Catching up with Movement Science

What can movement science offer to Feldenkrais researchers?

Beatrix Vereijken, Ph.D.

with Roger Russell, MA, PT and Diane Hannemann, Ph.D.

Movement science is one of the many perspectives for researching the Feldenkrais Method. Since its rise in the 1980’s, the field has grown rapidly in the sophistication of research methods, its theoretical depth and innovative applications.

Beatrix Vereijken will: 

  1. Give a short introduction to movement science.
  2. Review her professional path and what interests her about the Feldenkrais Method.
  3. Discuss theoretical relationships to the Feldenkrais Method.
  4. Converse with us about research resources available for Feldenkrais researchers.
  5. Speak about her current research with large patient cohorts (2400 people) utilizing wearable movement sensors that can detect each individual’s way of moving.
  6. Why these technical wonders need to be matched with individual reports and interviews to understand what matters most to people. 

This online event will include a lecture, a discussion with Roger Russell and Diane Hannemann and time for questions and answers.

        Dear Christine,
        yes, all the online events are recorded. We will inform via newsletter once they are made available. We are still working on the technicalities. Thank you for your patience!
