Anne Andrews, Alachua, Florida

Cate Thomas, Santa Rosa, California

Elizabeth Keith,Scottsdale, Arizona

Katarina Halm, Vancouver, BC, Canada

Viana Daven, Seattle, Washington


Who can attend the Trainer Training (TT)?

A certified Teacher in any of the Movement Intelligence programs, Bones for Life®, Walk for Life, and/or Chairs, who has been teaching for at least 2 years with 200 hours of experience.

You only need to take the TT one time for all MI programs.

What is the format?

We will meet as a whole group for 10 sessions of 3 hours each. The schedule will be decided amongst the group. The sessions will be spread out over a period of time to give you lots of time for your assignments.

We use Zoom video conferencing system.

You will also meet in pairs and / or small groups outside of the whole group sessions, to work on your assignments; via Skype, Zoom, email, phone or any other way.

The Trainer Training is 30 hours, plus homework assignments. You also need to write a 10-30 page essay, report or presentation.

There are 2 main parts:

  1. The Learning Material: Polishing the basic learning material of the program(s) that you have graduated as a Teacher and learning how to lead the Didactic Teacher Training on your own.
  2. Administration: The administration relating to the general Movement Intelligence professional community, including contact with your Country Director. In North America this is the Foundation for Movement Intelligence (FMI).

The Trainer Training is an interaction between the participants of the training, enriching each other and receiving confirmation about how much they know with the confidence attached to it, maintaining the spirit of Ruthy Alon’s life work, Movement Intelligence.

Dates for the next Trainer Training TBA.

Please contact Anna if you are ready to take the Trainer Training.
