“The most fun workshop I have been too. I’ll explore the possibilities for a long time.” Parent, Melbourne workshop.

Movement My First Language is a project for adults who live or work with children with special needs. Build your confidence in using movement as a means of empowering learning.

Learning through movement is a language that children are experts in. From birth babies begin to learn about themselves and their world through their sensory intelligence. Movement My First Language taps into sensation based wisdom that all children have, and respects the incredible abilities of the plasticity of the brain. This approach to working with children offers more opportunities for them to learn, grow and develop at their own speed, time and abilities.

Covid-19 update: workshops that were taking place in Europe this year have been cancelled. Movement My First Language is an international project delivered by Feldenkrais Practitioners living in Australia, Belgium & the UK. Getting all three practitioners in the same country, in the same room with participants is impossible at the moment. Technology is great, but some things are better in person, delivering Movement My First Language is one of them. The team are in regular contact, as & when the global situation changes this page will be updated. If you’re interested in the project please contact us & we’ll start a conversation.

The project is founded on and shaped by the principles of the Feldenkrais Method®.
