Monja Boonzaier


 

I am a certified Feldenkrais® Practitioner accredited by the European Training Accreditation Board and a certified Child’Space Practitioner accredited by Dr Chava Shelhav. I work with adults and children and I place emphasis on working with the nervous system. I help adults and children reduce stress and ease chronic pain through repatterning the brain using Somatic movement.

My initial Dance and Pilates training and my continuous journey of personal development (Psychotherapy, Postural Integration, NLP/Neurolinguistic programming, Acupuncture, Cranio Sacral Therapy, Body Sensing) has helped me become a Feldenkrais/Somatic Movement practitioner. My teaching practice has transformed from teaching exercise to a more Somatic (Body and Mind) based movement practice.

My qualifications include; Comprehensive mat and equipment Pilates accreditation through the Pilates Foundation UK. Bachelor of Arts with Honors in Contemporary Dance, London Contemporary Dance School. The latter is Validated by the University of Kent, Canterbury. Sports Massage qualification through Healing Hands International, Johannesburg and have received additional training with Mel Cash from London School of Sports Massage.

Due to my international training and my skills I am not limited to one discipline. I am able to cover a large variety of my clients movement based requirements. My creativity, passion for movement and working with people reflect in my teaching.
