Free Introductory Class
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!
Benefits may include:
- Improved vision
- Relief from eye strain
- Increased ocular circulation
- Fewer tension headaches
- Easier eye movements
- Better balance
- Support for healthy posture and movement
"I've been doing the Healthy Eyes & Vision with Raz Ori and Seeing Clearly with David Webber lessons DAILY over the course of the past two months and am now in the process of repeating lessons at random. I've noticed significant, subtle changes in my “vision” and my ability to take principles of the lessons into my daily life. I often go without my glasses, which was something I had been instinctively doing as I could sense my eyes were more relaxed. I felt encouraged to make this a more routine practice thanks to the encouragement of both Ori and Webber. The central vision in my right eye is compromised with macular degeneration and now my vision has unexpectedly become more articulated."
