The Solutions Programs offer a range of inventive movement processes designed to address common neuro-muscular issues. The course takes place over six days with participants working mainly sitting in chairs, but also sometimes walking or working against the wall. Ruthy Alon artfully guides and empowers participants to access their own, self-correcting intelligence, so that they are able to discover better options for comfortable, coordinated movement. The movement processes are accessible to all ages and abilities and can be done at home.
Ruthy Alon (1930—2020) was among the 13 fortunate students who sat on straw stools around the low treatment table at Moshe Feldenkrais's first training program. From those early days in Israel, the Feldenkrais Method became the central axis of Ruthy’s development and professional contributions. She was the first practitioner to follow Moshe to the U.S., in 1972, coming to the Esalen Institute in California, and then teaching his new approach to the improvement of human functioning in centers around the world.
She always taught with loving kindness and generosity. She continued to learn and to bring the Method to the public, making it easily accessible for everyone.
At the 2018 Feldenkrais® Guild conference, in Washington D.C., Ruthy was honored with a Lifetime Achievement award for her contributions to the Method and our community. Her brilliant thinking and innovation has helped thousands of people over many decades. Her students, both of the Feldenkrais Method® of somatic education and Movement Intelligence will continue on her name teaching her beautiful body of work.
