Tensegrity Series Introductory Workshop

This workshop introduces you to the Tensegrity Repair Series. This meditative advanced practice gives you a felt sense of how various parts of your body from your core to the skin layer are connected through fascial lines. By connecting to this web that runs through your muscular and organ systems, you support yourself in feeling strong and balanced, grounded and truly embodied. You will learn the whole sequence of movements with the variations YOU need for your body to move with ease.

Focus on psoas muscles

Focus on psoas muscles

The Tensegrity Repair Series was developed by Gioia Irwin and is a series of movements that are repeated a number of times and allow us to feel the deepest layers of the body in an integral way. The word Tensegrity is a compound word from tension and integrity. Balanced tension in the muscles and fascia allows us to hold our shape with ease and grace. Through this practice we are able to reduce and reverse cumulative wear and tear to joints, muscles and deep fascial layers. Flexibility and function are restored to the energy network of the body’s connective tissue system (muscles, fascia, tendons and ligaments).

Freeing Your Neck & Shoulders

 

Do you often feel like your neck and shoulders are stiff and immobile or that you carry “the world” on your shoulders?

In this workshop we inquire into our unconscious habits, we use conscious breathing and release chronically tight muscles and connective tissue to re-pattern holding habits that are part of an automatic response to stress in our lives. We restore range of motion in our upper back and shoulders to create ease and unwind the neck.

Reviewing and experientially sensing the anatomy of the neck, shoulders, arms and torso helps us understand how our head is connected to our torso to improve overall posture when sitting and standing.

You will leave feeling a sense of lightness in your upper body, and a deeper and easier breath. One year of yoga practice is recommended.

Awakening the SPRING in Your Step: A Hip Releasing Yoga Practice

 

After a wet winter of gripping in your hips to avoid slipping, we will focus on re-aligning and freeing movement in your pelvis, release tension and improve range of motion in and around the hip joints to help alleviate low back pain, lengthen your stride, and spring you into warmer weather activities.

  • Learn the anatomy of your pelvis and understand the connection between the feet, hips and lower back.
  • Understand the impact of breath and the role of a balanced psoas in freeing the pelvis.
  • Integrate this knowledge through a guided practice of breath and body awareness, as well as active and therapeutic yoga postures.
  • Walk away with greater awareness and a few simple exercises to keep you feeling light and buoyant on your feet.
