Bringing an MBS Perspective to Pilates: An Interview with MBS Practitioner Jane Meek

Posted by on

by Danielle Hill

Pilates is an application of the body, whereas MBS to me is how to be as a body in the broadest sense, in the way that we come into the world with all these capabilities.

Jane Meek is a graduate of the MBS Foundation training (2011) and a Body Control Pilates Instructor and Remedial Massage and Advanced Myofascial Therapist based in Glasgow, Scotland. In her work with clients and students in these two distinct contexts, Jane has described MBS as “running through everything and underpinning everything rather than the other way around.”

Prior to her entrance into the world of bodywork and movement education, Jane worked in translation and in the wine industry.

Hidden Simplicity; the Elegance of Mind Body Studies

Posted by on

New Ways of Teaching Mind Body Studies; the work of Dr. Feldenkrais.

written by Mary Morrison, MBS Advanced Practitioner in 2011 

b2ap3_thumbnail_MaryPic2.jpgMary Morrison is an MBS Advanced Practitioner, Assistant and an imperative role in MBS Academy's Administration.  If you have ever been to an MBS workshop, you most likely had the opportunity to experience her enthusiasm and passion for this work.  Mary wrote the following blog in 2011, highlighting the beginning of her journey with MBS.  "I took a big first step after hearing that Mia Segal was going to be giving a two day workshop as part of the 2009 Feldenkrais Method Annual Conference. I knew very little about her, only that she had worked with Moshe for many years. That was enough to peak my curiosity. I was inspired to find out who she was and how she taught. I signed up.

On the first day, during the first few minutes of the first ATM, a gem, of what was to be a long string of gems, shined out for me:"

The sensation of being aware; A testimonial by Ana Bergamaschi

Posted by on

I feel we are learning what is most essential in life: to listen. To be aware. To maintain our availability, humility and curiosity when facing the world. It brings such freshness to life – I mean, it brings life itself.

     When I first started practicing the Feldenkrais Method six years ago, I had no idea how much this practice would completely change my life. Until then, I thought I was sensitive and functional and that it was okay and enough as it was.

      With the practice of Feldenkrais and eventually Mind Body Studies, I quickly started discovering a whole new range of capacities. In the beginning, I sensed more possibilities of movements, such as new ways of walking, sitting, crawling and looking. Then I sensed all the different sensations that came together with those new ways of being in life: groundedness, stability, smoothness, fluidity, curiosity, playfulness, sensitivity and infinite new sensations!

Testimonial from Grace

Posted by on

"My sister (Sungeun Hong) got a lesson(FI) from Leora last October in a little town called Bad Tolz in Germany, during the MBS Professional Foundation training. My sister said that the way she uses her bow changed completely after the lesson. She felt so stable and balanced while playing that the use of the bow became surprisingly effortless. When you think of it, it’s not just the use of the bow while playing cello. It is a change in the use of her whole self in everything she does, which means change in the quality of her life! Her performance in a concert held in November subsequent to this experience was profound! The picture below is after the concert with some of the fellow MBS students in Korea."

Pam's Aha! Moment

Posted by on

"I had an Aha! moment yesterday. I was cleaning stalls and my left arm was getting tired from lifting fork after fork of frozen horse poop. Suddenly this little voice in my head said, "What can you do to make this easier?" Well, a muck fork is just a lever, so I knew right away that rather than lifting only with my left arm, I could press down with my right arm to make lifting easier. It's not rocket science, but before starting this journey, I probably would have just kept doing what I was doing and ended up with a sore arm and probably a sore back and neck too!"
