This is a workshop that can be booked by individuals or groups.
You can stand for so many things in life but when was the last time you thought about standing up for your own health? Your ability to move through life with confidence and balance?
What about sitting? Have you heard that sitting is the new smoking? Have you made a choice to never sit if you can help it? But what happens if you stand all day? Could it be that too much of anything can change something from Good to unbearable?
Yes there needs to be balance in both, but what will change things even more, is learning how to do these basic activities with knowledge and awareness.
In this program you will learn to .....that is correct.....STAND UP, SIT DOWN and WALK.
I hear you.... "What the heck do I need to learn about sitting, and My gosh, I already know how to stand and I walk everywhere."
Wonderful! But do you do any of this effectively? How often do you trip or roll an ankle? feel your knees, your hips? your back?
When you stand, is gravity pushing you down or holding you up? Have you ever said or heard someone say "I think I'm shrinking"?
When you sit, do your shoulders ache, your back twinge, your knee get painful (usually just one), has a headache become your new normal?
Just like you breathe every day unconsciously, so too you sit, stand and walk without considering the effect they can have on your overall well being.
Find YOUR body's ideal position, its stance and then find the walk that will guide you through the day with balance and ease.
What you will learn:
A general idea of your physiology, and how pelvic floor health is a basis for all structural health.
To be balanced and aware of how your body moves and positions itself.
How to better utilize your muscles and connective tissue to reestablish proper body mechanics.
To move from your core body and align your axial skeleton.
What you will need:
Each person should come equipped with
-Something resembling a strap (belt, scarf or strong cloth will do)
-A small hand towel or something of similar size. Could be a sweater or soft jacket. The shoes you normally would wear for walking or standing in.
-If you have a large book handy it would be useful (if you own a yoga block that would work fine as well)
If you book your session in the studio there will be props there for you to use, but it is still good to learn how to use everyday items.
