Ground Force Reaction:  Accessing the Energy that Heals All Injuries

In Yoga Asana practice we are playing with force transmission patterns in our body. In order to heal injuries our body must learn a new way of working with the energies of tension & compression. Our practice can be used to explore new ways of moving strength through underused pathways of neuromuscular connections. This builds support and takes the load off of the injured site so healing can begin. This course is about building a “sense map” of our own body and how to move forces through the body-wide continuum of muscles, fascia, bones, and organs.  It is about learning how to “sense”, increase our proprioception of where our strength is and where it is not and how to direct the energy of Ground Force Reaction through our body into the areas that need it.

Hand’s-on Bodywork to Increase Breath Potential and Help Dysfunctional Breathing Patterns

Breath Function is near the top of the hierarchy of importance when working with Yoga, Meditation, and Healing. This means if breath potency improves then many other systems in the body also improve in functioning, both physiologically and mental/emotionally. This class combines the latest research on breath, heart, & brain studies, experiential breath work  and bodywork techniques. Class goals include: develop greater understanding of the mechanics and physiology of breath, refine our ability to sense breath in ourselves and others, and use Hands-on MyoFascial Release techniques & Pranayama to loosen restrictions on the breath in the Chest, Abdomen, Diaphragm & Neck.

A Guided Tour of Self-Discovery: Touching our Pelvic Bones, Muscles, & Ligaments

Take a short asana break, lay down and go on a journey of self-discovery. This class is an experiential anatomy adventure into your own pelvic bones. You will be guided through hands-on self-massage and palpation techniques of your Illium, Pubis, Ischium bones, Sacro-Illiac joint and the major ligaments and muscles of the pelvis. This is deeply relaxing, self-caring, and educational simultaneously. This is not partner work. You will be working only on yourself.

“To Tuck or Not To Tuck and the Relative Notion of the Ideal Spinal Curve”

Though most every spine is composed of the same number of bones with similar shapes, each spine is like a snowflake, different and unique in the way it transmits force and has forces transmitted through it. What is ideal is distinct to each spine! This course is a quick study of the Spine, the common ways the spine goes into dysfunction, and then ways of assessing our own personal spinal compensation patterns and techniques for addressing them. This class includes hand’s on bodywork and yoga asana exercises.
