Stability, Balance and Orientation in Motion with Moti Nativ
Crystal City, Virginia.
If you need to improve your balance, then please sign up immediately  for this workshop. Please note there is also an option to attend one day only. Super Early Bird has been extended to April 15th.

Moti is a certified Feldenkrais practitioner and a well-known and much respected martial artist http://www.bujinkan-israel.co.il/46250/--Moti-Nativ, Since 1975, Moti has focused on the traditional kata of the Bujinkan Schools, analyzing the ancient techniques and performing the Shingen gata (practical combat). Moti is proficient in Budotaijutsu/Ninjutsu, Judo and Krav Maga.
Moti will bring us back to the early work of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais that led him to develop his Method for learning and self-education, starting from his personal research into self-defense, the martial arts and learning to harness one's own power. Moti

 
Moti has developed new lessons and concepts, going through the baby's developmental stages to adult erect posture and movement in daily activity and in a changing environment. 
Testimonials from last year's workshop:
  • "Improved stability, turning more easily - seeing the world in a new way."
  • "I'm a Feldenkrais practitioner and this was such a treat to attend a workshop where all I had to do was pay attention to my own movements - I felt so fluid and alive afterwards."
  • "I feel like I could dance for hours after this!"
  • "It was all I had hoped for and more - Moti is a wonderful teacher. I am walking more easily, and I enjoyed the exciting lessons. I would absolutely come again!"  
  • " I have been taken aback by Moti's ability to teach ATM lessons that are "beginner lessons" In such a profound way that I am having a completely novel experience." 
  • "I was very touched by Moti speaking about how he works with seniors, and he makes it clear that there is an entire range of usefulness to everyone in all of these movements."  
  • "Moti's teaching style is how I imagine Moshe Feldenkrais' teaching style was like!"
  • "It's been really great - I love how he brought in the martial arts and explained it so clearly. I love Moti!"
We will explore more of Moshe Feldenkrais' genius work, discovering and using our real potential and power to move effortlessly and without strain.
Although it will be a challenging weekend, everyone, no matter his/her age or body condition, will safely experience and learn new movements and situations, and gradually improve their Stability, Balance and Orientation
You will come away feeling more stable, balanced and powerful, without engaging unnecessary or parasitic muscular activity.
 
Moti had some very powerful personal insights when he survived a stroke three years ago. He discovered, through experimentation with Feldenkrais principles, that in order to regain stability and balance, you must learn to risk stability. 
He is now stronger and has better balance than ever, and has regained full function.
