Unwinding Your Anxiety
"To every emotional state corresponds a personal conditioned pattern of muscular contraction without which the emotional state has no existence."
Habitual tension is profoundly exhausting. It robs us of our energy, restricts our breathing, and over time, can limit our freedom of movement. In addition to causing many physical problems, habitual tension is often linked to anxiety and other related emotional challenges. Habitual tension is not valuable or helpful in any way; it is only detrimental. Therefore, it makes sense to take steps to interrupt and change your own body pattern of stress and anxiety.
Luckily, feeling better is within easy reach. With this program, you will learn how to use the hidden capacities of your brain to create a healthier and calmer you. You will gain access to a more harmonious internal state in which your breathing becomes slow and full, movement becomes easier and more pleasurable, and your posture spontaneously improves.

"I highly recommend David Zemach-Bersin's online classes. I've completed three and keep learning with each new series. David's lessons are excellent, calming yet profound in scope. The Feldenkrais Access website is well organized, and I especially appreciate all the little extras you get for free."
