Please join the Greater New York Dysphonia Support Group for a virtual meeting on Tuesday, June 6, 2023, at 6:30 PM ET.
Our guest speaker will be Joyce Bendavid, who will introduce us to the Feldenkrais Method. With almost ten years of experience, Joyce will explain what it is and then demonstrate it. During this lesson on the Feldenkrais Method, you will be guided through a sequence of gentle movements as you become aware of their connections to your whole being. As you attend to the improving quality of your movements, unnecessary muscular tensions can reorganize. This neuromuscular re-education allows for overall improvement in all areas of daily function, including ease of your breath which can help voicing.
We were introduced to Joyce by one of our group’s long-time members, who has found practicing the Feldenkrais Method helpful in managing the symptoms associated with his voice disorder. We hope you will join us for this interesting presentation!
