Yvo Mentens Co-organiser / Assistant

I took my first Feldenkrais class more than 30 years ago. I graduated from the 2009 professional training in Paris with Myriam Pfeffer. I studied with some of Moshe Feldenkrais’ first assistants and alumni from the Amherst and San Francisco trainings. I am the co-founder of Feldenkrais Education and teach in our professional training programs in France and Belgium. I served as an active member of the European Feldenkrais organisation ETC, and as a vice-president of the International Feldenkrais Federation.
Before being a Feldenkrais practitioner, I worked in varied professional domains. I holds master degrees in Criminology and Sociology and am a certified Pain Reprocessing Therapist. Previously, I was a TV anchor on national Belgian television and worked internationally as an actor and theater director. 
Next to my private Feldenkrais practice, I am is a professor of physical theatre, comedy and Feldenkrais at the renowned Paris National Conservatory of dramatic art. 
I always strive to imbue my teaching with humor, empowering pedagogy and to create a safe, inclusive and engaging learning environment - a space where everyone can develop their own unique potential.

II graduated from Myriam Pfeffer's training course in Paris in 2011, and became an assistant trainer in 2019. 
Originally from Denmark, I have lived and worked in France since 1990. I first studied anthropology and then pursued a career as a professional actress, before devoting myself fully to the Feldenkrais Method.
I am co-founder of the Institut Beliashe - Centre des Arts et du Potentiel Humain, in Aurillac. For over 25 years, I have researched and developed a method for enriching stage language, through movement, for professional actors. I have initiated and actively participated in innovative arts education work in schools and universities, and assisted several groups of adults and children in different learning processes.
I organize and assist professional training programs in the Feldenkrais Method in France and abroad.

Nikos Dalton Co-organiser / Practitioner

Of English and Danish origin, I grew up in France and studied cinematography in Belgium. I was certified in the Feldenkrais Method® with the Cantal 1 training in France.

My passion for the Feldenkrais Method and languages led me to be co-organiser and translator of the trainings in Brussels and to translate for the first time into French the best-selling book "A busy persons guide to the Feldenkrais method".

In 2021, I co-founded the Forest Lighthouse, a somatic education centre in Brussels. I offer group classes, individual lessons and organise various workshops and trainings in areas directly or indirectly related to the Feldenkrais method.
