Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Life throws many things at us to negotiate over 4 years so Feldenkrais trainings take this into account. There are many options…

 

What if I can’t start in January?

We obviously encourage everyone to start as close to the beginning of the training as possible but life is not always as accommodating! Missed time will need to be made up (see below) but people may join the training up until Segment 2 (31st March 2014).

 

What if I miss a day? What if I need to miss a segment?

The Educational Director (Julie Peck) is responsible for ensuring the continuity of the trainees’ learning and how participants make up any missed time is always decided in consultation with the ED but as a general rule:

  • The sessions are recorded so you will have access to CDs and DVDs of missed days.
  • One or two ‘make up’ segments (5 days) are usually offered in the first 6 - 9 months of the training and always after the last segment so that people can catch up. Although this is dependent upon numbers, they usually occur.

What if I am unsure about making the commitment to the whole programme?

You are very welcome to attend the first one or two segments and make up your mind as you go… The application process is the same (see course brochure and application form).

Can I do the training out of personal interest and without the intention of becoming a practitioner?

Yes – many people do Feldenkrais trainings for this reason. We have also opened segment 1 (6th - 24th January 2014) to those who would like not to do the whole training programme but would like an experienced of being immersed in the Method for three weeks.

And … having said that… sometimes those who choose to do the training for personal learning change their minds at the end of the training and decide to teach group classes or see people privately or both. The path is open…
