Dr. Wildman is perhaps one of the most prolific Feldenkrais Trainers having taught dozens of Feldenkrais Trainings in areas as such as the U.S., Japan, Australia and many countries in Europe. In this aproximately 35 minute conversation I talk with Frank about whether the Feldenkrais Method is more accepted in certain parts of the world and what might account for that.
We have a wide and varied conversation, discussing the marketing and the “perceived value”of the method, mentioning some recently succesfull examples of marketing acumen as found in Pilates and Yoga. Frank mentions the need for effective business models and business skills, to help spread the Feldenkrais Method.
I ask Frank about some of the historical details about the early Feldenkrais trainings and to speak to some of Moshe’s early thoughts about the Feldenkrias Method as a profession.
We end with a brief conversation about Dr. Wildman’s workshop, “Your Brain as the Core of Strength and Stability.” Short video’s of which you can see elsewhere on this blog.
