Thank you, Alan. Learning from you marked a profound and positive turning point for me in the FELDENKRAIS METHOD®.” Lindagail Campbell, NLP Trainer and FELDENKRAIS® Trainee.
“I always participate in advanced trainings, supervisions or public workshops with Alan Questel and I am very happy that he is starting a new training here in Sweden in 2008. Hopefully there will be more opportunities to meet with him. With a warm, kind and openhearted attitude, he creates an atmosphere where its easy to be yourself, learn and actually grow as a human being. He has a special sense of humor which shouldn’t be underestimated in a learning process. Every question seems important to Alan and as a good teacher, he answers in many different ways and always with respect. So its easy, with Alan to ask ‘stupid’ questions. He is a great representative of the FELDENKRAIS METHOD®, as he never stops being curious and inventive. The things I have learned from Alan are practical and I use them all a lot. His thinking and how he utilizes the FELDENKRAIS METHOD® really works in an outstanding way!” Harriet Persson, Physical Therapist and FELDENKRAIS® Practitioner.
"Alan Questel is an inspiring and engaging teacher. His approach is systematic and creative, his persona warm and caring and his humor makes the whole thing even more fun!" Yvan Joly, FELDENKRAIS® Trainer.
"Alan's passion for learning and his profound grasp of FELDENKRAIS® principles have inspired me for the last 15 years. He is patient and supportive, with a famous sense of humor and a fresh approach to the training process that remains faithful to Moshe's original intention - to fulfill our avowed and unavowed dreams. If you haven't had a chance to study with him - what are you waiting for?" Lavinia Plonka, GCFP, Author of What Are You Afraid Of? and Walking Your Talk.
"The nature of the FELDENKRAIS METHOD® can be elusive and the benefits similarly complex to articulate. Alan Questel has the facility to convey the intricacies of the Method to people in a way that is eminently "get-able". It is a rare gift to make the complex simple without diminishing it in any way. Alan performs this role with and for his audience - no matter what their background - so that people experience the nature and benefits in a way that feels individually tailored for them. the fact that he does this with great fun is the added bonus!"
