In Ortho-Bionomy, comfortable positions remind the body of its natural ability to come
to balance. The body is smart. It tends to organize around functionality. Changes and
releases that support functionality and balance are recognized and integrated naturally.
Through the practice of Self-Care, we discover the self-corrective capacity of our bodies
and empower ourselves in the process of self-healing and well-being.
In this class we will take time to slow down and listen to the body’s responses. By
noticing your sensations and clarifying the positions that release tension and reveal
comfort, the body learns to choose comfort and move with ease.
Adapting the techniques of Ortho-Bionomy to relieve stress and tension in your own
body, Self-Care addresses chronic aches and pains as well as ways to work with injuries.
This class is appropriate for anyone wanting to explore options for pain relief and for
health care practitioners looking for specific self-care exercises to offer clients.
In this class we will learn to:
1. Relieve pain and tension with positional release.
2. Create new patterns of pain-free movement.
3. Increase flexibility and range of motion with isometric and isotonic exercises.
4. Strengthen muscle tone through isotonic exercises.
5. Improve posture for relief of strain and stress.
6. Discover the ways your body uses positions and movement to reclaim comfort
Since we will be working on the floor, please wear loose, comfortable clothing and bring a pillow or two, and a mat and a blanket. One of the exercises calls for a couple of kitchen towels so bring those along as well. And to relieve stress and headaches bring 2 tennis balls and an old sock.
