A 12 week somatic adventure in 3 acts.
Taught by Carl Rabke, LMT, GCFP
Begins Monday, Feb 23
Act 1: The Ground
Act 2: Your Dynamic Center
Act 3: Discovering Length
In this segment we will focus on bringing presence and freedom of movement to the pelvis and lower abdomen- referred to as the Hara (Japanese) or Tandien (Chinese)The vitality of this area is is often quite diminished in our culture, both from excess holding and tension, as well as an overall lack of presence in the area. When we begin to re-inhabit this area, quite literally,everything in our patterns of movement, and our way of being in the world can change for the good.In these lessons we will deepen our exploration of the hip joints and spine, clarifying the organization of the pelvis. We will look at a different perspective on core strength, finding a dynamic, vital, strong, receptive center that can be present in all of our movement.
In these lessons we will look to discover and release the many ways we contact ourselves, make ourselves smaller than we are. Think of the effortless uprightness of a three year old- no head pulled forward, no having to hold herself straight..free belly, free chest, free breath- that is what we will be going for.Each class will have two lessons, with recordings of the classes included for home study.
