Mapping the Body: Recognizing Successes & Principles in the Application of Fascial Movement
June 21, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm EDT
An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until June 24, 2018
A 4 day workshop for yoga, pilates, and movement teachers.
When we approach a yoga class, we bring our bodies and the stories we have accumulated during this life. We carry injuries, both physical and emotional. They have changed the postural and structural alignments that exist between the bones, muscles, fascia, nerves and organs.
In class we ask students to move their body according to predetermined sequences and adhere to shapes according to poses. How do the patterns that live in a particular body fit into shapes of those poses? How does an individuals particular somatic history fit a predetermined design? Are our students particular needs getting addressed as we guide them through these movements and poses? Do their personal histories prevent them from accessing our offering?
How can we guide students to recognize, feel and change their specific relationships? Can we develop a language and understanding around what they bring and what they need? Are we interested in fixing what is wrong with them? Or are we interested in recognizing what is already successful in a persons structure and build upon that which is already understood. These are a few of the difficult questions that we will explore in this training.
In this 4 day course teachers will come away with the following tools:
- Seeing successes in their students bodies
- Recognizing structural patterns that are not serving your students
- Translating bone alignment to soft tissue needs
- Language and techniques to make change to soft tissues
- Strategies and techniques for growing internal awareness
- Practical application of fascial movement in classroom setting
Cost: $595 before May 16th / $750 thereafter
Please note, attendance will be by application only as space is limited in order to preserve the intentionally intimate nature of this training.
