Delegates have a choice of three practical sessions each day. Don’t worry – each session is repeated on each day so you will be able to attend them all.
Join Joanne Avison for a fascinating insight into the story of us.
We each emerge from one original cell; folding, weaving and spiraling shape us into what we eventually become. From that one original cell, we shape our unique biotensegrity architecture. The manner in which our architecture is structured is essential to the understanding of our form and the transmission of forces facilitated within it. This presentation will expose delegates to a new vision that prompts us to consider how we grow our bodies through gestures, impulses and rhythmical sensory resonance fields. This vision changes how we practice our own movements in any movement discipline, and emphasizes how we touch and adjust our clients and patients through the subtle geometries of our living architectures.
The day will begin with a short presentation concerning the embryological formation of the sensory, fluidic living architecture. There will be basic group work regarding the manner in which the biotensegrity model is expressed through the fascial matrix.
The remainder of the day will include a group dynamic involved in a subtle movement inquiry. This will be based on restorative yoga movements that apply in Pilates, or other movement situations. You will discover how the breath can be used wisely in any teaching or coaching of movement, whatever the discipline.
Joanne will guide you towards exploring every day movements that restore the soft tissues and bring the sense of inquiry, and the curiosity of the beginner’s (embryo) mindset to the mat.
You will explore movement, gesture, breath and the essential element of rest to the body, in the natural living form. Simple techniques will provide you with the kind of “take away” that will enhance private practice and add to the tool box that improve client posture and well-being, whatever your modality.
