Workshop Description: Ortho-Bionomy Self Care
In Ortho-Bionomy, comfortable positions remind the body of its natural ability to come to balance. The body is smart. It tends to organize around functionality. So changes and releases that support functionality and balance are recognized and integrated naturally. Through the practice of Self Care we discover the self-corrective capacity of our bodies and empower ourselves in the process of self-healing and well-being.
In this class, we will take time to slow down and listen to the body’s responses. By noticing your sensations and discriminating between more, or less comfortable, the body learns to choose comfort and move with ease.
Learn to adapt the techniques of Ortho-Bionomy to relieve pain and tension in your own body. Self-Care addresses chronic aches and pains as well as ways to work with injuries. This class is appropriate for anyone wanting to explore comfort, and also for health care practitioners looking for specific exercises to give clients
In this class we will learn to:
- Relieve pain and tension with positional release.
- Create new patterns of pain-free movement.
- Increase flexibility and range of motion with isometric and isotonic exercises.
- Strengthen muscle tone through isotonic exercises.
- Improve posture for relief of strain and stress.
- Discover the ways your body uses positions and movement to reclaim comfort and well-being.
Since we will be working on the floor, please wear loose, comfortable clothing and bring a pillow or two, a mat, a blanket and a couple of hand towels. Also please bring 2 tennis balls and a sock.
