The Cantal Feldenkrais Centre
At the Cantal Feldenkrais Centre, the Feldenkrais method is a daily practice. Practitioners give Awareness Through Movement group lessons, as well as individual sessions of Functional Integration. Open courses to the general public are regularly organised. The effervescence due to this daily practice in the center undeniably enriches the training.
The Cantal Feldenkrais Centre also organises advanced training sessions for certified practitioners.
For its excellent quality of life, the Cantal was recently voted amongst the most attractive French departments. The «land of volcanoes» offers ample opportunities for trekking, short or long, with family or by yourself, on foot, on horseback, on skis or by bike, in a breathtaking nature. The entire region of Auvergne (of which Cantal is a department) was lately elected by Lonely planet as part of the top 10 places to visit in the world!
