Join us to discover how to support your head more efficiently and pleasantly with your entire physical self, not just your neck.
Ease in your upper body begins with clear support up and through your skeleton from the ground. You'll uncover patterns of self-use which actually interfere with your intention and find more useful choices.
Your eyes play a key role in assisting effortless movement. The six muscles which control your eyes also influence your face, neck, and back.
You have no anatomical neck. You have seven cervical vertebrae which are part of your spinal column, 33 in all. We all get into trouble when we move as if our heads are supported only by those seven small vertebrae at the top of the chain, rather than spreading the load throughout the spine.
Join us whether or not you’ve attended other workshops in the Discover Yourself series.
All you need are:
• A blanket or mat
• Loose-fitting clothes
Discover Yourself from the Ground Up, upcoming workshops:
September 24 "Moving with Your Power Center - Meet Your Pelvis"
November 12 "Climbing Higher: Arms, Shoulders & Hands"
December 10 "Reaching the Top: Your Head, Neck & Eyes"

The Feldenkrais Method® is a unique, potent approach to improving human movement and catalyzing learning and change based on principles of physics, neuroscience and physiology, and the conditions under which the nervous system learns best. Moshe Feldenkrais, D.Sc. (1904-1984), a physicist and the first Western black belt in judo, developed the techniques and theory.
Angela Alston helps people reconnect with their innate strength using the Feldenkrais Method. She has practiced meditation and Feldenkrais® since 1996, and has taught since 2010. Learn more about training with Angela at Roots of Strength: https://rootsofstrength.net/.
