Feldenkrais Project in Nicaragua

Feldenkrais Volunteer Opportunity in Nicaragua

Robert Trummer, of Nicaraguan and Swiss background is doing a project called, "Feldenkrais Without Borders " in Grenada, Nicaragua from the 5th to the 17th of August 2013. In this project practitioners will be working mainly with special needs children (and their families, caretakers and professionals when possible). Below are the details that I have. Feel free to post a comment if you want to know more. I will ask Robert to respond.

There is only space for a couple more Feldenkrais practitioners to join and share this unique experience, don't wait!

The dates this year are from Monday August 5th to Saturday August 17th (two weeks) 2013. It is in the rainy season but usually it does not rain much during the day and you will be happy for the cooler air ( temp 23 to 31 Celsius, 72 to 88 Fahrenheit).

Anybody interested in volunteering on an other date, any time of the year, is welcome to do so. Get in contact with Robert and he can help arrange your stay. Robert has a house in Granada (his mother was Nicaraguan) which you can use for free. The house has 3 bathrooms, two huge rooms (7mx7m) and two smaller ones, it also has interior gardens and a huge corridor which is actually bigger than the rooms. He can send you pictures of the house. People who want to stay longer can keep using the house, tell him and you can work out the details.

The places you will be volunteering at are in Granada (http://english.corazoncontentogranada.org) and Managua (http://fsdinternational.org/node/215).

Here are several YouTube video about the organizations that Robert sent me. They are in Spanish, but if you do not speak Spanish, you can stil get a feel for the children and what help they need:

Again, leave a comment if you want more information and I will ask Robert to respond.

cheers! - Ryan


  1. Hi There

    I am interested in hearing more about this opportunity and what the work would entail.

    Please feel free to email me at the above email address. My website is down right now, but I can provide you with information when we speak.

    Many thanks,

    Anna Lisa

  2. I’m very interested in participating. Even if this August doesn’t work, I’d be interested in participating at another time. As it happens, I’m involved with another charity that’s looking to do something in South/Central America, and Nicaragua is one of the countries that has been looking favorable to work with. So it may turn out to be a perfect synergy.
    Please have Robert contact me. I’d love to talk to him. 🙂
