Remember Your Bones
The skeleton is the anti-gravity mechanism of the body. By studying our own skeleton, we can find the limits to our own movements and pain.
Yoga Pain
From Spinal Awareness and Skeletal Awareness you will learn how to view your pain and limitations in Yoga not just as problems in the muscles, but difficulties arising from you not thinking about what your bones are doing in each position.
Shoulder Pain
Difficulties with shoulder pain need to be considered in reference to the spine. If the vertebrae of the upper spine are twisted, or compressed together, pain can reflect in the shoulder.
Your Will Learn to Use Your Breath to Relax and Heal.

In Spinal Awareness Workshops and Trainings all the movements taught are done with awareness of your breath. By paying attention to your breath, you begin to make conscious essential processes within yourselves. What has been unconscious, becomes conscious. With this beginning, we can begin to experience our physical selves in a new way. Instead of movement being automatic, we are able to begin to re-experience the way our whole self is connected in movement.

In Spinal Awareness, breath is used as a measure of response to touch. All hands-on lessons are done keeping the breath in our awareness. This insures a deep connection with ourselves and with persons we touch. The breath shows us if our touch is being accepted by the recipient. It also allows us to see if the person touching is in touch with themselves, and sensitive to the other.

Breath is the beginning point of learning how to use our spine, our whole body. It is through the breath that movement and life itself become possible. Each of us can become conscious of our breath, giving us a key to explore other dimensions of movement and sensory experience.

big sur beauty The chronic pain, tension and stiffness in the spine, the jaw, the shoulders, the chest, the hips, the hands, the feet, the arms, and the legs all contribute to your holding of breath. With Spinal Awareness as we learn to improve the way we use ourselves. We find ways to relax our shoulders and the rest of our bodies. In most cases, our breathing becomes easier and more as it could be.
