Tension Relief for Neck & Back with Easy Breathing: Feldenkrais/Smart Moves Workshop with Eva Geueke

May 19 @ 2:30 pm - 5:30 pm

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?
