Some of you may already know Charlotte as she has been subbing for Emma Doukas but later this Spring we say good bye to Emma (we will miss her!) and officially welcome Charlotte as our Wednesday lunchtime Feldenkrais teacher.
More about Charlotte Seirberg
Growing up in Denmark and of Danish-Mauritian origin, Charlotte’s fascination with other cultures and learning new languages eventually brought her to London in the 1990’s to study an honours degree in Social Anthropology and Economics at SOAS.
Her interest in physical health and wellbeing started with a Pilates class in 2004, inspiring her to sign up for a Pilates teacher training course at City Lit in 2007. She then furthered her training with the Pilates Foundation in London.
Charlotte was introduced to the Feldenkrais Method® by a friend a decade ago and has never looked back. She is now a qualified Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® teacher and her vocation is to share the method’s educational system with others. She is also a current student of the hands on aspect of the Feldenkrais training.
She has also taken a number of additional courses that complement her Pilates and Feldenkrais Method® training, including: the Fascial Fitness Training with Fascial Fitness, the Anatomy and Myofascial Movement Course for Pilates Teachers with Natural Bodies, Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector with City & Guilds, and Mindfulness for Health with Breathworks. This month (May 2018) she will become a certified Mindfulness for Stress and Mindfulness-based Pain Management teacher with Breathworks.
Additionally, Charlotte has an interest in healthy and mindful ageing. A qualified Postural Stability Instructor since 2010, she works with older people to reduce their risk of falling and helps them stay independent and mobile through “strength and balance” classes, as well as one-to-one home visits in the local community. She also runs specialised “strength and balance” classes for those affected by stroke or osteoporosis.
Charlotte says: “I work with diverse groups of people and individuals, which I find very enriching and rewarding.”
What is the Feldenkrais Method®?
Based on principles of physics, biomechanics, and an empirical understanding of learning and human development, the Feldenkrais Method® is an educational method focussed on learning and movement.
By heightening awareness of our movement, breathing and posture, we learn to move more freely, with greater ease, flexibility and grace. This helps to enhance functioning and as how we move is how we move through life, these improvements can often enhance thinking, emotional regulation, and problem solving capabilities – bringing us closer to realising our full human potential.
Benefits of the Feldenkrais Method® include:
• Relief from tension and muscular pain
• Easier and fuller breathing
• Greater relaxation and wellbeing
• Improved performance in sport, dance, music and drama • Greater ease in everyday activities
• Increased vitality.
