May 14 / Freeing Neck and Jaw Tension
With Roland Mathews
Many of us suffer from jaw tension or dysfunction (TMJ syndrome). Headaches, eyestrain, neck, and shoulder problems can be directly related to mouth and jaw tension. This workshop will use gentle somatic movements, based on the Feldenkrais Method, to effectively help reduce jaw pain and tension related to TMJ.
June 25 / A Flexible Back Is a Healthier Back
With Falk Feddersen
April 18 / Improved Alignment Leads to Increased Ease and Comfort: Focus on the Neck and Shoulders
Come join Elizabeth Beringer for a rejuvenating day of Mindful Movement
With institute director Elizabeth Beringer
11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
$85 preregistered; $95 at the door
In a world filled with chairs, computers and a lot of driving, strain often accumulates in the neck, shoulders and upper back. Posture, alignment, and stress patterns can contribute to a lack of ease in these areas. We will utilize an experiential, kinesthetic learning process to facilitate increased comfort and an overall more pleasurable movement experience. Elizabeth recently completed a new Feldenkrais audio program focusing on the neck and shoulders, and will teach related material.
One of the insights of the Feldenkrais approach is an understanding of how our larger movement patterns and habits can result in difficulty in a specific area, sometimes far from its source. The day will include sessions in a variety of positions to assist the participants in developing new perspectives and strategies for more vital and efficient action.

The Human Being – the human brain – is by design relational. We live in relationship: with ourselves, with others, with the greater world and with the highest and deepest that we can sense of imagine. How do we care, in health, life-giving easy for all of these relationships?
How do we listen to our needs and the needs of others? How do we care for the suffering of the world without being overwhelmed by it all.
Through meditations, guided awareness practices, conversations and the movement lessons of Moshe Feldenkrais, we will explore these questions. Embodied Life seminars with Russell invite a depth of exploration in an atmosphere of lightness, joy and restorative presence.Russell Delman has 40 years’ experience with Zen meditation, Feldenkrais, and Psychology. His most recent teachings also include Guided Inquiry based on Gendlin’s focusing technique. Russell offers seminars, retreats and Embodied Life Schools worldwide.
