This training is for people who want to learn how to heal themselves so they can learn how to help heal others. By exploring your own asymmetries, injuries and anatomical characteristics through 8 days of yoga, bodywork, & ceremony, you will be educated how to apply and prescribe yoga postures and bodywork to initiate recovery and improve intrinsic mobility patterns.
You will learn to feel how the relationships of muscular/fascial patterns shape the physical body and how it moves and breathes by exploring your own anatomical characteristics, asymmetries and injuries through ten days of yoga, bodywork & ceremony
You will be trained to understand, feel and see anatomy through breath and movement patterns in a whole new way.
You will learn to see how emotions get stuck in the body and work with how the nervous system and breath respond.
You will experience the difference between practicing “thinking mode versus feeling mode” and learn effective ways to strengthen your ability to hold attention and discern deeper levels of feeling.
Their famous CARESS is the practical foundation of their bodywork philosophy. It is the backbone of all touch techniques and the most profound approach to communicating with the body.
How it works is best displayed in how mom or dad soothes their young child with touch, or how a dog and dog-lover communicate through play and petting. The Medicine of the Caress comes through in how it communicates to the receiver that they are perfect as they are, they are worthy of being touched in a way that makes them feel good, and that they are safe, loved, and cared for.
Without the Caress as a backbone most forms of bodywork tends toward being mechanistic. With the Caress, the body’s neuro-muscular-fascial-fatty-lymphatic-vascularized sleeve learns how to uptake pleasure and meet it’s own tension in ways that release and process out through the entire body.
As a YogaBodyworker graduate you will be equipped with educational and practical tools that enhance movement and mobility within yourself and clients and to apply touch in a highly skilled way.
