Discover the connection between your lower back and neck. Learn to gently heal yourself and ease your discomfort. Since the spine is a chain of vertebra, there is a correspondence between the neck and the lower back. By aligning your neck you will realign your lower back. In this workshop we approach the alignment and mobility from both ends.
The Feldenkrais Method is a wonderful and potent method to rebalance, realign and heal areas in our movement coordination. The method is slow-moving, very gentle, and only requires a curiosity about our own movement habits. Some of those habits are causing limitations, pain, inflammation and over-exertion. We’ve learned certain unhealthy habitual movements and postures so long ago that we may no longer recognize them or know that we can actually change our old patterns. With the Feldenkrais Method we can recognize those hindering habits and find better ways of moving that are healthy, strengthening and pain free. This does not only happen on the physical plane but also ripples out into the rest of one’s life.
