5. Reaching the Top: Your Head, Neck & Eyes

cover art
Three things you'll discover in this series: Your head can swivel and glide like a ball bearing. Your neck doesn't exist. Your eyes are connected to your back.

Join us to discover how to support your head more efficiently and pleasantly with your entire physical self, not just your neck. Ease in your upper body begins with clear support up and through your skeleton from the ground. You'll uncover patterns of self-use which actually interfere with your intention and find more useful choices.

Your eyes play a key role in assisting effortless movement. The six muscles which control your eyes also influence your face, neck, and back.

You have no anatomical neck. You have seven cervical vertebrae which are part of your spinal column, 33 in all. We all get into trouble when we move as if our heads are supported only by those seven small vertebrae at the top of the chain, rather than spreading the load throughout the spine.


Sit, stand, and walk with greater ease and pleasure.
Improve balance.


Angela Alston
I help formerly active people with sedentary jobs re-discover movement ease. I have a strong interest in working with performers, movers and meditators—dancers, actors, musicians—people whose instrument is their physical self. This arises from my own background in dance, theater, film, and meditation. My studies and interests have led me towards making the practice and teaching of Feldenkrais a way of life. Majoring in biology and philosophy in college. Being involved in performing arts all my life. Loving to walk and bike. The practice of meditation. Being inspired by my parents to always ask, “how can I be of service?”
