Eilat Almagor The Feldenkrais® Method Learning Through Movement

Eilat Almagor

Eilat Almagor is a senior Trainer in the Feldenkrais Method. She graduated from Moshe Feldenkrais’ training in Amherst in 1983.

Eilat has a Ph.D in neurobiology, an M.Sc in environmental science, and a B.Sc in Mathematics and Physics, from the Hebrew University.

Beginning in 1984, Eilat has taught “Awareness through movement” classes in the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance, under the Dance faculty.

Since 1990, Eilat directs professional Feldenkrais trainings in Israel, Italy, and Japan.

Eilat works with babies and children with special needs, as well as adults who use the method to relieve pain, or to improve abilities.

In recent years, Eilat leads a project to incorporate Feldenkrais lessons in schools, and collaborates with neuroscientists in Israel and Germany in a scientific researched aimed at studying the effects of the Feldenkrais method on brain activity.

For the past two years, Eilat teaches with Prof. Dorit Aharonov an experimental course in the school of Computer Science in the Hebrew University. The course combines classes in theoretical computer-science with movement lessons in the Feldenkrais method. This learning method is unconventional in the university, and the course contains exercises that allow introspection into the learning process itself.
