DellaGrotte Core Movement Integration

Moving Well & Fit for the Rest of Your Life

Upcoming Courses

“I am a physical therapist practicing for 25 years, studied and now certified in Core Movement Integration using Feldenkrais principles with Josef DellaGrotte. I began this process as a client not recovering well from herniated discs and sciatica with traditional therapies. As a competitive runner I could not accept being unable to run without pain. Now I have learned how to move more organized, pain-free, medication-free. I use what I have learned (and continue to learn) to assist my own clients in reducing pain and regaining functional movements” Jean Sarno, PT


Core Movement Integration: Dynamic Core Stabilization

Using Functional Anatomy to Create Movement Pathways
(2nd Course of 100-hour Training Program)

9:45 AM-6:00 PM
@ GravOxy Fitness, 17 South Ave, Suite 5, Natick, MA


Take CMI Seminars individually or as part of our 100-hour Certification Program

Re-train your brain, as well as your muscles and joints, to move with ease, efficiently and safely.

In this Seminar, you will learn to:

Engage the Brain
• learn cutting edge CMI Pathway lesson-exercises
• learn enhanced CMI/Feldenkrais movement awareness
• learn hands-on CMI mapping and “pathway” tracking.

Discover & Feel the Core Connections
• use functional anatomy and myofascial touch-feel to stimulate sensory-motor connections
• connect the trochanter/hip joints through the sit bones, pelvic floor, and S-I joints, into the lumbar and thoracic spine.

Use the CMI Pathways
• to activate abdominal muscles groups in the optimal order
• to use the “girdle group,” internal obliques and transversus abdominus
• to develop CNS “wiring” for new movement patterns

CMI engages the mind and the body so movement can flow efficiently. Learn to perceive and recognize connections – the missing piece in most conventional therapies – the goal and basis of CMI functional movement integration.

For Practitioners who want to:

• Upgrade hands-on bodywork
• Improve your own body—work smarter, not harder
• Learn long-lasting skills to maintain posture, improve function, maintain fitness & wellness for life for your clients & yourself

Dynamic Core Stabilization 4/30/16


“It was a privilege to be part of [the Spine Workshop] in Castrocaro. The sessions were wonderful, instructive and helpful. I was charmed by the lovely group of people who are practitioners. And, of course, the region of Emilia Romagna was special.

Your approach makes a great deal of sense to me. I was amazed at my (relative) ease of movement, really from very early on in the course, and certainly by the close of the 3 days.”
Marilyn Yakowitz

Congratulations to Byron! 

” I just got promoted to Yondan (4th Dan) in Aikido, for the New Year!!”

From Byron Eddy (post Advanced Seminar)

“…You know I have been practicing Aikido for over thirty years and it also is one of those elusive obvious phenomena’s. And that is why I keep coming [to CMI workshops]. It gets a little clearer each time and sometimes there are great leaps forward,sometimes there are plateaus that can seem to go on forever. The point is that I have the same experience when I go to CMI seminars such as this recent one. I came away feeling new connections and new confidence.

Of course, one can stay at home and practice and make gains but it is the group experience and the skill of a master teacher that illuminate the path. That is why I keep coming. I am so grateful that you are there for us.

All the best…and can’t wait to get back up there. “- Byron
