Videos > Jacek Paszkowski - The Feldenkrais Method

About the talk:

Through a series of small, gentle movements and development of the art of noticing, Feldenkrais practitioner Jacek Paszkowski talks about how the Feldenkrais method allows people to discover themselves and make a difference in how they live their lives.

After graduating from the Academy of Physical Education in Warsaw, Jacek spent eight years working and studying in the US. Not fully satisfied with traditional physiotherapy education and the outcomes it offered, he began his search for alternative approaches. At that point he got involved with Feldenkrais Method® of Somatic Education, which he studies and teaches extensively.

After returning to Poland he established the Academy of Conscious Movement, promoting development of human potential through conscious movement and guided movement of awareness. This approach (using the Feldenkrais Method) helps people to gain tools to learn more efficiently, enhances wellbeing and develops awareness as a mean to live a happier, healthier life. Jacek is promoting this approach to education among healthcare practitioners, psychologists, musicians and teachers and a whole array of people who want to enrich their lives.
