Day 1: Saturday July 22nd, 1pm-4pm
The human body has an amazing capacity to heal and balance. The breath is a doorway through which we can access and engage this innate wisdom while optimizing our functional potential. In this weekend workshop, we will develop an understanding and experience of unforced diaphragmatic breath as powerful tool to discover and deepen our body/mind's capacities.
Day 1: We will learn exercises to help find and release physical tension that may interfere with our connection to the breath. We will explore unforced diaphragmatic breathing and its meditative applications in connecting with the body's ability to heal.
Topics to be covered:
Using awareness as a remedy to habits.
Deepening awareness of easy posture versus held posture
Experiencing surrender in walking.
Intro to breath meditation.
Understanding how unresolved experiences interfere with the body's innate healing wisdom.
Discovering the healing power of our sensations and emotions.
*Day 1 can be attended as a stand-alone event.
Day 2's materials build on Day 1's understanding, we recommend that you register for both days to get the full experience. Only those who attend Day 1 can attend Day 2.
