The eyes organize the spine. They can help it to turn better and become more elongated. Eyes, neck and back are intimately connected.
The potential benefits of this seminar include better eyes, improved memory, good posture and more mobility in your entire spine. Eyes do not have to deteriorate when you get older. Glasses are not the cure for bad vision; They are merely a good crutch. If your eyes don’t work as well as you want them to, you can improve them and your spine with these wonderful Feldenkrais eye lessons.
The Feldenkrais Method® is a very advanced approach to body-mind integration and healing. We learn to re-pattern our movement as we develop awareness of how our brain and body co-function while moving. Feldenkrais Method® share many of the same principles and techniques with qigong. These movements are simple and gentle and can be repeated at home once you learn them.
