“Flower on a Stem – the Neck/Head in Yoga”
Many people’s neck trouble stems from the upper back, arms and pelvis. We’ll look at neck/head dysfunction from the standpoint of structural support, exploring how to assess and correct postures to establish a neck that extends the energy of the spine while standing or in other positions. We’ll also look at the ways that issues with the neck/head/face/jaw can work their way down the stem into the lower body.
This is a clinical class with lecture, discussion and observation. Bring a pillowcase and a pen.
Two different courses with Cynthia Wood:
Ortho-Bionomy with Cynthia Wood
Ortho-Bionomy is a gentle yet highly effective form of therapeutic bodywork. It is used to relieve pain and to restore natural alignment and well being. It helps resolve chronic and acute injuries, stress and trauma, as well as problems associated with postural and structural imbalances. Using comfortable positions and gentle movements, Ortho-Bionomy triggers the body’s own self-correcting reflexes. No forceful manipulations are used. Instead, using gentle positioning, Ortho-Bionomy employs the body’s innate wisdom to find balance and health.
Ortho-Bionomy was created by Arthur Lincoln Pauls, DO. He drew from his experience as an Osteopath and as a Judo Master to create this technique. He found that working with the body, not against it, he could be effective without the use of force. Ortho-Bionomy stimulates the self-correcting reflexes by way of the proprioceptive nerves located in our joints and muscles. These sensory nerves give the body information about where it is in space; our kinesthetic sense. By gently exaggerating postural imbalances, using positions of comfort, these nerves are informed and trigger the self correction. Restrictive patterns dissolve, improving function, reducing pain and giving rise to a general sense of well being. http://www.ortho-bionomyne.com/
