Thomas came to the Feldenkrais Method of movement from different disciplines: martial arts, dance, massage and physiotherapy. The birth of his children led him to intense studies about developmental aspects.
He completed his training in 1995 in Vienna. For many years he was dedicated exclusively to his work as a professional and assistant trainer under the supervision of Jeremy Krauss and Paul Newton in Austria, Germany and Spain. In 2016 he was accredited as a Feldenkrais trainer. He is one of the first graduates of the JKA training program for working with special needs children. The Jeremy Krauss Approach (JKA) is a unique way of helping children with special needs to learn, grow and develop, based on the work of Dr. Feldenkrais.
Thomas has a unique ability to relate his knowledge and experience in martial arts with the Feldenkrais Method. He speaks German, English and Portuguese and lives in Chiemsee / Germany.
