Your neck holds your head (which weighs, on average, 10 – 11 lbs) up at the top of your body. With good postural organization, your head can balance atop your spine without stress or effort. But with poor postural organization, the muscles of your neck must work hard to hold your head up, and can easily become strained, overused, tense, sore, and injured.
In this three-hour workshop with David Zemach-Bersin, you will learn two ‘first-aid’ oriented, pain-relieving lessons to help you restore, improve, protect, and maintain the health of your neck.
“The Feldenkrais Method® is all about learning. That said, it’s harder to access our capacity for improvement if we are experiencing physical pain and discomfort. Physical discomfort makes ‘noise’ for our nervous system, creates tension and reduces our ability to create new neural pathways. Sometimes, we just want to get out of pain, and find relief. That’s what these lessons are for.”
David brings over forty years of clinical experience to his online approach. His lessons are highly accessible, effective, and remarkably suited to home use. David believes that every person’s nervous system is available for learning and improvement. And he is confident that the Feldenkrais Method can help!
Each participant will receive the workshop recordings. If you’d like a more interactive experience, we invite you to attend the workshops live, online! A team of Assistant Teachers and tech support staff are on hand during the live events to help answer your questions in real-time.
"David's teachings have changed my life. I now have a knowledge and understanding that I didn’t have before. His lessons have helped me deal with stress in a way I could not have done previously.”
