"A Jewish Narrative"
Thursdays, 11:00 - 12:00
Feldenkrais For All
Tuesdays, March, 3, 10, 17 & 24, 16:00-17:00
We spend long hours sitting: working at the computer, driving/riding a car, watching TV - all these activities keep us in a frozen and passive position and we end up with back and neck pain, eye strain, shallow breath and overall stiffness and fatigue.
This course will help you use your body in such a way that sitting becomes more dynamic and you can relieve muscle tension in your back, neck and shoulders. This will make the activities that you are engaged in more productive, and will improve your overall posture. 
The Feldenkrais Method was developed in the 50s by the Israeli physicist and Judo master Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais. It is a learning system for improving moving and functioning through self awareness.
Members: NIS 140.  Non-members: NIS 180
