In these workshops we will explore the integration of the neck into the spine, the role of the ribs in health of the neck and shoulders, and specifically the relationship of the last vertebra in the neck and the first vertebra of the upper back, namely C7 and T1. These two vertebrae form a cross road for transmission of force: vertically, from the ground via the pelvis to the head and neck, and horizontally, from one shoulder to the other. Often free transmission is not possible, and we end up with a bottleneck instead that does not allow “traffic” to flow freely and causes pain or reduced function.
Four Awareness through Movement® (ATM) lessons will bring greater awareness and understanding into this area, reducing tension and discomfort while at the same time increasing the functional length of the neck. You will feel greater freedom in the upper back, neck and shoulders, and your walk will become more balanced as your head shifts more easily from one foot to the other as you walk. It goes without saying that your breathing will improve as well!
Please dress comfortably, if you plan to attend.
