For Practitioners

Mentoring for practitioners working with children in the lineage of Dr Moshe Feldenkrais

Hi, I’m Sophie Dingemans. Welcome to my site, and thanks for visiting!

I am a Vienna-based Feldenkrais® Method practitioner working throughout Europe. I work with people with a wide-range of needs and specialise in working with children, especially those with special needs.

Working with children

For my work with children, in addition to my Feldenkrais certification, I have additional post-graduate qualifications as a Working with Children practitionerAdvanced Training for Feldenkrais practitioners with theory and technique from Anat Baniel Method for Children (ABM), taught by Nancy Aberle (sm), and a Jeremy Krauss Approach (JKA) for Child Development practitioner. Both are founded on the transformative work of Dr Moshe Feldenkrais.

For the last three years I have also been mentoring practitioners who work with children in the Feldenkrais lineage and am currently the assistant teacher for the 2019-2020 Working with Children practitioner training where my responsibilities include supervising practitioners as they work with children.

Working with adults

In my work with adults, besides working with recovery and rehabilitation from pain and injury as many Feldenkrais practitioners do, I also specialise in the application of the method for creative thinking and performance enhancement for professionals, recovery from anxiety and trauma, and in working with issues to do with the pelvic floor.

My practice

In Vienna, individual sessions take place at Elixier, a warm and welcoming multidisciplinary medical and health centre in the beautiful historic centre of the city. Workshops and classes take place in a range of venues throughout the city.

Around Europe, I work in a range of settings giving intensive series of individual sessions for children and adults, teaching workshops, and mentoring practitioners working with children. You can find my schedule here.

On this site you can read in more detail about The Feldenkrais Methodhow it workshow it is taught and where it comes from. I explain how the method can help everybody as well as my specialist work with children and their families.
