Guidance to Begin:
Clear and Refresh. Get ready to access the major control panel in your brain. These vision lessons improve the entire brain function for greater perception, clarity, deep relaxation and lightness in your life. Take a break in your day to refresh and clear your brain from clutter. Like the Breathing Collection, vision lessons improve performance and ease for the entire body for sports, hobbies and work.
Feldenkrais lessons emphasize moving with ease instead of effort, different from traditional exercises. This series helps you lighten your shoulders and arms to experience the creative flow from your heart.
Begin with “Tuning Eyes and Brain ” a helpful lesson to clear tension from all positions of the eyes. If the movements feel difficult, you can modify the positions to be more comfortable and make the movements smaller or do them in your imagination. With all Eye Lessons – be extra careful to move gently. The muscles around the eyes are very delicate and can strain easily. Each lesson can be repeated many times. *If you feel pain or dizziness, please stop the lesson and work under the guidance a trained professional.
These Vision lessons benefit and improve the quality of all the other series since we use our eyes to organize so much of all movement, including our thoughts! This series can deeply shift old patterns of tension and resistance in how you move and sense yourself. If you have limitations or pain with any of the positions or movements in this series, try the Breathing lessons, Balance #1 and the Head & Neck lessons.
