Dive into FATHOM HIGH, a Feldenkrais based dance technique, learning to move like kids again, with freedom & joy.
In this practice, we don't teach people one way of moving. We teach them how to constantly expand their arsenal of possibilities. Since moving is a dynamic process that keeps on asking us to adapt, so we can move smartly, stay agile, overcome pain and injury, and become more resilient.

Dive into FATHOM HIGH – a Feldenkrais based dance technique
Awareness through movement
28 July - 1st August 2024 in South Portugal
a magical 6 days Dance Retreat! Relax. Recharge. Reconnect.
My name is Meytal Blanaru, I’m a contemporary dancer & choreographer, a certified Feldenkrais® teacher and founder of the FATHOM HIGH dance technique.
My meeting with the Feldenkrais Method changed my life in every possible way. A past car accident left me with a chronic back injury, unable to dance. Feldenkrais was a last resource - not only did it heal me profoundly, but it also helped me gain such freedom and ease of motion in ways I never even imagined were possible. It improved every aspect of my dancing skills and taught me to deeply reconnect to my body with such kindness, playfulness and child-like curiosity. This became my deep motivation in teaching, or my life’s purpose - to enable and support others through a similar process.
