Celebrate International Feldenkrais Week, May 4-9
Donna Bervinchak—a Feldenkrais and Child’Space practitioner and Pregnant Pauses teacher—will offer her Awareness Through Movement class, 11 a.m. on May 5, and 5:45 p.m. on May 7, at a reduced cost for new students. The events are held in memory of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais' work, and what would have been his 111th birthday.
Feldenkrais—with degrees in mechanical and electrical engineering, as well as a Doctorate of Science in Physics—developed the Feldenkrais methodology when faced with a knee injury that threatened his ability to function. By applying his extensive scientific knowledge and martial arts expertise, he taught himself how to walk and function pain-free, without causing further damage or requiring surgery.
Bervinchak holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Cardiovascular Health and Exercise. Specializing in teaching developmental movement sequences that help improve human functions such as sitting, standing and walking, she holds individual sessions and group classes for babies, children and adults, regardless of limitations.
Cost: $5. Class location: Susquehanna Dance Center, 120 College Ave., Ste. 120, Mountville. Private session location: Improving Through Movement, 3543 Marietta Ave. H1, Lancaster. For more information, call 717-285-0399 or visit FeldenkraisBlog.com.
