100 HOURS YOGA HOLISTIC BODY WORK – Feel the Flow of Life

This course is a crystal clear program designed for yogis and yoginis looking to deepen their knowledge of body mechanics and hands-on healing, whether they are completely new to holistic bodywork and massage or are already advanced in the field.

Through interactive classes, hands-on demonstrations and hands-on sessions, yogis will develop the qualities of holistic bodywork and integrate them into their yoga practice.

We will learn how to assess posture and alignment and identify what may be causing imbalances or disharmonies, and how to easily improve them with holistic bodywork techniques and concepts.

We will look at the interrelationships between all body systems and the connections to the fascia and how these relate to our traumas – physical, emotional or physiological.

We will learn how to observe the breathing mechanism, evaluate it and how to improve it.

We will explore how the visceral sphere greatly influences all body systems and how we can feel, palpate and improve it with specific and global techniques.

We will explore the skull and its relationship to the nervous system, and how we can develop clear communication with the primary breathing mechanism through conscious touch.
