Re-balance, restore and realign forgotten muscles, connective tissue and organs. Usually when we think of muscles we think of the bigger muscles like hamstrings or stomach muscles. Yet we rarely give attention to many important small muscles, such as ones that move: the sphincter, the mouth, eyes or the vertebra of spine, deep. These muscle groups are often very unbalanced, just as one side of a person’s face and mouth may move quite differently than the other. That crooked and inefficient usage shows an inherent imbalance in the system. Organs like the lungs and the intestines can be inhibited to work efficiently because of tight inner muscles.
With this Intensive you will be surprised about the results once you start bringing movement with awareness to balance these unaware parts of yourself. By doing the Feldenkrais work for 3 consecutive days you give yourself the chance to transform things in your life that go way beyond your musculature. The 3 days build upon each other yet workshops can be taken singularly.
9/18 Ha! What about easy, efficient Breathing?!?
Lungs, diaphragm, intercostal, nostrils, vocal chords all will be part of this evenings movement lessons. As oxygen is more crucial then food for life we want to improve lung function and learn to use one of our biggest muscles in our system well, the diaphragm. This will be also beneficial for our Thoracic spine.
9/19 Unexpected Alignments
Elvis ‘The Pelvis’ has also a tall spine and a good voice…! Improvements in pelvic floor, diaphragm and palate lead to alignment of the entire spine!
9/20 Clear Eyes and Relaxed Neck!
Eyes are the mirror of the soul! When eyes are clear and flexible memory may improve and the neck is soft as well. We will be working with muscles that move the eyes and lead to the neck. Eyesight can be improved and with that flexibility for the neck! We also soften the jaw.
