Learn to breathe well, and you’ll lose that pain in your neck… Wait, what?!?
Surprisingly, learning to move the diaphragm and ribcage can unlock neck tension, scoliosis and immobility in the spine! Proper breathing provides huge benefits, including mental health! Oxygen is our primary source of energy, our lifeline, even before water and food: breathe well and everything changes.
In this workshop you get acquainted with your biggest muscle, the diaphragm. Once you learn to ‘drive’ this ‘motor’ in the center of your body, you move everything connected to it with greater ease. The diaphragm and the musculature between the ribs learn to work together. Your ribcage frees up and softens, and your spine elongates. The breath benefit travels up through your thoracic spine into your neck! Who knew?
What others say about the Feldenkrais Method:
“I suffered a back injury on top of scoliosis for 8 years until a Feldenkrais practitioner asked me, ‘Do you know that you don’t need to be in that pain?’ And, thanks to Feldenkrais, she was right.” – Renée Tillotson, Director, Still & Moving Center
“… It has allowed me to play pain free golf, without worrying about injury.” – Duffy Waldorf, PGA Tour Golfer
“… It has had an enormous effect on the way I run and on the way I live my life. My knee problem vanished. I’ve increased my mileage considerably without a trace of difficulty. And I’m running faster.” – Bruce Holmes, Runner’s World
“Feldenkrais has given me the power to take responsibility for any habits that don’t serve me, and the skills to transcend them.” – David Fein
“ … It has taught me how to shift a moment of pain into a lifetime of curiosity.” – Buffy Owens
“Movement is life. Life is a process. Improve the quality of the process and you improve the quality of life itself.” – Moshe Feldenkrais
