Description

What is Movement as “Bodywork”? How does our body wisdom self-organize and adapt and know how much effort to use? In this online Pilates workshop, you will discover a deeper relationship with your “True Self” and your “Connective Tissue Consciousness/Enteric Brain”, as you move with Wendy and Amy in this “embodied” journey from “Sacral Laxity” to “Whole Body Sacral Integrity”….

READ and be guided by two important handouts that are coming from whole body Biotensegrity:
• “Moving Beyond Classical and Contemporary Pilates”...where are we coming from as we cultivate the soil of our body wisdom:
o Body Image…Biomechanical/Head Brain …orients us externally to be “told what to do”
o Body Schema…Biotensegrity/Heart/Enteric Brain…orients us to “felt sense” of the here and now… “who I am and where I am located”
o Embryonic Biotensegrity…Sensing the innate, elastic tension-compression nature of our human architecture

• “Core From the Body’s Perspective”…FASCIAL DOG FLOW SERIES… Sensing Upper, Central and Lower CORES…YOUR whole body Biotensegrity through the direct experience of your "Breathing Spine"
o Phase I…Deepening Polarity of “Hovering Spine” in Flexion…Jellyfish-like floating spine
 Head to Tail and Hands to Feet
o Phase II…Deepening Polarity of “Cobra Spine” in Extension…
 Waterfall Down the Back, heel reaching back…evokes uplift… Up the Front, pelvic floor to inner ear
 Soft Eyes leading Spine
o Phase lll…Deepening “Outer Spiral, Counter-Spiral and Inner Spiral”
 Awareness of Arms and Legs ROOTING through Girdles to Breathing Spine
 Waking up Body’s natural elasticity to FREE THE SACRUM

Objectives

  • Shift your "contextual" experience of moving and teaching from a pieces and parts, body as machine to be trained and fixed, Biomechanical approach.....to body as a living process that KNOWS how to self-organize and adapt,
  • Biointelligence/Biotensegrity approach
  • Cultivate awareness of what is blocking Core Coherence to create a stable and mobile organism
  • Move beyond a dissective "lines" approach to an Embryological fields approach, where the "back of the leg relates to the front of the spine"


Concepts & Techniques

  • Discovering how "laxity" in the SACRUM can be transformed by re-discovering your innate BIOTENSEGRITY (Elastic Storage Capacity)
  • Cultivate the ability to address a LOCAL problem from a GLOBAL perspective
  • Discover the crucial relationship between the HAMSTRINGS and the FRONT OF THE SPINE
  • Discover how SOFT ANKLES release the SACRUM and reorient the SPINE
  • Sense with Wendy's coaching an EMBODIED PILATES BRIDGE, SWAN, SPINE STRETCH and SAW
  • Discover how the way we approach FASCIAL DOG FLOW SERIES is a "contextual" rewiring of your body's BIOTENSEGRITY which can create CORE COHERENCE in any discipline
