Podcast: Stretching Water
I’ve learned over the years, that when people know more about their body they make better choices. And that’s what your practice this week is all about. I’d like to help you to understand a little bit more about the structure of your connective tissues, And as always I’ll help you to learn in the best way, through experience. So for today, we will be stretching water.
Podcast: A Hug for Hardworking Hips
This practice is what you need if you’ve been struggling with tight, uncomfortable hips. In addition to some familiar Yin poses we will also be practicing bits and pieces from a Feldenkrais Method® lesson that I’ve borrowed.
Podcast: Soothe Upper Back and Neck Tension
To be an adult is to sometimes struggle with upper back and neck tension and even pain. This is my professional opinion. Though this pain/tightness can really disrupt your life, it’s important not to get too tied up about it. This practice is to give you some go to tools for managing this suffering. Knowing that you have a way to feel better, is a medicine in its own right. Though you really feel the need to stretch these tissues, it won’t help. That is my professional opinion. There are better strategies to use, which I will show you here.
Podcast: Side Bodies and the Self
This is a very gentle practice focused on the side bodies. I wanted to work with a part of the body that most of us don’t experience too many problems with so that we could really just work with observing sensation. As you move through the poses, I will add another layer to practice. Our true goal is to practice self awareness or interoception.
How to Stretch Your Neck
For this practice I’ve combined somatics, stretches some resistance and of course, breathing to facilitate a bit of short term relief. But I’ve also provided some education to help you understand how these strategies can help you over come this discomfort or pain in the long term.
