Improve your ability to sense and change poor body organization which contributes to repetitive strain injuries, stiffness and pain. If you have chronic discomfort, this information can help you intervene so your body can heal. If you experience intermittent tension, or pain which comes and goes, start now to prevent injury and feel better fast. Using the Feldenkrais Method, you will learn healthier movement patterns which decrease excessive effort associated with strain. Participants improve their self awareness, and learn to make adjustments in their actions which both heal and prevent unhealthy tension patterns from progressing into a chronic injury. Exercises may be done sitting in a chair, or in other configurations (such as standing or lying down) which increase the effectiveness of the content. "Chronic Condition Friendly" and "Older Adult Friendly" class. Please wear comfortable, nonrestrictive clothing. Instructor: Jean Elvin, Guild Certified Feldenkrais PractitionerCM since 1997. She has special training in dealing with repetitive strain and other self-use issues commonly found in the workplace. Please bring your own mat to class. Mats will not be provided.
