Anti-Gravity/Holding your head up

This morning workshop of Feldenkrais Awareness through Movement lessons offers gentle effective lessons that will restore a clear sense of skeletal support for carrying the head effortlessly on top of the spine…

The weight of the head (4.5-5kg) needs to be well supported by the spine, pelvis, and legs in order for us to stay upright, look ahead and around ourselves, and also to breathe easily.

As postural habits increasingly revolve around slumping forward / general flexion – whether due to long periods of device-use / sitting, injuries, or stress-related muscular tension – holding the head up can begin to feel like a huge effort.

Once the head is more fully supported by the skeleton, muscles around the neck, shoulders, and upper spine are released from doing all the heavy work, while the abdomen and diaphragm become more available for full, easy breathing.

Suitable for all levels of experience.
