Three sessions with guest eurythmist Barbara Bressette-Mills

Tuesdays, January 17, 24, 31, 2023, 8:15-9:30 AM PST

Too much screen time giving you eye strain, neck aches and headaches? Eurythmy can help!

Through encouraging inner warmth, flexibility, and breathability, we can release the stress from our head/nerve sense system and rejuvenate our life forces.

In the first session, we will work on ways to breathe through our organism in relation the dimensions of space. We’ll work with rhythms, polarities, the breathing gestures of the vowels, and foot work that can encourage flexibility and mobility in visual accommodation.

We will build on this breathing work in the second and third sessions, adding specific gestures and movements in space that address tension and stress so as to calm the eyes and loosen the neck and spine.

Pre-Requisites: None, Beginner Friendly

All classes are offered freely, but you are encouraged to participate in our energy exchange. In acknowledgement of the widely varying financial situations of all people, there is no fixed price for this work, but we suggest a donation of $10-$30 for each eurythmy and each lecture class.
