Training Course — September 2016 to June 2022

San Sebastian - Donostia 2

The longer segments of this training program make it easy for people from all over the world to come and study with us and dive deep into the Feldenkrais Method. Our students especially appreciate this location for the possibility to combine professional learning with vacation, nature and personal development.

We started offering Feldenkrais Training programs in San Sebastian in 2013 and as of today the Basque Region is developing to be one of the most active areas for Feldenkrais in Spain.

The training location for the San Sebastian- Donostia 2 program is located 10 minutes walking distance from San Sebastian’s beautiful Zurriola Bay and about 15 minutes away from the old part of town (the Casco Viejo) and the La Concha bay.

San Sebastian (called “Donostia” in the Basque language) is only 15km away from the French border, located between Biarritz in France and Bilbao in Spain, right on the Atlantic Ocean.

The Basque country and especially San Sebastian are known as the culinary center of Spain and in terms of outdoor activities there could hardly be a more attractive spot in Europe. One can hike in the mountains, walk on the beach, swim in the calm circular shaped bay of Donostia, surf the rougher waters of the second round bay, or just enjoy the remarkable panoramic view the two moon shaped bays lend to San Sebastian.

Segment Structure

The first training year is divided into 3 segments. Years 2, 3 and 4 of the program have 2 segments per year. One segment in the spring and the other segment in the summer.
