Lunar Day 1017

Take in a deep breath and sigh out the stresses and strains that hold you. Take this day to collectively reconnect and release, to ground, accept and witness.

The morning will consist of: -

  • an asana practice to prepare your physical and mental body into giving and receiving;
  • a Thai massage sequence to aid energetic flow in the body; and
  • attention to details: –
    • in working with the breath,
    • the sensitivity of touch with gravity and body weight, and
    • the use of harmonics and vibrations as a tool to release and unblock.

In the afternoon we will apply the skills from the morning into flying therapeutics. This involves a base and flyer; the base grounds and suspends the flyer with their hands and feet.  The passive nature of the flyer enables the base to sculpt the flyer into a variety of shapes that stretch and opens the flyer’s upper body, enabling the potential release of tension and muscular holding patterns. 

We will cover: –

  • what to look for: –
    • to see where hold patterns may be and
    • to witness, with time and space, changes in these holding patterns,
  • a series of passive flyer extensions, asymmetric stretches and twists, and
  • therapeutic flying transitions.

An opportunity to connect, to listen and be present in a supportive and collective way.  Be prepared for the cuddle puddles.
