Movement Intelligence (M.I.) has five segments that evolved from Ruthy Alon’s “Bones For Life” Program. Now with the Implementation of Chairs, Walk for Life, Mindful Eating and the final increment “Movement Solutions for Dysfunction”.
These courses can be studied as separate modules, as public workshops or within weekly classes. Her brilliant life’s works add an extraordinary insight for professionals or self-inquiry. Please refer to the Oz M.I. website www.movement-intelligence.com.au
Australia has two Senior Movement Intelligence Trainers Jennifer Groves and Rangimarie Ferguson. Movement Intelligence Australia has 10 BFL trainers and 26 BFL teachers.
Awareness of “Movement Intelligence” is slowly emerging in our Northern Rivers community. Its outcomes are now being recognized with many Doctors and other health professionals referring after seeing the outcomes. I invite you to come and either refresh and explore the practice of spirals, rhythm, isometric resistance and the BFL wrap as tools of somatic integration.
My commitment to influence peoples’ wellness and grace of movement via Ruthy’s brilliant body of work is unwavering. What this commitment has done for me personally and replicate in so many I’ve worked with, is simply amazing. I have had the gift of assisting Dr Alon’s trainings and taught in Taiwan and Sth Korean to establish M.I. in each of their respective countries. Seoul’s Sungshin Women’s University is intending that Feldenkrais and Movement Intelligence will be an elective in the future years Masters curriculum.
Please reignite your passion of somatic inquiry and wellness by joining us in one of our upcoming events or a term of classes or private consults …Ruth turned 85 and I, 62. This is a lifestyle, lifetime embodiment. Come and join yourself and us. It’s about turning up today. Do it for yourself.
