Lisbon, Europe’s sunniest capital with 239 sunny days annually, boasts a Mediterranean climate, unique light, white cobblestones, and iconic yellow trams. This cosmopolitan city, steeped in history and traditions, offers Fado music, UNESCO sites like Sintra and Cascais within 30 minutes, and a vibrant cultural scene with concerts and festivals. Located on the Tagus river and the sea, Lisbon provides opportunities for water sports and year-round outdoor activities like jogging, hiking, and golf. The rugged Atlantic coast is a 35-minute drive for those seeking peaceful or adventurous escapes.

Lisbon is the perfect option for combining Feldenkrais with culture, nature and sports activities, experiencing a degree of freedom that is difficult to match elsewhere.

Paul is globally recognized for his accessible teaching style, characterized by clarity and openness, offering unwavering support to all learners.

The first training year consists of four segments, while the following three years comprise three segments each. Conveniently, the first segment of the program and the February segments will be held online via Zoom.
