Systemic and Integrative Bodywork (Individual Sessions)
Systemic and Integrative Bodywork is a body and perception training, which combines knowledge and practice from Feldenkrais‘ functional integration with solution-oriented and systemic-therapeutic methods. The fundament was created by Alon Talmi in close connection with Moshe Feldenkrais and developed further by Nurit Somer and Gudrun Schreiner (SIB – Systemische und Integrative Bewegungslehre®).
With the help of specific touches and movements, muscular postures and tensions are guided into the anatomical connection between the skeleton and the nervous system and thus brought into a releasing motion. Thereby we also pay attention to the interplay of physical and mental processes. One treatment generally lasts 90 min. We work dressed in lying, sitting or standing in comfortable clothes. By means of SIB, the solution of a concrete request can be worked in a closly composed sequence, or be used as a continuous support of resource-oriented well-being and centering.
SIB is based on scientific findings in neurobiology, neurophysiology and systems theory and promotes body and self-perception.
So far, SIB has been particularly effective in:
— releasing muscle tension, especially neck and shoulder tension
— releasing lower back problems
— improvement of flexibility in the hip
— migraines and headaches
— rehabilitation after injuries or neurological diseases
— help and prevention in burn-out syndrome
In 2016 I finshed the 3 years training to become a certified practicitioner for SIB® – systemic and integrative bodywork. This body-practice is a big support for my mentoring and teaching as it works with the interrelation of body and mind, as well as the personal condition and the social field of involvement.
What people said after a session: „For the first time, I have the feeling that my hump can dissolve. I feel very upright and easy and my ribcage in a wide beautiful.“
„I feel very good. This is more than holidays. Completely different standing and connection to the earth through my body. Whouh!“
„I feel like everything is working together in my body now. The little toe helps the tooth gap. Compact and lightweighted. Much better pad, lower body feels so much clearer.
„I feel like a human again. Connected. The neck is so much more free and so do head and shoulders“
„Everything can drop into the ground as it should to make it easier.“
I give individual sessions to support repattering and self-healing processes feedbacking through the body, sensations, thoughts, memories and imaginations.
It is a deep pleasure for me to assist people engaging in their capacities, trust and joy for their development.

I studied dance at the University of Amsterdam / School for New Dance Development,
focusing on performance and somatic practices such as: Hands-on work,
Body-Mind Centering®, Alexander Technique® and Feldenkrais®. Through my artistic work I have been dealing with these movement techniques for my performance work and my teaching since 1988. I am especially interested in the stories the body tells and dreams.
Above all dance is for me a form of communication that goes beyond the verbal.
In various artistic and socio-political projects (mixed abilities, intercultural collaboration,
basic income dance, dementia) I explore dance in relation to the poetic potentials of
everyday conditions and behaviour. Capoeira, Feldenkrais and Yoga are practices which
keep inspiring me the most. Since 2012 I have an intensive Core-Strength Vinyasa Yoga
practice and invenstigation. I teach in various institutes and projects: Tanzquartier Wien;
KinderuniKunst; Vienna Conservatory;University of Dance and Music, Israel; Studio Machfeld; SEAD; Condance / Vienna; Impulstanz; a.o.
