An MP3 Downloadable file
A program introducing simple Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement lessons, to assist in relieving strain and preventing over-use of your neck muscles. Benefits include increased mobility, ease of movement and better alignment.
This CD is the first in a series of Feldenkrais lessons which address common issues relating to lack of mobility or pain in the neck and upper spine. As in all Feldenkrais studies, every lesson integrates movements of particular parts of the body to the entire skeleton in order to learn how to recognise how we over-use parts of ourselves to make specific actions,
and how to recover from strain and injury.
How to get the most out of these lessons.
Lesson 1 : Maintaining a Healthy Neck Part A (33mins)
Lesson A is done whilst sitting in a chair and is adaptable for those who may be bed-ridden, or even traveling in an aeroplane! In this lesson you will learn how to differentiate movements of your neck from movements of your trunk and shoulders. It is especially useful for keyboard operators, musicians or anyone who finds they would like to find core support in the trunk and pelvis for their head and neck rather than over- working and damaging the actual muscles along the neck.
Lesson 2 : maintaining a Healthy Neck Part B (33mins)
Lesson B is done sitting on the floor on a thick rug, with the legs crossed
tailor-fashion and sometimes lying on the back. This lesson addresses
similar issues of finding core support for your neck, and the relationship
of neck movements to eye movements, head movements, and movements in your
hips and pelvis. This lesson helps to relieve shoulder pain as well as neck
The CD format enables you to pause at any point to clarify a section of the lesson, or to rest between movements.
