Moving, Feeling, Sensing, Thinking Establish a relationship of trust with a practitioner
How does the session work?
The Feldenkrais practitioner, using his or her hands and a gentle, non-invasive touch, guides the student in exploring new movement patterns. Or simply help them refine pre-existing movements.
The student can lie comfortably on a table, sitting or standing. Supports such as cushions, rollers, mats, and foam can be used to facilitate the learning process.
The Feldenkrais practitioner's manipulations reflect back to the student the way he or she organizes his or her body and actions. By using skilled and gentle hands, the practitioner establishes a sense of safety and a supportive relationship. By cooperating with the unconscious mind, new possibilities for movement can be formed in small steps.

I initiated and actively participated in innovative artistic education for the curriculum of schools and teacher training colleges. I co-founded the Institut Beliashe - Centre des Arts et du Potentiel Humain in France.
I co-organise the trainings in Cantal, France and work as an assistant in both Cantal and Brussels.
Yvo Mentens Co-organiser
Originally from Belgium, I was introduced to the Feldenkrais method through my work in physical theatre, more than 25 years ago. I was certified in 2009 in Paris, as a professional practitioner, under the direction of Myriam Pfeffer, and I have been an assistant trainer since 2016.
I teach at the Conservatoire National d'Art Dramatique de Paris CNSAD, where, in addition to theatre, I set up a major Feldenkrais course programme with ATM and FIs for students.
I was, for several years, an active member of the board of the French Feldenkrais Guild, of the Eurotab ETC Council, and served as vice president of the Feldenkrais IFF International Federation.
