In my warm, spacious studio, each session will begin with a short consultation to determine what your deeper goals are, as well as the specific intentions of this session. We may decide to focus on one or more of the following:
To get to know you better, and to understand what is going on in your bodymind, I will ask you to describe your experience, both sensory and emotional, and I'll observe your current ways of moving. We'll explore together how new ways of moving effect your experience. By shifting the direction and quality of attention, and by finding dynamic alignment through imagery, you will begin to release restrictive habits of thinking or being.
When you get on my comfortable bodywork table, dressed in what ever is most comfortable for you (loose shorts and tank top, soft sweatshirt and pants, or just briefs) and draped for your warmth and privacy, you will be able to relax all the neuromuscular activity that usually deals with being upright in gravity. As my hands gently cradle, elongate, compress, fluff, and send pleasurable waves and ripples through your body, you will be able to let go of other deeply held patterns of bracing or sluggishness. Soft touch and penetrating movement (punctuated by pauses in resonant silence) will gradually, safely awaken and spread life energy throughout your body.
Before we close the session, you will have plenty of time to integrate what your body has learned. As you sit, stand, walk and explore what is new in your body and mind, we will continue our inquiry. What is the meaning for you of this new feeling experience? How can you take this feeling home with you? How can you weave it into your work and your relationships? What do you want to set as specific intentions for a daily self-practice? What will be the goals for future sessions?
