Country:

Where: Online – Zoom

When: Every Thursday at 19h CET

Costs for participants: Free or pay what you wish.

Improving the organization of the neck, shoulders and jaw.
Releasing tension, pain, blockages.

I am teaching online Feldenkrais lesson series focused on the head, neck, jaw, face, and eyes.
Movement patterns, tightness and unease in these parts are usually all linked together and are very common. They can be often experienced as pain, TMJ issues, headaches, stress, restricted breathing or bad posture.

You will learn how to improve the use of this area of the body and integrate it with the rest of yourself.

It can have an impact on your well being by:

– Reducing chronic muscle tension
– Improving flexibility and range of motion
– Completing tasks with less effort
– Improving sleep and breathing
– Reducing stress and anxiety
– Improving balance, coordination and posture
– Increasing athletic performance

 

How does it work?
Restructure your neuromuscular patterns to move without pain.

Classes are designed as movement inquiry. You will explore how you use and experience your body, and how you can improve it.
I will guide you verbally in slow, gentle movement sequences. This process intends to change deep unconscious movement habits, that are causing unnecessary tension in the body, and to create space for more efficient use of self.
During the class, you will be mainly moving in laying position or sitting on the floor and following my verbal guidance. There is no need to look at the screen, and your attention is free to focus on your own experience.

Born in Rovigo in 1994 under the artistic direction of Teatro del Lemming, Festival Opera Prima became immediately an event able to lead to critical attention a new theatrical generation that, in the 90s, was completely excluded from the Italian theatre scene. OPERA PRIMA became an "home" and a reference point for this generation, that soon proclaimed itself “Generation of the Invisible Theatres”. The Festival was really important to support those artists stand out. In recognition of this activity, in 1996 the Festival was the winner of the UBU "Giuseppe Bartolucci" prize, awarded by a jury led by the critic Franco Quadri.
Coherently with its history, this new edition of Opera Prima wants to host and enhance the multiplicity of trends and researches in the contemporary theatre scene.
