Brent Kisilevich – Guild Certified Feldenkrais Method™ Practitioner
In his private practice he works with special needs children, seniors, high performance athletes, and active-minded people of all ages and abilities. “At the core of our learning is the human nervous system which uses the body to gather information and make sense of our world. Through skilled touch and gentle movements we can improve the quality of our lives and grow our awareness of who we are.”
Brent completed a four year program at the Feldenkrais Movement Institute in 2014. In 2018 he completed an advanced training program at the IOPS Academy for Feldenkrais Practitioners. He draws on his 18 years experience as public school teachers to engage people of all ages in changing the quality of their lives.
A former Ukrainian folk dancer, hockey player, figure skater, and Canadian ski patrol leader, Brent had always refused to let a back injury, sustained in his late teens while playing junior hockey, define his actions. Throughout his life he sought out ways to manage and improve his chronic back pain issues. In addition to being an avid weightlifter, he dabbled in Tai Chi, beginner yoga, swimming, biking, running and many team sports to manage his recurring discomforts over the last thirty years. If you ask him he will gladly tell you the story of how he was first introduced to the Feldenkrais Method™ back in 1988 while attending the University of Alberta and how that enabled him to overcome his physical challenges.
Brent opened the Okanagan Feldenkrais™ Centre in 2016. ‘I wanted to create a space where people like myself could gather with others to study the how the groundbreaking work of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais led to the development of a whole new way of understanding the role of movement in learning and creating awareness.”
