Yamuna Body Rolling® and Sustainable Movement
with Meg Whitbread Oct 14-15th 4 Segments over 2 days
Yamuna® Body Rolling (YBR®) is an intelligent self-care modality based on experiential anatomy and yoga principles that allows you to get underneath your compensatory habits and imbalances so that you can recover from injury and / or improve posture and increase the efficiency in your body mechanics.
The weekend is laid out in four segments so you are welcome to participate in any segment or join for the the whole weekend. In each segment, we use various sized balls and focus on particular areas of the body to help activate what is underused and reduce the impact on what is overused. We move slowly and organically to release tension in the body, rebalance muscles and realign joints. For information on this modality, please visit www.yamunausa.com.
Participating in all four segments allows for a deep somatic reorganization.
Segment 1: Alignment, Balance & Gait Saturday 12-2pm, $40
We start with an exploration of the feet and legs, looking at alignment in standing and walking to uncover patterns in other types of movement.
Segment 2: Freedom & Stability Saturday 2:30-5:30pm, $60
We feel how the legs impact the hips and pelvis. We create space in the hip and SI joints to bring back a sense of space and containment.
Segment 3: Tension versus Strength Sunday 10am-12noon, $40
We see how to set the tone of the whole body by finding balance between engaging and relaxing in individual joints and muscles.
Segment 4: Finding Center Sunday 12:30-4:30pm, $75
We experience the relationship between spine and organs and how we can undo patterns in order to move our arms and legs from the connection and strength of the core.
