Balanced Vision Workshop
Release Eye Tension, Release Body Tension - a vision and movement workshop
Come experience a renewed sense of well-being by learning simple strategies to balance your vision and reduce eye strain.
Due to technology use, reading, or just from the habit of staring when worrying or thinking, most of us tend to strain our eyes without even noticing it.
When we fix and strain our eyes, our whole self responds to it. This can be perceived in the form of headaches, neck and shoulder tension, constricted breathing or even a tight pelvic floor.
Smart phones have added yet another challenge to our already strong cultural tendency to overuse central and near vision. In the constant movement of expansion and contraction that is characteristic of all living beings, we are spending too much time using our vision in the contracting, narrowing, closing phase. This not only affects our vision and our movements, but also our way of interacting with others and with the environment around us.
In this workshop, we’ll explore gentle movement lessons to balance our central vision with a more expanded, soft, peripheral gaze. In the process, we’ll notice what becomes more available to expand in our bodies, as well as in our perception.
Location: Movement Dialogues - 4805 Park Rd., Suite 200, Charlotte, NC
