Neurodynamic Lunch Hour: Your Muscles, with Ted Dimon
- 306 Russell
- 12/10/2013, 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM
you spend hours sitting in front of a computer? Do you get stiff? Does your
back hurt at times?
Then take time to Be Neurodynamic and come and figure out what you're doing during the day which contributes to those little aches and pains we all feel at times, and how to prevent them through body awareness, rather than recourse to drugs and treatment. We tell our muscles to tighten when we exercise and want muscle tension, but can we also tell our muscles to stop tightening when they get too tense? Come and join us to find out how, and bring your lunch with you.
Be Neurodynamic is an invitation to the TC Community from Dr. Theodore
Dimon, head of The Dimon Institute
and adjunct assistant professor at Teachers College, to share his work in
health and education. Dr. Dimon is the author of several books published by
North Atlantic: Your
Body, Your Voice (2011); The
Body in Motion: Its Evolution and Design (2010); Anatomy
of the Moving Body (2008); and The
Undivided Self (1999). He received his doctorate in 1987 from Harvard
University and wrote his dissertation on Performing
Arts, Pedagogy, and the Work of F. M. Alexander.
This series is sponsored by the Spirituality and Mind/Body Institute and Gottesman Libraries.
Instructional materials or weekly information sheets explaining how we are designed to move and function may be accessed via Pocketknowledge.
