The Feldenkrais Method deals with the question of how we can learn to organise ourselves in such way that we act in accordance with our own needs, desires, plans and responsibilities. How can we learn to find the best way of coping with the challenges that constantly present themselves? How can we incorporate the ability to keep functioning, even when we encounter difficulties such as invalidity, illness or chronic pain?

Nicoline van der Pas

Enterprising and inquiring, with a particular focus on optimum physical functioning and your well-being. I have had a physiotherapy practice in Amsterdam for 30 years. In my manual therapeutic work I gained considerable experience with the locomotor apparatus and with the anatomy and physiology of the skeleton.
My greatest desire is for everyone to discover and draw on his or her maximum potential. The Feldenkrais method provides me with the right tools to make this possible. Visit to find out more information about lessons in Amsterdam or at your business premises.


Barbara Roodnat

We are continuously striving for balance in order to function optimally. That can sometimes be a challenge, but it can also be an amazingly simple process.

My name is Barbara Roodnat and I’m a general physiotherapist and Feldenkrais practitioner. I have many years of experience in both fields. My background enables me to draw from various treatment methods and techniques. The fact is that everyone needs a different treatment specifically geared to his or her own needs. We move from morning to night. In doing our work and practising our hobbies, we try to bring structure to our daily lives. Injuries, afflictions, tension problems or periods of convalescence after operations can get in the way of this. I provide expert guidance in order to influence and speed up the recovery process. One particular aim of the treatment I provide might also be dealing with particular impediments which in some cases are recurring.
If you are suffering from complaints as a result of stress, overwork or for reasons you are not yet sure of, remember that mind and body are an integral, inseparable whole. A disturbance in one area will affect the others. My aim is to illuminate the factors involved and to restore your resilience. Coaching, relaxation and breathing exercises are effective treatment methods. Together we will look for the right solution for you.

Frances Schorer

After completing my physiotherapy training (1970-1974), I gained a wide range of experience with MS and CVA patients and child rehabilitation. I subsequently qualified as a haptonomist and Feldenkrais practitioner. My approach and my dealings with both adults and children are influenced by the work of the Hungarian paediatrician Emmi Pikler.

Child Space training (Feldenkrais for babies) taught me how motoric movements develop in babies and how to support parents in gaining an understanding of the importance of unobstructed development. My work includes providing Feldenkrais therapy to groups. I also work individually with adults, children and babies. For me the Lijnbaansgracht Practice is a place to meet colleagues and exchange experiences.

Anna Verberne

Anna Verberne is a Feldenkrais teacher, Child’Space practitioner and Iokai Shiatsu therapist. She works with children (including small children) and adults, both individually and in groups. She also teaches within the continuing training programmes provided by Stichting Beweging and Dans en Spel in Amsterdam. In addition, she gives annual workshops and refresher courses in which the Feldenkrais method is combined with other disciplines (e.g. song, dance improvisation, Alexander technique): unusual and inspiring combinations. She studied Feldenkrais with Mia Segal, assistant to Moshe Feldenkrais, and pursued her Iokai Shiatsu study with Kazunori Sasaki at the Iokai Shiatsu Academie d’Europe. In 2010 she completed the Child’Space-Chava Shelhay method. Based on Feldenkrais, it is a method that supports babies in the first two years of their development. It is geared towards both parent(s) and the baby. Her background in modern dance, acrobatics, and her training in the Japanese voice and movement arts Shinto, Ki-training and Ki-Aikido, are major sources of inspiration for Anna, which she draws upon abundantly in her lessons and treatments. Anna is a member of the Dutch Feldenkrais Association (Nederlandse Feldenkrais Vereniging) and the Association of Iokai-Shiatsu Therapists (Vereniging voor Iokai-Shiatsu Therapeuten). She is also registered with RBCZ (the Register of Professional Practitioners in Complementary Care) (Register Beroepsbeoefenaren Complementaire Zorg) and SRBAG (the Register of Professional Supplementary Healthcare Practitioners) (Stichting Registratie Beroepsbeoefenaren Aanvullende Gezondheidszorg). Her Iokai Shiatsu treatments are partially refunded on the basis of supplementary insurance. Website: , e.mail:
