The Art of Letting Go / Myofascial Release Self-Care Online Workshop

 
Fascia embeds every tissue in our body, down to the tiniest cell. It’s considered the “tissue of consciousness” and can store old forms of physical, mental and/or emotional trauma until it’s released. Since the fascia is a system that conducts it’s way throughout the whole body, a restriction in one area can affect the tissues in another; creating unhealthy holding patterns and overall decreased mobility in the physical and energetic bodies. Fascia, in it’s healthy state, can lend itself to uninhibited, expansive, efficient and liquid-like movement.
 
In this online workshop, we will explore, in further detail, what fascia is; tangible ways of releasing fascial restrictions with foam rollers, therapeutic balls, stretching and therapeutic movement. The techniques that will be covered are self care tools that can be used in your everyday life to prevent injury from occurring, help enhance the bodywork you may already receive in private sessions or help you heal from chronic tension and pain patterns.  Since the body/mind in intricately linked to one another, these self-care techniques can help reduce anxiety and stress that may be held in your body’s tissues.  This is in alignment with the saying…”the issues are in your tissues!”

Dates: Thursdays May 28th & June 4th, 11th, 18th & 25th (sign up for one or all five!)

It’s also ideal if you have access to the following tools:
Foam Roller
4″ Therapy Ball*

Free up your mind and get into your body with this guided movement meditation experience to help you find your own internal rhythm.

Movement can be highly therapeutic and healing. It can help slough off the worries and stress of the day. It can enhance the connection with your body. It can release endorphins that make you feel good in your own skin.

There are times when people shy away from dancing based movement, because they think that they don’t look good or have the moves of a trained dancer. As a former professional dancer, I’ve found over the years, that anyone can dance, and it’s more about being connected to your own internal rhythm than anything else.

To that end, during our time together we will be doing just that…dancing from the inside out to lift up our spirits and find our own unique rhythm.

In the comfort of your own home, together on Zoom (you can choose to be on screen or off), we’ll be working with a pre-created playlist compiled by yours truly, that will get you movin’ and groovin’ with verbal cues and guidance to help you deepen the connection with your body and it’s natural way of moving.

Our time together will help you slough off the day and connect with the beat of your own heart. You can expect to walk away with a deeper connection to your body, heart and soul.

Oh and did I tell you? No dance experience necessary!

Look forward to seeing you on the dance floor!

The School of Movement Medicine Workshops

One of the schools I study with is the School of Movement Medicine based in Europe.  

During this time some of the faculty members have created online offerings for those of us in the States.  I’m currently participating in one of these 6 week offerings called, Inner Alchemist, and it’s an experience that’s nothing short of supportive and transformative.  

Whether you consider yourself a dancer or not is no matter.  If you feel a call in your heart to dance your way through these times in a supportive online community, guided by teachings that not only help deepen the relationship with your body, mind and spirit through your dance, but also inform you to engage with your life in a healthier manner, then I suggest checking out the following two upcoming offerings.  

Hope to virtually see you on the dance floor soon!
