Feldenkrais® Advanced Training with François Combeau
in Zurich (CH)

January 31 to February 03, 2025

  • “A mobile Head, an alive, expressive, relaxed Face, and more functional freedom for facial and mouth organs …”
    Part 2, New Educational Program.
  • You can participate even if you did not attend Part 1.

About François' work

  • The interactive work proposed by François Combeau during these post-graduate trainings allows each participant to develop the capacities necessary for an efficient and creative practice of the Feldenkrais Method, (ATM and FI), easily adaptable to the individual needs of their students.
  • Independently of specific themes, the work is based around “how does one sense, imagine, propose, invite and accomplish” rather than “what does one do”.

About François Combeau,
Feldenkrais® Trainer

  • François Combeau has a wide range of teaching experience of ATM® lessons, including weekly classes, theme series, and numerous seminars in Paris, throughout Europe and in Detroit, Michigan, for professionals in the fields of arts, athletics and health. He also works with individuals helping them to develop a fuller quality of life, physically, mentally and emotionally.
  • As Trainer/Practitioner of the Feldenkrais Method® for more than 30 years, as an experienced Assistant Trainer and Trainer, he has been teaching in many trainings in Europe (in Paris with Myriam Pfeffer, in Liege, Belgium with Yvan Joly, in Bad Windsheim, Germany with Mark Reese), and in the U.S. with Anat Baniel. These trainers have in many ways been his mentors.
  • François Combeau has taught advanced trainings in France, Sweden, Switzerland, Germany and the U.S. He has also the desire to share the experience he developed teaching for 14 years, in small continuity educational trainings, creating a very interactive, precise and supportive way of working with students.
  • For the last 40 years, François has been teaching movement and singing. Before he took his Feldenkrais training in 1984 (M. Pfeffer, G. Yaron, Ch. Chelav, R. Alon, A. Baniel, J. Karzen…), he had training in bodywork including dance, mime and relaxation techniques and studies based on Chinese medicine, Taoist yoga, Zen meditation, and martial arts dynamics & equilibrium.
  • François has voice and speech therapy training with a specialty in neuropsychology. He has worked as a consultant and rehabilitation practitioner in one of the most well-known hospitals in Paris for brain injury. Twenty five years ago François opened a center of his own in Paris for ” Somatic Education”.

About François Combeau's Teaching

  • During this advanced training François Combeau will offer a number of structured and progressive practical situations. He will teach ATM lessons from the “Feldenkrais” repertory and also from his own repertory created along all those years of teaching experience, in direct relationship with the theme presented. He will guide practitioners in the precise and detailed discovery of these functional mobilities, differentiation’s and surprising relationships.
  • He will also guide the practitioners into FI practices with always more clarity, detail, and precision. His very interactive way of teaching will give an opportunity to each participant to develop, in a personalized and intimate environment, necessary capacities for practicing the method efficiently, creatively and adapted to the student’s needs.
  • The main purpose will be to explore and work on “how we sense, feel, imagine, propose, invite and act“ rather than on “what we do“. François is convinced that the professional training has given to practitioners a wide range of “know how” and ideas, and what everyone needs now is to develop more personal abilities and confidence in what one senses, sees and imagines.
  • Practitioners whom have already experienced François’ advanced-training in Europe and in the US, have found this style of training to be very efficient in helping them to develop their practice and move to a new level of understanding the work; underlying thinking, ways of acting and the working relationships with their students.
