Who: Carla Oswald Reed

Carla will share her unique perspective and experience from her 50 year professional history as a pediatric Physical Therapist which has been transformed and enriched by her training with

  • Moshe Feldenkrais (1980-83, Lifetime certified Feldenkrais® Practitioner)
  • Anat Baniel (Certified Anat Baniel Method of NeuroMovement® Practitioner since 2004, Trainer 2011-2016)

Here is a link to a video interview with Carla at the Scandinavian Center for Neurodevelopmental Movement in which she discusses differences between conventional Physical Therapy and her work: https://movementtowholeness.com/353/carlas-on-camera-interview/

This is a one day public workshop for parents, other family members and/or caregivers; Feldenkrais® and/or Anat Baniel Method of NeuroMovement® Practitioners; and other professionals involved with children who have special needs that have interfered with their developmental learning. The workshop will include movement experiences, presentation of background material, and live and/or video demonstration of my work with children, and Q & A for participants to be introduced to learn how:

  • Your child learns from feeling the weight of his/her body parts in space
  • Your child of any age can reenter the learning process and improve
  • To observe your child with wonder and curiosity rather than focus on what's wrong and "fixing"
  • To understand the enormous potential of neuroplasticity which is the brain's capacity to change
  • To use qualities of touch, pacing, and language in the interactions with your child that get the brain's attention
  • To use gravity to tailor learning experiences for your child that your child does not generate for him/herself
  • To awaken your child’s learning potential when other professionals have said the child “plateaued”
  • To employ this dynamic systems approach to learning in everyday activities with your child in ways that your child experiences him/her-self as:

-a responsible and respected participant in every aspect of his/her life;

-a capable person who can learn;

-communicating more effectively with others;

-discovering more effective functional relationships of his/her body parts; and

-problem solving how his/her body moves in gravity
