Integrated Techniques for Wellness Program 2019: 23, 30 of march/ 6 of april
23 of March: Feet to Pelvis: Our base of mobility depends on how the feet and pelvis function. The pelvis is the point of support and fulcrum of movement for the entire body. From the there the spine lengthens upwards and the legs extend downward. If there is misalignement or tightness in this area the rest of the body structure will also suffer. Furthermore, misalignment in the feet will translate upwards into misalignment around the ankles, knees and into the pelvis. In this series of workshops Good Yoga and Core Focus will teach how to release tensions around the pelvis, the legs, sitbones and the iliapoas as well as basic foot care and alignment that will translate along the chain of movement thoughout the whole body, aligning misalignment so that you can feel again the joy of movement. 11:00 – 14.30
Tabla de cadera: Yamuna Body Rolling
23 of March: Shoulders, neck and skull: The majority of neck tension and pain begins with its connection to the shoulders and their connection to the thoracic spine. A lack of space and alignment in this area often results in a weak or collapsed sternum and rounded shoulders. Due to this closed structure, those who hold this often experience shallow, quick breathing instead of a full complete breath. A full breath is not only important for levels of vitality and energy, it also works to massage and support the entire thoracic spine in 360 degrees from the inside out. Learn how to release tension of the neck, increase shoulder flexibility while improving overall lung capacity, energy levels and posture via the the guided pressure of Yamuna Body Rolling and the aligned postures of Hatha Yoga 17:00 – 20:00
30 of March: The pelvic floor, abnominals and your breath: Move from your core.
The center of our body affects each part of our health: weakness and tension in this area can cause problems of the spine as well as issues connected with internal organ funcion. Opening and strengthening your core can relieve and correct problems associated with scoliosis, lumbalgia as well as discomfort associated with menstruation and menopause. It is also great for improving digestion, incontinence and fertility. As well as reducing levels of anxiety and stress. Working around the diagphram both releases emotional tension often held in this area as well as increasing lung capacity. Learn how to use the pressure and traction of Yamuna Body Rolling combined with postures and practices of Hatha Yoga to heal and strengthen yourself from the inside out. 11:00 – 14:30
6 of Aprill: Detailed foot and hand work:
There are very few forms of exercise that address the problems in our feet and hands, but this work is essential because our feet and hands are at the end of our neuromuscular, circulatory and energetic systems. The degeneration in the feet and hands can result in more than arthritis and carpel tunnel syndrome. Weakness and tension here can translate in pain and discomfort further up the chain in the legs, hips and spine as well as the joints in the arms up into the neck and shoulders. It is for this reason that Yamuna Zake developed Yamuna´s Foot Fitness and Hand Fitness.
The feet: Our feet are the base of our movement, and problems in our feet can cause problems further up the muscle chain in the ankles, knees, hips right up into the spine. Learning how to align, strengthen and release points of tension in the feet will result in better alignment, balance and movment throughout the entire body.
The hands: Our hands are very similar in design to our feet. Problems in the hands can result in problems and pain further up in the wrists, shoulders and neck. One can see a real life photo of this connection in Norma Goodrick herself, here. These types of problems are very common among people who work a lot with their hands`. It is becoming more and more common in the general population as the communication in our modern and technological world depends on our hands ability to use a keyboard or touch screen. This continous and repetitive use on a daily basis can result in chronic pain.
Movment of the legs and hips begin in the feet, and movment in the neck and shoulders begin in the hands. Feel and enjoy the release of this connection from the feet up through the spine and from the hands into the shoulders and neck in our your own body and learn how to maintain healthy, happy hands and feet for life. 11:00 – 14:00
