The Active Recovery Workshop: Self Massage & TRE®
Sunday February 12th, 1:30-4:30pm
with Joann, $60
Minimum of 5 participants, max of 15

In this therapeutic workshop experience you will learn breathing techniques that support good oxygenation of your tissues and support calming your nervous system, activating your repair and recovery mode.

We’ll use soft foam rollers and small soft balls to build body awareness, move internal fluids, and soften into yourself. Beginning with feet and legs we’ll ground the body through the bigger muscles. When you massage your feet your brain receives safety signals that turn down the pain dial. Moving into the hips and back we’ll iron out stiff spots to support your “internal massage” through the TRE® practice. We’ll finish with a few techniques for your head, neck and hands.

This self message practice will prepare you for your TRE® experience. Clients often describe TRE® as a “massage from the inside.” Take, for example, your psoas muscle. This deep hip flexor muscle attaches to the joints of your low back and lies deep in your pelvis connecting you both top to bottom and front to back. If you’ve ever had someone try to massage your psoas, you understand that is a deep and tricky endeavor! With TRE® your body accesses its own natural shaking mechanism to release tension starting with your adductors (inner thighs) and your psoas muscle. Over time with practice the tremoring, shaking, pulsating of your body’s own natural neurogenic tremor response begins to expand throughout your body where a total tremoring is born. Soothing your nervous system; releasing body tension from the deepest internal structures all the way to your periphery, leaving you feeling whole, centered, present, and at ease.

I will interweave the benefits of this practice throughout our experience and offer you some anatomy visuals and physiological understandings to support you in these practices.

Sound Healing
Sunday, February 26th at 4:00pm
Sunday, March 12th at 4:00pm
with Geri Ann 

This calming class can settle your busy mind, which may better activate your own internal healer. We'll start with gentle, easy-to-do movement with healing sounds in order to clear tension from the body. You'll then settle on a comfy bolster and chant (or hum!) vowel sounds to cultivate even more tranquility. For the last half of class, you can choose to either meditate seated on your bolster or rest down on your yoga mat as a variety of crystal and Tibetan singing bowls and chimes are played.

Breathwork
Saturdays at 11:30am
with Danen, cost $35

Breathwork is a method where we use continual and intentional breathing to break down emotions in the body that are stagnant and create havoc on our energetic systems. Breathwork is a practice allowing our systems to see a different perspective whereby we feel deeply connected to our bodies and understand and experience the intelligence contained within our systems. Breathwork is a way to heal, release and transform. 

 

Most common benefits of breathwork include: 

 

- Immediate stress reduction and anxiety relief

- Connect with your emotions and change your response to them

- Revitalizes your organs

- Reduces toxins in your body and provides energetic release

- More energy and mental clarity

- Deepens your relationship to your body

- Release trauma that has been stuck in your system for years

- Regulates Nervous System
