What Others Say About The Training:
"Of all the Feldenkrais® trainers I've worked with, I recommend Larry Goldfarb's teacher trainings because I know from my own experience that he can prepare people to understand, communicate and successfully practice the method." - Ellen Sevy, Santa Monica, CA
"When I first met Larry and the Feldenkrais Method® (at a conference on cybernetics I was attending as an electrical engineer), the ATM—and the way he described the method—caught my imagination. It appealed to my sense that difficulties could be overcome by subtle, counter-intuitive methods. After a few years of taking ATM classes and getting FIs with Larry, I jumped at the chance to join the first training he organized. I was following my curiosity, not looking for a new profession. The effects of lessons on me and other students deeply impressed me. I wanted to learn to do that! Through the training process, the counter-intuitive methods became intuitive and spontaneous. ATM's and FI's built my appreciation for what is humanly possible—to recognize when each of us limit ourselves and develop a repertoire of ways to discover alternatives to those limits. Larry’s special gift is to provide immersion in Feldenkrais® lessons accompanied by an incredibly well-structured reflection on how those experiences are generated. His trainings encourage students to find an articulate connection between experience and language that neither spoils the nonverbal learning, nor leaves us speechless about it.
By the end of the training, I knew that I had something to offer people who wanted to move better, to feel better, and to grow into their potential. I had practiced sufficiently and had been supervised enough to employ the methods I had once found so counter-intuitive. At first it wasn’t easy to develop a paying clientele, since I was a stranger living in a sparsely populated area of West Virginia. Four years ago I moved to Charlottesville, VA and began to build a practice. Now I work in a thriving health club, collaborating with massage therapists, personal trainers, and physical therapists. These colleagues form an ever more valuable source of referrals as they understand what the Feldenkrais Method has to offer in conjunction with the services they provide. My success in educating movement professionals about the value of Feldenkrais lessons is a direct result of the cognitve framework Larry brings to trainings and the value he places on being able to speak about our work." - Keith Johnson
