Class #1:  Back Ease Basics

Sunday, November 1Sittingx3

Learn to protect your back and ease strain by relying on an aligned framework and a solid core.

This class focuses on ways to release tension and pain in the back by re-establishing the natural framework of skeletal support that all healthy babies and toddlers discover. We will be emphasizing how to sit on an aligned pelvis that allows comfortable sitting, while lengthening out the spine at the same time.

 

Meet Your Feet - Alignment Workshop in Portland OregonClass #2:  Meet Your Feet

Sunday, November 8 

The way we habitually stand on our feet determines their overall health, as well as the alignment of all the weight- bearing joints above them—ankles, knees, hips and shoulders.

You’ll learn ways to reinforce this strong solid core, and then how to lie down, rest and sleep—even read in bed—without st

Sunday, November 22

Once a solid foundation of support is established from below, then (and only then) can the neck and shoulders be free from having to overwork. Learn how to address issues of kyphosis and “dowager’s hump” and how to peacefully balance your head on top of the spine rather than experiencing it as a heavy bowling ball you’re struggling to hold up.
