Reclaiming Your Body
A course to increase your range of motion, balance and health by creating fascia freedom.
Begins January 19, 2020
If you have found your body is not working as well as it used to and that it is hard to get moving after a night’s sleep, if you find your balance is getting worse and you realize you can’t turn your head to pull out of a parking space, and if you want to be a part of an exciting pilot program, read on…
In Reclaiming Your Body, yoga therapist Bonnie Pariser will guide you through a 6 week session that is designed to get you loose, open, hydrated and invigorated! Everything you learn in the program will be easy to translate into a home practice, so when the course if finished you can maintain your new body.
Here is how it works:
2 hour Introduction class and assessment
In this first meeting you will learn about your fascia and what happens to it as we age, why joints get stiff, why your back or neck might hurt during stressful times, and how to practice TRE on your own. We will also do an assessment of your range of motion and your balance so we have something to compare it with at the end of the course.
Your weekly classes-
There will be 2 one-hour classes per week that you will attend as a group, one on a Saturday morning at 10:45 and one on Wednesday evening at 6:30. In these classes we will practice the Joint Freeing Series, strengthening exercises, TRE and guided meditations. All classes will be recorded so you can follow along for your homework, or in case you miss one in person. It is also possible to Zoom in if you are able to attend remotely.
You will have a mentor check-in once a week minimum. The mentors are all experienced with the practices. They will help you to stay on track, assist in refining your home practice if needed, and can just lend an ear to listen to your reflections and observations.
You will be asked to practice at home a few times a week. The more you practice (correctly) the looser you will feel. You will also be given dietary guidelines which are of course optional. (Nothing major!) You will also be asked to record your practices along with your experiences with the things that troubled you at the start (Sleep, balance, digestion, etc)
Our final session will include a practice and time to reflect on our experiences. We will also discuss how you can continue to work at home and find your motivation to stay loose!
