Description
The carriage of the head is of prime importance for the ease and coordination of action and perception. Any improvements in the head and neck will also improve our feeling of uprightness, our perception of the space around us, our balance and our readiness to act in the world. In this workshop we will use Awareness Through Movement® lessons which help restore the full range of movement to the head, neck and chest. We will also discover: 1)how the use of the eyes influences the head neck and chest; 2)how twisting movements can help improve the neck;  and 3)how differentiating the head from the shoulders and chest can evoke a fuller range of movement and ease.

Feldenkrais® Resources Training Institute is pleased to offer Awareness Through Movement (ATM) workshops, open to both health professionals and the general public. These seminars are appropriate for beginning and ongoing students. Each workshop will focus on a different application of the Feldenkrais Method® and can be taken as a series or individually. These workshops also serve as an excellent prelude to our Professional Training Program.
