Vision TREK – Awareness Through Movement – Feldenkrais – 6 class series
Behind all movement is intention, and with intention we look and make a plan to move. Central to easy, free movement, breath and life is sight.
The problem we are facing is long days on the computer, scrolling through phones with hands – this means the position of the eye don’t change as much. We get used to to the habit of seeing short distances and moving with other parts than our eyes. But, the movement of our eyes is so central to how we move – and often the very first part of a movement.
So, can we improve our vision!?
THE ANSWER IS YES!!!
By focusing not on what you see, but HOW you see and what you FEEL. And that’s exactly what we’re doing in this series.
FREE LESSON :
RE-EDUCATION OF THE EYES : This is a basic introduction to the magic of Feldenkrais and your brain!
We will be focusing on coordinating the movement of the eyes with the movement of the body.
Every Saturday, 1PM – 2PMhr on Zoom.
From the 16 Octobee (free class) to the 27th November.
What you will gain from this series :
– clearer short and long distance vision.
– Better focus
– Improving the eyes improves movement; so coordination, balance and mobility will improve.
How does it work?
→ In these Awareness Through Movement classes, I verbally lead you through a sequence of movements all laying down on your back, sitting, standing, or other various comfortable positions. These precisely structured movement explorations involve thinking, sensing, moving and feeling.
→ By increasing awareness, you will learn to abandon habitual patterns of movement and develop new alternatives, resulting in improved flexibility and coordination, less pain, more comfort. It helps counter anxiety by understanding the effect on the body. It really just makes you feel taller, more grounded and relaxed – and who doesn’t want that! Doing Feldenkrais is not only for chronic symptoms or pain, it’s also used to increase skill, to open yourself up to new ideas, find choice in absence, and secure proper and easy aging!
→ Many Awareness Through Movement lessons are based on developmental movements and ordinary functional activities (reaching, standing, lying to sitting, looking behind yourself, etc.). Some are based on more abstract explorations of joint, muscle, and postural relationships. Lessons are fully accessible to those with varying movement possibilities – because lessons can even work in the imagination. Sounds like magic because it is!! The magic of the brain!
