Caring For Our Necks

The inspiration for this workshop is to share some of the insights I gained from suffering and subsequently healing from a serious neck injury: a herniated disk for which an operation was eventually recommended. I chose the self-healing path instead and now I’m well on the way to recovery. Though I wouldn’t wish the injury on anyone, I feel nonetheless that I have an enhanced awareness of how I feel and use my neck as a result of the process I went through.

In this workshop, I’ll share some of the practices that helped me through this healing process: ways of thinking and understanding the neck in anatomical terms; ways of using orientation to the external environment to support easier alignment of my neck; ways to work with with the neck through; and at least two Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement classes on each day of the course.
