The Feldenkrais Method
a workshop with Scott Clark
«Movement is Life. Life is a process.
Improve the quality of this process and you improve the quality of life itself.» (Moshe Feldenkrais)
About Scott Clark:
Scott is a Feldenkrais trainer based in London. He teaches in Feldenkrais professional training programs in the UK, Europe and the US, and supervises other Feldenkrais practitioners. His background is fairly diverse, starting with a BSc in mathematics before going on to an MA in dance.
As a dancer, he performed internationally. He was a founding member of the Siobhan Davies Dance Company and taught the company for its first six years. Scott started his Feldenkrais training in 1987, and after graduating, he has developed a successful practice in London. He has worked with dancers and musicians, people with severe pain or disability, but especially with ordinary people who want to live and grow. He has succeeded in making the Feldenkrais Method well known in the UK, devoting much of his time to the Feldenkrais Guild UK, as well as to international Feldenkrais organisations.
The Norwegian Feldenkrais Guild is very happy to be able to invite Scott to Bergen, in cooperation with Carte Blanche! In addition to this public workshop, which is open to all (no previous experience with the method is needed), Scott will be teaching Feldenkrais practitioners and the dancers of the company.
This is Scott’s own description of the method, from his website, feldenkraislondon.com:
«The Feldenkrais Method® is an approach to learning and action, through the medium of movement. By improving our movement, posture and breathing, we can become more powerful, flexible and coordinated; we can awaken our innate capacity for comfort and grace. But more than that, we can learn about ourselves at the deepest level, and our potential for creatively meeting new challenges.»

About the Feldenkrais Method:
Israeli engineer, scientist and judo master Moshe Feldenkrais (1904-1984) found a way to utilize principles of human movement and development to create new, more efficient patterns of self-use. In his Awareness Through Movement lessons he provides a sophisticated environment for learning which includes all senses and informs the nervous system, giving us opportunities to re-organize our movements.
The relaxed, gentle movements of the Feldenkrais Method will improve your balance and strength. They are especially beneficial for decreasing pain and relieving tension. The method can also be a resource for learning how to achieve better musical, artistic and athletic performance, as well as for recovery from trauma or prevention of injuries.
Some of the other benefits commonly experienced are:
• More ease and pleasure in movement and physical activities
• Increased mental clarity and creativity
• Increased range of movement
• Improved coordination and posture
• Learning how to achieve more with less effort
