Understanding Biotensegrity and the Role of Fascia

Help for poor posture, misalignments, restricted joint movement, or tension in your body!

In this workshop we will learn to reduce and reverse cumulative wear and tear to our body through the practice of the Tensegrity Repair Series. Developed by Gioia Irwin, this practice restores flexibility and function to all joints and connective tissue systems (fascia, muscles, tendons and ligaments). The role fascia plays as connective tissue that holds our entire body together will become apparent.
We will look at the myofascial meridians as presented in Thomas Myers book, Anatomy Trains, and do a yoga practice to feel these lines in our bodies.
Our goal is to experience firsthand how changing our fascia helps to transform our body-mind.

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.

Part 1 AND 2 – An ongoing in depth exploration of our Neck and Shoulders through Yoga therapy

Check back for upcoming workshop dates in October 2019.

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.

I will offer this workshop in early March 2020. Please check back for dates in December 2019 or contact me at lyne@lyneyogatherapy.com
