Andreja Semolič / Founder of pedokinetika / Developmental Functional Approaches

Throughout the many years of work in the field of motor development Andreja Semolič incorporated her knowledge and experience into DFA (Developmental Functional Approaches) and she innovatively justifies these in the concept of early development, which she patented under the name of pedokinetika®. /OAMI/OHIM/UUNT reg. št. 009477928, reg.date.: 11. 5. 2011, http://oami.europa.eu.

The founder began to practice this particular activity with children in development in 2003. In 2008, she upgraded her work, experience and former studies with the Feldenkrais method studies.

Throughout the many years of work in the field of motor development she has incorporated her knowledge and experience into DFA (Developmental Functional Approaches) and she innovatively justifies these in the concept of early development, which she patented under the name of pedokinetika®.

The main difference is that the Feldenkrais method identifies the resulting patterns evolving over the development period and provides the nervous system identification of these, distinction between unconnected baselines and establishes new patterns that are optimal and above all functional and allow the person to self-regulate the newly established patterns and is active in every aspect.

By the means of pedokinetika Andreja not only observes the development as it is reflected in a natural way in children up to the independent stance on their feet, but she also establishes the key moments helping their parents that by reflection and awareness of their actions, on how to lift, turn, shift or merely daily nurture a child, are entering into contact with the child in a natural way, only when they cross the limits arisen due to unclear beliefs and fears (involvement in harmful habits and patterns that essentially due to unawareness make the lightness of living more difficult).

In the relationship with parents Andreja first uses the Feldenkrais method and when they raise their awareness she continues with pedokinetika and shows how to cooperate with a child on a daily basis.

In her practice center she highlights the importance of contact and touch in the early stages of infant development, opens the paths of conscious parenting, accompanies pregnant women to a targeted focus on the first 6 weeks after childbirth, performs GrowingSmart programs of pedokinetika® from birth to 4 years of age, educates future pedokinetika® instructors and performs ATM® lessons (Awarenes Trough the Movement) and FI® lessons (Functional Integration®) in accordance with the Feldenkrais® method.

Together with her successors the founder informs about the natural path of development and logical connections based on natural laws that are the drive of development and formation of personality structures of self-activation and self-regulation in relation to the integration into the environment which we are a part of.

Andreja Semolič is a sports pedagogue (University of Ljubljana), certificated Feldenkrais practitioner( Feldenkrais Institut Vienna), developing her own exploration of body and mind as an inevitable whole through an in-depth improvement of integrating Feldenkrais® method with the latest findings and discoveries in neurobiology and psychodynamic development processes. Throughout the many years (since 1994) of work in the field of motor development she has incorporated her knowledge and experience into DFA (Developmental Functional Approaches) and she innovatively justifies these in the concept of early development, which she patented under the name of Pedokinetika®. http://oami.europa.eu.
