„Life is movement – without movement no life is possible!“

Dr. Moshé Feldenkrais

Ursula Brog

The joy of movement is my strongest motivation

I simply wanted and want to be able to move in a variety of ways, but without having to achieve anything. Competitions have never interested me, but playfulness and curiosity move me in the truest sense of the word.
I feel lucky to have encountered the Feldenkrais Method® and it has accompanied me in my life ever since.

But is that really so amazing? Not for me, because movement is a natural part of our lives.

And that is exactly why I would like to introduce this method to all interested people.

Feldenkrais

  • I am a certified member of the Swiss Feldenkrais Association and a certified Feldenkrais teacher since August 2021
  • 2017 – 2021 Training Zurich City under the direction of Angelica Feldmann (feldmannmoves.com)
  • 2019 – 2021 Medicine course Heilpraktikerschule Lindau, Germany.
  • Since 2016 regular participation in intensive seminars and group lessons in Awareness through Movement.

I first came across the Feldenkrais Method® rather by chance in 2010. I was desperately looking for relief for my ongoing tension and associated pain. I had been doing disciplined strength training for a long time and also yoga regularly, but these disciplines did not get to the root of the problem.

I will never forget the wow effect after the first lesson of Functional Integration. I had never felt so serene, relaxed and at the same time “centred”. And this sensation laid the foundation for my intimate relationship with this method and bodywork itself.

Bodywork & Passion

I remembered that when I was 20 years old I had enthusiastically taken lessons in pantomime. In search of this, I “stumbled” across the Yve Stöcklin Clown School in Basel (www.clownschule.ch) and began enthusiastically attending all the appropriate courses and workshops there in 2013.

From 2013 to 2015, I also completed the basic training as a clown. After that, I kept bringing out my clown nose and also attended workshops with international clowns at the Tamala Clown School in Konstanz in Germany.

Then, from 2015 to 2018, I pursued my passion for pantomime and physical theatre again in the form of private lessons with Céline Oehen, movement actress and speech therapist. (www.theatervordemmond.ch).

For me, one thing is certain: the clown pushed me forward to pursue Feldenkrais intensively. And Feldenkrais brought me to the clown so that I could find pantomime again.
