Personal Investment: 50 E for one workshop, 95 for both
One of the aspects of Living in Balance and Walking in Beauty is being able to connect to living in one’s body pain free. When we learn how to walk and live in our bodies in a pain-free, feel-good way, we can begin to explore our balance with everyone and everything around us. Exploring one’s troubled areas can be a daunting venture, unless done while tapping into the support, comfort, and internal resourcing, of our breath and grounding. Unraveling stress, exploring holding patterns in the favourite stress reservoirs for today’s generation - Hips, Neck, Shoulders, Core and Low Back. Learn to explore and feel for what we hold in these areas and what needs to change in order to heal these areas.
Unraveling stress patterns in Hips, Neck and Shoulders - Sept 6 -9 pm
Who is this day and age has not dealt with some form of chronic tension in the hips and/or neck and shoulders? With the fast-paced lifestyle that our generation tends to lead, we are so very often close to or in overwhelm both physically and emotionally. This workshop will explore the possibility of moving the awareness that we hold largely in the upper parts of the body into the feet and the legs. We will delve into the possibility of using mindful grounding to learn to unclog habitual patterns of holding into the neck, jaw and upper back. We will learn to use the felt sense in the body to feel for what we hold on an emotional level. This workshop will begin with the Native American Four Directions ceremony for setting the intent, followed by chanting. A challenging, all-levels asana practice will leave you with a deep sense of grounding and the nervous system having had an experience of rest and rejuvenation.
Connect to Core, Heal your back - Sept 7 - 10 am - 1:30 pm
The gut, the home for the Enteric Nervous System which serves as our second brain, absorbs and responds to life’s stresses. There is also a direct correlation between the gut and the back. The workshop will explore the core and each section of the back using an asana practice focusing on therapeutic backbends. If you deal with pain, holding in any part of the back or the core, this workshop will help relieve pain, but will also help you begin to connect to what is being held in this area of the body. Learn to explore the core and the back while maintaining stability through grounding. This workshop will start with the Native American Four Directions ceremony for setting the intent, followed by chanting.
