychology, and sports education - working with teachers, trainers, athletes, artists, singers, musicians, dancers, actors, etc. No special prior knowledge is required to enter the training program. We are looking for a balanced learning community that reflects the different professional experiences, training and fields of application of the method.
