Hello dear community!
I visited the foundation course in Berlin last weekend and started to introduce the learnt techniques into my everyday life since then. Something I already knew but got even clearer after learning the techniques during the foundation course is that my head is positioned too far forward. I was the classical example of "but now I look to the ground and cannot look up" after engaging the rib anchor during standing for example. I also learnt that I can get a good range of vision by using my eyes more, but still: I definitely have to work on repositioning my neck and head back and up with chin angled down. Whenever I try to do this I can feel the motion of letting my head float up opposing the rib anchor; in order to keep my ribcage anchored my abdominal muscles have to work more - which I totally get - but additionally and for me hard to explain is that I start to feel a soreness in my masseter jaw muscles during the movement.
I guess that I cannot be possibly the first one experiencing this soreness. Does anyone else reading this post have had this experience? If so, how did it evolve? Did it just pass after some time? Or is there something I am doing wrong possibly? Also: Is there any known connection between neck position and jaw muscle soreness or any explanation of why this could be happening?
I would be glad if someone could take some time answering my questions. Thank you so much in advance!
