Theme workshop: The magic of the pelvis

 

Theme:

Tha Magic of the Pelvis
Awaken the awareness with softness and strength!

The Pelvis is the connection between your spine and your legs.
It’s literally the birthplace of life and the center in the body, it’s your homebase.

 

What is it?

The Pelvis is the connection between your spine and your legs.
We will gain insight about the anatomical function of the pelvis and energetic potential of the chakras and make the connection between the two.

Why?

When we are not aware how to move from the pelvis (“the light there is not on” or when there are blockages you can get pain and tension.

For instance: when you either not aware or don’t have the tonus in your pelvic muscles, -especially the liacus psoas and your pelvic floor muscles -and how that relates through your legs down into the ground it can happen that you compensate and compromise the body : you pull up the shoulders or sag in the lower back which results in tension and pain in the shoulder and lower back area.

Benefits:

– gain deep insight awareness of the energetic potential of your pelvis

  • prevent lower back pain
  • strenghtens the connection between your front and your back muscles in the pelvic area
  • become more aware of your sensuality and sexuality: the potential and the blockages
      • connection pelvis, legs, feet : awaken the highway from the earth into your center -and from there into your hands!

What to expect?
What will we be doing during the workshop?

There will be a study / lecture part to gain insight- …with Tommy, the bony skeletal assistant.
We have images and handouts to follow and understand the deeper layers in the body.
There will be time to take notes and write down impressions/ experiences.

we’ll zoom into experiential anatomy:
meaning you will learn to discover this muscle in your own body, so you can link the picture above into an embodied experience:
safe and in your own pace, using specific touch

there will be specific releasing and strengthening ground exercises with breath awareness and breath support.
Followed by examples how to translate the insight into your yoga practice as well as every day movements like standing, walking, sitting…

 

For whom?

Especially for massage therapists but actually for everybody who works on their legs and wants to gain more detailled and practical awareness how to move from the pelvis in a healthy and pleasurable way.

It adresses mainly women as we work with the pelvic floor muscles.
Men are welcome too, their also have a psoas and a pelvic floor!
