Training Course — December 2020 to September 2024

Madrid 5


“From Madrid to Heaven!” This iconic phrase encapsulates the essence of the city. Madrid’s sky boasts a vibrant, unmistakable shade of blue, rendering it truly distinctive.

The Spanish capital seamlessly melds historical grandeur with contemporary vitality. Its tapestry includes historic landmarks, renowned museums, theaters, and an array of dining establishments, ranging from traditional taverns to cutting-edge Michelin-starred restaurants. Madrid further offers respite in its beautiful parks and gardens.

What truly sets Madrid apart is the warm and welcoming nature of its inhabitants, the Madrilenians, whose infectious cheerfulness will swiftly make you feel right at home.

The location of our Feldenkrais training programs in Madrid is in the beautiful neighborhood of La Guindalera, part of the Salamanca district, with fantastic metro, bus, or car connections. There are shops, restaurants, and a beautiful park within a short distance.

The training program

Our training program draws participants from diverse countries, with instruction conducted in English with Spanish translation by the renowned educational director, Paul Newton and his team. Paul is globally recognized for his accessible teaching style, characterized by clarity and openness, offering unwavering support to all learners.

Each of the four training years is divided into four segments of 10 days each. Conveniently, the first segment of the program and the February segments will be held online via Zoom. We also provide study groups and online meetings between main training segments and missed training segments or days can easily be made up for in one of our other training programs.
