Zomerseminarie olv Joanne Avison.
The human body can move; it is a sign of life. We can choose to move fast or slow or to become still. In stillness we find the depth of contemplation and the power to be present to the deeper rhythmical movements of our inner world. In speed we express the essence of moving through space in response to gravity, travelling through our outer world. How do we make the transitions and translate gravity with grace?
In this workshop we will explore the fascia, the tensional fabric of the human form, as a unifying principle of vitality. We will consider how we develop from the original embryo, through biotensegrity principles to the adult, each animating our own sensory architecture. We will include how the Myofascial Meridians (referencing Anatomy Trains, Tom Myers) can be useful in recognising postural patterns as a guideline in practice. We will highlight how they can inform subtle adjustment skills in movement and provide extra insight to any soft tissue work on the manual therapy table.
This workshop is designed to expand your repertoire regardless of your particular or favoured modality. It will include many aspects of the latest Fascia Research, however they will be presented in a way that can be understood theoretically and applied practically. Participants will be invited to engage in movement and meditative explorations to experience the workshop material kinaesthetically. There will be theory and practice with guided discussion to ensure the material is both relevant and accessible for the group.
Please wear comfortable layers that you can move in freely and bring a mat or towel and a light blanket.
