Here’s some news: It’s the eyes that influence the muscle tonus throughout the whole body. What that means is that working gently through the eyes can effect not only the neck and shoulders but also places as far distant as the mid-back, low-back, hips, and even the feet.
What? That’s crazy … In a good way. It’s learning how to relax the eyes in very particular ways, after over-using them on our devices, over-focusing in reading and driving, watching TV, having our eyes corrected to the Nth degree, etc.
The questions I’m asking in this workshop are: What effect has all this close-in attention through the eyes had on your body? Can these movement sequences lure your body back to its relaxation mode in short order?
Let’s experience these questions together in specific ways that Moshe Feldenkrais came up with decades ago and which are now more vital and interesting than ever. Discover how the relaxation of the eyes really does effect our balance, coordination, uprightness, and over-all ease in order to deal with all that life is asking of us these days.
I’m so hoping to see you there … with a soft gaze of course!
