We are delighted to present Feldenkrais Trainer, Raz Ori, with a series of classes to improve your eye health.
Over millions of years, our visual system has evolved to be our dominant sense organ. Exquisitely complex, it allows us to see colors and to perceive the world around us in three dimensions. It gives us peripheral vision as well as the ability to focus on fine details, and it makes it possible for us to detect motion and move while fixing our gaze.
But modern life is altering the way we use our eyes. Today, people of all ages are experiencing eye discomfort, tension, and loss of visual acuity. Why? Because when we focus on screens, our visual system has to work in a very limited and restricted way. Over time, this diminishes the health of our eyes. Without intervention, we can become habituated to using our eyes in ways that lead to eye strain, fatigue, poor circulation, and visual impairments.
Raz Ori has spent the past decade studying the role that our eyes play in our perceptions and actions. In this series of live, online classes, he will present Feldenkrais lessons to help you improve each aspect key to healthy eyes. Learn new tools for self-care as you discover new ways to improve your ocular circulation and reduce muscular tension. Improve the organization of your eyes individually, together, and with your whole self, and re-activate some of the natural visual biological abilities that are no longer present in our daily life. As your eye health improves, your mobility, posture, balance, and sense of wellbeing will improve, as well!
This series will be taught in English.
Benefits may include:
- Improved vision
