Embodied Learning: Focus on the Neck and Shoulders

By Elizabeth Beringer

The neck, shoulders and upper back are often a site of discomfort and difficulty, especially in this age of increasing computer use. This eight-session program utilizes an experiential, kinesthetic learning process that over time results in increasing comfort, improved posture and a more pleasurable movement experience overall.

The focus on the neck and shoulder area will necessarily involve your whole body/self in this movement-based learning process. The program includes sessions in a variety of positions designed to help support the development of new options in a wide range of activities.

"Overall, this is an excellent series. Elizabeth describes the movements of the ATMs in a way that is accessible, meaningful, and personable. Her voice is both soothing and engaging, and her relationships of the movement of the spine to standing and function are rich. I really love the whole series!"—Julie Lively, Occupational Therapist and Feldenkrais Practitioner
