John Kucera speaks of his experiences with The Feldenkrais Method and how it has brought him greater body awareness in his training and while racing on snow. In the summer of 2004 the Canadian Alpine Ski acquired a new physical conditioning coach by the name of Kurt Kothbauer. Kurt happened to be not only a highly credible coach for conditioning alpine skiers (he is Austrian and worked with the likes of Herman Maier and Stefan Eberharter while with the Austrian alpine ski teams for 8 years), but he is also a Feldenkrais Practitioner! Needless to say, the method and principles of Moshe Feldenkrais dramatically challenged and changed the way in which the Canadian Alpine Ski Team approached their physical training routines, warm-up and recovery protocols. Keep an eye out for these athletes during the 2010 Winter Olympics!
