Do your eyes feel tired and strained?
Are you experiencing headaches or tension in your head and neck?
Would you like to learn how to counteract the effects of spending more time looking at your computer?
Join Fritha and Sarah for a Feldenkrais® workshop exploring the relationship of the eyes to the movement of the whole self, and the importance of relaxing the eyes to improve function.
Workshop will include exploration of Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® lessons and will include time for discussion and questions. No experience necessary – all are welcome!
