Improve the organization of your neck and shoulders to improve your experience of life.
David Zemach-Bersin is one of the most knowledgeable and experienced Feldenkrais Teachers in the world. During this time of the pandemic, he has dedicated himself to sharing his understanding of how the power of neuroplasticity can be used for health and healing, online.
Good neuromuscular organization of our neck and shoulders is important to our physical and emotional well-being. The muscles of our neck and shoulders are intricately linked to our stress response, making us vulnerable to developing damaging habits of tension in our neck and shoulders. Over time, these habits tend to interfere with both our comfort and mobility. Without us noticing, the muscles attached to our neck and shoulders become chronically contracted, shortening and compressing our neck, and over time, leading to pain, constricted breathing, anxiety, jaw pain, back pain, and headaches.
This unique, six-week online series with David Zemach-Bersin will provide you with the tools you need to interrupt habit-patterns involving unnecessary tension and contraction in your neck and shoulders. You will learn innovative ways to reduce pain and anxiety, and improve your posture, breathing and well-being. Join us and learn new ways to liberate yourself.
