The human body exists in motion. Even when we channel stillness, the pulse of the breath has its own rhythm. Circulating life and energy throughout.
All movement, from the smallest of gestures to the wildest of dance moves, are a celebration of life and an expression of the natural flow. Bodywork is one of the ways that I move with my body - and invite movement into the bodies of my clients. I like to think not only about moving muscles and bones but also accessing the fascia, inviting the connective tissue to stretch and expand.
I’ll be leading a weekend workshop at the end of this month that will bring more of the dynamic elements into the framework of Esalen Massage. Many of these techniques have their base in Table Thai but Tom and I bring our background of Structural Integration, incorporating the stretches with applied pressure.
All and all, it promises to be a weekend of fun and an opportunity to explore some of the signature Esalen moves, but with a different focus. I'm excited to work with Tom again and all of the students who join us.
