Reclaiming Rollers

Advanced Workshop with Larry Goldfarb, Ph.D. in Hamburg

Keeping Moshe Feldenkrais’ innovative use of rollers as tools for learning alive, RECLAIMING ROLLERS is devoted entirely to using rollers in Functional Integration. To complement the hands-on material, all the ATMs also incorporate rollers. Each participant will need a set of three rollers with the (approximate) diameters 7, 10 und 15cm.

Rollers offer a dynamic base of support, amplifying the effect of even small movements and clarifying how weight shifts. Engaging and challenging your student’s ability to find and maintain equilibrium requires them to stay alert and make small adjustments to stay on the roller. Clarifing the transmission of force, relieving habitual patterns of contraction and uncovering new ways of moving and breathing leaves the student with a profound sense of skeletal support.

RECLAIM YOUR ROLLERS from their supporting function to give them a starring role in your lessons!

Mastering the Method

RECLAIMING ROLLERS is part of Larry's advanced workshop series MASTERING THE METHOD. His time-honored pièce de résistance is divided into individual segments of 5 days each. In each installment Larry offers a multi-dimensional map of an archetypal lesson in a careful and complete manner. Examining essential lessons from an advanced perspective offers you the means to discover – and come to embody – the methodology that guided Moshe Feldenkrais in developing our work.

Larry has been teaching this continuous master class all over the world for countless years and taught modules 1 through 9 in Hamburg from 2008 until 2018. Now, at last, he will return... with RECLAIMING ROLLERS, the Missing Link.

I have known Larry since 2009 and worked extensively with him. I owe a huge amout of my understanding and clarity to MASTERING THE METHOD. Understanding the how & the why of a lesson... and learning how to create context for my students, enabling them to transfer their experience into daily life, was a game-changer... and allowed me to become the practitioner I am today.

If you would like to bring the seeds of your professional Training to bloom I recommend working with Larry from the bottom of my heart!

I am totally thrilled to be translating this workshop for him, as I believe I understand his principles and ideas deeply.
