Post-Formation Nürnberg September 2024, “The shoulder girdle”

The Art of practicing the Feldenkrais method :

« a capacity to feel, sense, imagine, think and act in 3 dimensions «  

August 31 – September 4, 2024


The shoulder girdle, mobility of the arms, freedom of the head and the upper part of the chest.


Due to its light, fine and highly articulated structure, and its articulation with the spine at the level of the cervico-dorsal hinge (C7/D1), the shoulder girdle, as if suspended, allows great mobility of the arms in all directions of movement. The emergence of the neck and head from this cervical hinge ensures its rotation like a real periscope carrying the sense organs. It also contributes to the freedom of the upper part of the chest, allowing easier, more comfortable and functional respiratory development as well as an important relaxation of the throat…

The skeleton of the human being , as much as our brain, is designed to organize movement and action , involving dynamic balance,  orientation in space,  use of the arms and hands , mobility of the neck , allowing for the sensory organs to keep us in a constant relationship with our environment.

If the bones determine the solidity of the skeleton, the joints, by their configuration and their degree of mobility, define the potential for movement in the three planes of space.

Anatomical observation clearly shows us that the pelvis, due to its very dense and bony structure, has the function of ensuring our balance, the stability of our supports, the efficiency of our movements and the development of strength. The shoulder girdle, on the other hand, is made up of very light, fine and wonderfully articulated bones, and designed to allow us to express with great freedom our relationship to the world and to others, to act in a very fine and differentiated way, to use instruments and tools, to communicate, touch, feel and receive stimulation…


The numerous explorations offered will allow each participant to:

* Discover and better understand the different joints that animate the shoulder girdle, articulation between the head of the arm and the clavicle, between the clavicle and the sternum, between the neck and the dorsal thoracic spine (C7/D1), articulation between the first vertebrae dorsal…

* Develop real mobility of the scapula and its sliding on the ribs in all spatial directions, without which the arm cannot find its freedom of movement and the rib cage its functional engagement in respiratory development.

* Find relaxation in the shoulders and particularly in the different fibers of the “trapezius” muscles (relationship between the shoulder blade, the head and the dorsal column) on which many psychosomatic tensions linked to our way of living, our habits and acquired attitudes are fixed in the near past as in childhood

* Free the sternum and regain its suspension, allowing it to play its role as a true “figurehead” for our travels…

* Find more elasticity in all these links between the head and the rib cage, many of which pass through the throat, the suspensors of the larynx, etc.
