Increase the Potency of your Touch - Healing Touch Techniques for Yoga Therapists & Bodyworkers

Our hands communicate in a language beyond words. They can relay Trust, Healing, Pleasure, Aggression, Fear, Nervousness… This class is about developing the skill of Sensing with our hands and refining how we use our body, our heart and our intention when we touch others. This class will help your hands become very clear and powerful with the intention they communicate during hand’s on work as a Yoga Teacher, a Parent, a Lover, a Friend, or as a Therapeutic Practitioner. You will be learning Asana Hand’s on Assists and Bodywork Touch Techniques with a partner. You can come by yourself and be partnered up during the class.

Type of Workshop: Two-Hour Workshop

Level: All Levels

Context: 70% practice, 30% Lecture

Hands on Bodywork to Relax the Nervous System

Our body is designed to heal quicker when we reduce our stress levels and regularly access quality states of relaxation. This class is about using our hands to help generate these relaxed states in another person so that deeper levels of healing can be accessed. We will learn about areas within the body containing nerve fibers that when touched in a certain way will stimulate a tranquility response throughout. The class goal is that awareness of these zones and the simplicity of the technique will become big tools for bringing more peacefulness into our lives and others.

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.

YogaBodyworkers 10-Day Training - Thailand

This training is for people who want to learn how to heal themselves so they can learn how to help heal others. By exploring your own asymmetries, injuries and anatomical characteristics through 10 days of yoga, bodywork, & ceremony, you will be educated how to apply and prescribe yoga postures and bodywork to initiate recovery and improve intrinsic mobility patterns.

You will learn to feel how the relationships of muscular/fascial patterns shape the physical body and how it moves and breathes by exploring your own anatomical characteristics, asymmetries and injuries through ten days of yoga, bodywork & ceremony

You will be trained to understand, feel and see anatomy through breath and movement patterns in a whole new way.

You will learn to see how emotions get stuck in the body and work with how the nervous system and breath respond.

You will experience the difference between practicing “thinking mode versus feeling mode” and learn effective ways to strengthen your ability to hold attention and discern deeper levels of feeling.

Our famous CARESS is the practical foundation of our bodywork philosophy.  It is the backbone of all touch techniques and the most profound approach to communicating with the body.

How it works is best displayed in how mom or dad soothes their young child with touch, or how a dog and dog-lover communicate through play and petting. The Medicine of the Caress comes through in how it communicates to the receiver that they are perfect as they are, they are worthy of being touched in a way that makes them feel good, and that they are safe, loved, and cared for. 

Without the Caress as a backbone most forms of bodywork tends toward being mechanistic. With the Caress, the body’s neuro-muscular-fascial-fatty-lymphatic-vascularized sleeve learns how to uptake pleasure and meet it’s own tension in ways that release and process out through the entire body. 

As a YogaBodyworker graduate you will be equipped with educational and practical tools that enhance movement and mobility within yourself and clients and to apply touch in a highly skilled way.

Daily Outline:

• Chanting & Ceremony - Singing & Dancing!

• 2.5 hour yoga practice with Senior Guardian Forrest Yoga Teachers Brian & Jambo

• Training in MyoFascial Release Bodywork for Scar Tissue, Injuries, Muscular & Joint Pain

• Anatomy Training in seeing relationships of muscle patterns to common postural & joint dysfunctions

• Learn to work one-on-one with a student

• Work deeply on your physical injuries, emotional or spiritual blocks

• Bond with a like-minded community
