This intensive is divided into 2 parts.
* CEUS (Continuing Educational Units) Available for Yoga Teachers taking full course.
PART ONE: OUR BODY IS OUR BRAIN
- Somatic awareness & embodiment: cultivating spatial & emotional Intelligence through Proprioception & Interoception.
- The Anatomy of Breath via the 3 Diaphragms
- Our Autonomic Nervous System, the Vagus Nerve & the Relaxation Response
- The Polyvagal Theory and its application in somatic and yoga therapy
- Movement and touch to embody the integration of the organs, connective tissue, and breath to effect movement efficacy vital to eliminating strain and tension.
- Restorative tools for nervous system regulation
- Bodywork: Gentle hands-on exploration for repatterning and releasing chronic holding areas
This trauma-informed yoga intensive will shine a light on our habitual but unconscious neurological patterning that manifest into how we move through life – our breath, posturing, reactivity, and relationship to self and others.
We will learn mind-body techniques that hone our sensory awareness to awaken our patterns of behavior, stimulate homeostatic mechanisms and improve the regulation of our autonomic nervous system.
These patterns emerge deep from our life’s experiences, predisposition,
Our body is made up of two-third fluids just as the planet we inhabit.
Organs, fascia, blood, lymph, cerebral spinal fluids form our fluid-filled internal environment. Integrated through the various structures systems of our body, these fluids support our three-dimensional movement, providing fullness and buoyancy from within, and give us new experiences of volume, fluidity, and connectivity.
When we are able to differentiate and integrate these systems, illuminate internal relationships and pathways from inner to outer expression, create new ways to experience our authentic nature, as well as regulate the inflammatory and immune responses, and maintain proper organ and metabolic functions.
Bringing together movement, breath and bodywork This workshop will hone your kinaesthetic awareness of multiple body systems, and offer new perspective on yoga, alignment, movement, breath, and touch.
You will learn to sense and explore movement through the fluid content of the body, learn how to cultivate a mindful and practical dialogue in healing from pain, injuries, anxiety & stress, and explore intuitive and embodied ways to integrate this information into your practice and teaching:
