Important for a healthy respiratory system. Enhance your lung health as you straighten your spine. Eva will be offering live feedback to students during this interactive workshop.
Through the easy and gentle movements prescribed in the Feldenkrais Method, we learn to recognize and eliminate many of the common habits that interfere with deep breathing and good spinal organization. This workshop will focus on the diaphragm and lungs, neck, 7th cervical vertebrae, and how to lengthen rounded backs or scoliosis from the inside out.
We know that the diaphragm works, day in and day out, to move our lungs. Did you know the diaphragm also has an intimate relationship with the heart and the neck? The 7th cervical vertebrae- with many nerves going down the arms and the spine – is the key vertebrae in this connection. Dr. Feldenkrais once said: “We would not have neck problems if our lungs could glide freely.”
The diaphragm is a large muscle in the center of our body that is badly understood and neglected. When it does not move well, the diaphragm not only hampers oxygen intake but also pulls on our chest and neck.
Through our mindful movement today, we’ll help the 7th cervical vertebrae to communicate with the diaphragm and lungs, freeing up the neck!
You’ll take 2 lessons with a water break in between. We plan to record the lesson to make it available to workshop attendees for a small fee.
