Due to the unpredictable circumstances caused by the COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic, the Emotional Body® instructional team has created a virtual online learning environment for July 2020! We look forward to offering the live in-person Asheville courses again in 2021.

Our July 2020 training is a tailored series of live virtual courses designed specifically for an online community. Remote sessions will provide small groups with an intimate teacher-to-student ratio learning environment when experiencing the emotional effector patterns. Larger group sessions held for discussions and Feldenkrais lessons will help promote community and sharing ideas with a cohesive group. Scheduling plans will consider maximizing opportunities for reaching as many of our international community members as possible, while also taking into consideration work-at-home situations and varying time zones.

Our Emotional Body instructors are well experienced with online instructional methods. Laura Bond has offered virtual Emotional Body private lessons, small group study seminars and webinars since 2010. In March 2020 she moved all her university classes to synchronous remote learning platforms. Lavinia Plonka has taught Feldenkrais lessons online since 2010, and is currently teaching virtual somatic seminars with the Shift Network. As co-host of the international Feldenkrais Awareness Summit, she has worked extensively in online presentations, as well as interactive panels and events.  Jessica Beck offers Feldenkrais lessons online, and maintains a strong web presence with her blogs and interviews, in addition to her projects as an audio producer and broadcast journalist with BBC London.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about your Emotional Body! Enrollment will be limited within each course to ensure the quality of the learning environment. Once the course is full, you can join the waiting list.
