I recommend to book all 3 sessions for lasting results and deeper understanding, yet each day can be taken by itself.
Eyes are not only important for seeing and the Jaw troubles can be dealt with!
Because the movement of our eyes organizes the movements of our body, our vision impacts and interacts with every movement we make throughout our whole body, as well as how we feel and think.
Vision is the primary sense through which we experience the world. Unfortunately, the quality and clarity of our vision can weaken and degrade over time or we have developed bad habits of tension already early on. However, through easy and gentle movements as prescribed in the Feldenkrais Method, we can learn to recognize and eliminate many of the most common habits that interfere with easy, effortless vision and good spinal organization. We can also learn new skills that transform the use of our eyes, helping us to see more clearly.
As our thoughts move busily here and there, our eyes respond and move busily here and there.
When our neck and posture is tight and tense, our eyes will be tight and tense.
When our breathing is held or frozen, our eyes will be held and fixed.
When our jaw is tight our eyes and neck are tight.
As above so below if the jaw is tight the pelvis and iliac sacral joint tends to be tight.
This Training will not only give you a vision improvement but the practical knowledge and skills necessary to help yourself or individuals who suffer from jaw pain or dysfunction, which is often linked to seemingly unrelated challenges, including migraine headaches and eye strain. When the jaw releases the neck improves and even shoulder pain can subside.
The by-product of this form of training is a relaxed body, easy breathing and a quiet clear mind. Movements feel fluid.
This Intensive is a wonderful opportunity to get informed and learn to release tension by effortless
movements that are done lying down and were called by Tai Chi Master Yan Yang, NYC
‘Lying down Qigong’!
With these wonderful exercises people have healed severe vision problems like in the case of Toronto based Feldenkrais Practitioner David Webber http://www.feldenkraiscentre.com/pdfs/DWebberArticle.pdf
The 3rd training day of this series takes place March 25 adding lungs and diaphragm.
