Hi! I am claudie Pfeifer, somatic educator, and coach. Founder of the on line studio "vieillirsansretrecir.com" (Aging without shrinking). I published my book ( in french only) : "in shape without violence, micro movements for our daily life".
Since 1972, my passion is about guiding women and men to deepen their awareness, move better, feel better, strengthen their self-esteem and continue to shine in the world through old age.
Functional dance teacher (graduate of the Rosalia Chladek International Association), I became a physical educator in a sports federation in France. It was at 40 that I went back to university to obtain a master's degree in education. While teaching, until today, I still continue to evolve and learn in various somatic approaches (Feldenkrais, Aïkido, Kinomichi, Yvonne Berge, Neuro-linguistic programming, Diamond Approach…). I developed the Emballons-nous method, a somatic approach with balls and creative expression I had the privilege to accompany hundreds of people in France and Quebec to move with awareness, freedom and authenticity.
Following my immigration to Montreal in 1997, I became a massage therapist, then a certified teacher in the « Bones for life ® and Movement intelligence ®(Ruthy Alon) » program. In order to deepen my understanding and experience about the relation of movement and the brain, I got certified in the Feldenkrais ® Method in the New England Training (FGNA), for the Awareness through Movement Group Classes (ATM®)
I am very proud of my last realization which gave me the opportunity to step out of my comfort zone: The creation of the online studio, "vieillirsansretrecir.com" (aging without shrinking.com)
Whatever the shape of our body, our age, our life experiences, our limitations, it is possible to continue to develop and grow until the end of our life in a perspective of autonomy and freedom.
I am a woman committed to contribute to the collective well-being. To promote somatic education in our society, I am on the board of the Professional association of somatic education of Quebec (RES) and a member of the foundation of Movement intelligence (FMI).
My book ( in french)
Vivre en forme sans violence (Living in shape without violence) is about becoming aware of our moving self with simple tools to find an authentic way of moving, with authenticity , Our daily life becomes an opportunity to learn to move better, to flourish and to have fun.
