nonverbal communication strategies for learning through a successful mobility
I remember that in 2005, when I attended the first international course in Palm Springs Pilates the first workshop that I signed was one of spine rotation. I was a little paralyzed when we had to do practices in couples: for me that back was something sacred, such as sculptures or paintings from a museum and one is very circumspect with his hands behind. Later the plasticity of my life has been leading me to join backs, shoulders, pelvis ... people. A catapult for this integration was to begin the formation of the Feldenkrais method.
With a cardinal clarity, I know my place maximum attention, is that from where I can help the person I have in front: help, do not treat.
Help that person is helping me too, that the end may have a therapeutic result, it is true and not deny it, but it's a completely different starting place. This isn’t where there is a therapist and someone who will be treated. There is a violinist, violin and the public:

- From there I can invite that person to discover alternatives, not to be treated. I feel in my innermost being that this exchange can offer them easier ways to deal with the everyday problems.
- Everything starts with Respect. It's the same feeling I felt in Palm Springs when I was sitting on the floor behind that back.
- In a Feldenkrais method segment made with Anat Krivine as a trainer I agree with the sentiment that she described that unique place where the practitioner’s dream and the person receiving the FI (his own dream) meet.
- I keep like unfathomable memories, not as trophies, some moments like those described Anat, the most recent was when Judith felt pleasure a leg that has had to work hard over the years and when Victor did not leave disoriented after the IF, as usually happens when testing any non-daily movement on your system (either pilates, massage, gym, whatever).
