David Zemach-Bersin gives a workshop

The Arts & Design Research Incubator will host “Awareness Through Movement: Exploring Applied Neuroplasticity and the Feldenkrais Approach to Motor Learning” with David Zemach-Bersin, co-founder of the Feldenkrais Institute of New York, with two events on Wednesday, November 9. There will be a discussion about an effective therapeutic approach to changing neural patterns in the brain's motor centers at 12-1:15 p.m. in 16 Borland Building, and a workshop at 4–6 p.m. on the Playhouse Theatre stage.

David Zemach-Bersin studied for over a decade with Curie Institute physicist Moshe Feldenkrais, and has been one of the world’s leading developers of the Feldenkrais Method for more than forty years. The Feldenkrais Method is a movement-based education method that proponents claim can reorganize connections between the motor cortex and the body, thus improving body movement and wellbeing.

The discussion does not require registration. The workshop, which requires registration, is currently full, but you can add your name to the waiting list by contacting Sandi Carroll at slc58@psu.edu. The waiting list will be filled at the door 10 minutes prior to the event start time in the order in which the RSVPs are received.

According to Carroll, ADRI program manager, there is a good chance those on the waiting list and drop-ins will be able to attend, due to no-shows. Bring your own yoga mat, if possible.

All events are free and open to the public.
