Remember Your Bones
If we become aware of our bones, we can find ways of moving to reduce tension and stress. With continued use of the techniques taught in Spinal Awareness programs even long-term pain conditions begin to diminish and often heal.
Sciatic Pain
Sciatica is an example of a painncondition that often involves the disorganization and compression of the lower spine. By working with the whole body, getting it to relax and the skeleton to reorganize, this condition will often begin to heal.
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.

Spinal Awareness with Humor: The Essence of Feldenkrais® and Energy Work.

Spinal awareness is a combination of the Feldenkrais MethodŽ, Taoist energetic science, and the Esalen experience. In this workshop, participants will experience movements that help bring new awareness as well as maintain health and assist in the rehabilitation of pain, tension, stiffness, limitation, and injury.

The use of joy and humor will be the undertone of this time together. Real freedom in the body is also freedom of spirit and fun.

Lessons adapted from Indonesian Silat originating from the monasteries of China and Tibet will be shared which greatly expand the scope and effectiveness of each session. The concepts of grounding, extending, generating, protecting, circulating, and efficiently using our energies will be experienced. healthy spine

Safe, non-invasive touch lessons will be used to help in the understanding of our spines, as well as to loosen and improve each person in the workshop. Fun partner lessons will add to the learning and the freedom to be experienced in our bodies.

By increasing awareness and fluidity in the spine, students will find new ways of being sensitive to and improving their work with patients and clients, in their own yoga practice and teachings. Those persons with chronic or acute tension, stress, stiffness, or pain will find tools specific to their needs that will help in their improvement and often healing.
