From the moment it was created, the Obrador de Moviments (Movement Workshop) has embraced personal development through somatic techniques and the art of movement.
Sara Sanguino and Hervé Costa, the directors of Obrador, apply the benefits of somatics to the field of dance on a daily basis. Since 2016, their school has been offering the Barcelona Accredited Feldenkrais Professional Training programme, a EuroTAB* certified course.
The programme’s teaching director, Beatriz Walterspiel, is an internationally renowned coach and a direct disciple of Moshé Feldenkrais. Beatriz Walterspiel is known worldwide for her particular way of teaching the Feldenkrais Method. Currently, she directs several training programmes across Europe and has been teaching in Barcelona for more than 15 years.
Her team is made up of internationally recognised coaches and assistants.
This programme provides a high level of skills and allows students to understand and apply the different approaches used in the method: Self-Awareness through Movement (group classes) and Functional Integration (individual classes).
In this way, the school is able to pursue its goals while still keeping in touch with a source of rich and useful resources that enrich the learning and development processes of each professional or student. In response to the demands of the awareness through movement process, our team at Obrador de Moviments coupled with our international partners have extend
ed our offer: for 2020, we have launched a series of seminars and intensive courses.
Our training cycles are organised into three phases:
Public and pre-training seminars
Aimed at those who wish to become familiar with the method, recognise the benefits of intensive practice and learn how to apply this method to other professional areas.
A learning process focused on personal development in terms of self-awareness. This enables students to work with other people using the two approaches of the Feldenkrais Method: Self-Awareness through Movement (group classes) and Functional Integration (individual classes).
Aimed at Feldenkrais-qualified teachers or students who completed last year’s accredited training, to guide them through their journey of self-exploration and ongoing training.
