Looking for upper-body strength and coordination? Here's a way to reduce pain and discomfort in your hands and arms while increasing your power and strength. Whether it's pain and soreness from working a keyboard or any repetitive motions with your hand and arms, these lessons are for you.

Donna Ray is a Feldenkrais trainer and psychotherapist who developed these lessons after recovering from her own arm and neck injuries due to a car accident. The lessons are clearly taught and easy to follow. They focus on increasing the strength in the arms and hands by improving overall movement efficiency and organization. These lessons are recommended only for those with prior Feldenkrais Method experience. We recommend it only to those with previous experience with Awareness Through Movement lessons.
