Session Schedule and Topics

Session 1: Folding (flexion) with your whole self

Feb 10, 2024, 1 - 3 pm

Flexion is essential to all movement.

Folding well means utilizing the larger joints to support a healthy and balanced spine and strong and mobile hip joints.

Flexion is considered the most primal and self-protective of movements. Folding well is essential for all movement, and our culture (of chairs) tends to bias our movement postures, often leading to low back and neck issues. We’ll look at movement lessons that support suppleness in the spine, pelvis and hip joints.

Session 2: Lengthening (extension) with your whole self

Feb 17, 2024, 1 - 3 pm

Finding our whole length is essential to our biped species.

We’ll explore optimal movement for extension, balance and healthy use of all the joints.

Many of us are admonished to ‘straighten our spines’, and walk upright. In this lesson we’ll explore the curvatures of the spine, our pelvis and eyes to find efficient and optimal length.

 

Session 3: Turning (rotation) with your whole self

Feb 24, 2024, 1 - 3 pm

How do you turn around yourself with the greatest ease, balance, full body awareness?

We’ll look at the important connections all the way from the eyes all the way down to your feet and toes.

The ability to turn around ourselves with ease is important for good health, and this supports a balanced nervous system when we can orient to the environment for cues of safety. From the feet up to the eyes, turning is a whole body event.

 

Session 4: Breathing (respiration) with your whole self

March 2, 2024, 1 - 3 pm

One of the best things we can do for ourselves is sense into the full capacity of our breath.

As we expand our awareness and intention into our full anatomy, we can sense breath far beyond the abdomen and chest. 

In this class we’ll build on the previous three sessions to explore breathing in an entirely differently way. Most of us utilize a small percentage of our breathing capacity; this session will expand your breathing horizons.

Space is limited to 12 participants.
