Bruxelles, ma belle
From its prestigious European commission, to its vast animated markets, through its medieval Grand-Place, its large flower-filled parks and its famous flea markets, Brussels has the potential to surprise you.
Located at a stone's throw from Paris, London, Cologne and Amsterdam, Brussels offers an incomparable quality of life. Pleasant and accessible, it is full of museums, cafés, restaurants, galleries, chocolate shops and is ranked among the greenest cities in Europe.
The Pedagogical team
Like the Feldenkrais method, we believe in a rich and diversified approach to learning. For this reason, we bring together experienced trainers with a wide range of expertises to offer the best possible training.
Ilan Jacobson, is an experienced trainer, valued for his teaching of exceptional pedagogical quality. Very open to his students, he shares his passion for the method with rigor, generosity and good humor. Ilan, a former Tai Chi and Judo teacher, started the Feldenkrais Method as part of his judo practice. He trained with Chava Shelhav and was the assistant of the legendary Yochanan Rywerant (close associate of Moshe Feldenkrais), before becoming a trainer himself. He deepened his understanding of the method with other assistants of Moshe Feldenkrais like Alon Talmi, Eli Wadler or Mia Segal.
For several years he worked in the European and World federations, ETC (EuroTab Council) and IFF (International Feldenkrais Federation). He is involved in many Feldenkrais training programs around the world. He published the famous "Alexander Yanai" lessons, the 550 ATM lessons created by Moshe Feldenkrais. He is the director of the Feldenkrais Institute in Tel Aviv, where he has passionately led, for more than 25 years, group classes, individual sessions and advanced-trainings for practitioners.
Ruty Bar, MA, graduated from the Rubin Dance and Music Academy in Jerusalem and earned a Masters in Movement Therapy from Boston's Lesley University. Her master's thesis focused on mind-body connection and the use of the Feldenkrais method to treat people with special needs.
After an accident, Ruty met Moshe Feldenkrais for individual lessons that inspired her to join the first Professional Feldenkrais Training sponsored by the International Feldenkrais Federation in 1984. Ruty is one of the most experienced trainers in Europe and has been pedagogical director of trainings in Israel, Italy, Greece, Japan, Japan and Seoul - South Korea.
"As a dancer, I moved to the rhythm of the outer music. Dr. Feldenkrais taught me to move to the rhythm of my inner music "(Ruty Bar).
