    What you'll learn

    Welcome to my course Feldenkrais for neck pain :)

    The Feldenkrais Method, named after its founder Dr. Moshé Feldenkrais, is a unique approach to somatic learning.

    Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement lessons (ATMs) teach you how to move more efficiently and improve your self-awareness.

    This course focuses on the main movements of our neck:

    - Turning

    - Tilting

    - Nodding

    The movements will be explored in different positions (lying on the back or side and in sitting). You will learn how to do these neck movements in a healthy functional way. This will make your neck more flexible and reduce pain.

    The movements are gentle and can be done by almost anybody, no matter how old or physically fit you are.

    How is a Feldenkrais lesson done:

    At the beginning you start with a "body scan", which is a short awareness exercise to sense your current state. Then you try a reference movement to feel how difficult or easy it is. The main part is the actual movement lessons. You will do a sequence of small and slow movement exercises, that help you to reorganize your movement patterns. At the end of the lesson you will come back to the body scan to see if your sensations have changed and you will repeat the reference movement to sense if it has become easier.

    See you inside :)

    (DISCLAIMER: The movement exercises in this course must be done slowly and gently and are performed at your own risk. I will not take any responsibility if an injury occurs. If you are not sure, whether you can take this course or not, please consult your doctor or physical therapist.)
