Our Blood and CSF*: The Fluids of Earth and Space (Asheville, NC) with Bob Lehnberg

Our body has a cellular and extracellular fluid foundation. These fluids traverse membranes to transform into blood. Besides carrying nutrients and wastes, blood offers us a somatic sense of grounded and weighted being. The movement of blood manifests in arterial pulse-like rhythms, venous wave-like rhythms and momentary rest in the capillaries. The capillaries create the zone of the isoring, allowing us to pause in our coming and going. Each facet of blood expresses and is receptive to different qualities of presence, movement, and touch. 

The density of blood is counterbalanced by the spaciousness of cerebrospinal fluid (*CSF). The cerebrospinal fluid is produced in the central nervous system and bathes and nourishes the brain, spinal cord and spinal nerves. The cerebrospinal fluid has a rhythmic flow to deeply, softly and powerfully move all the bones and soft tissues of the body. In an expanding and condensing fashion, it can even provide fluid support to reorganize the myofascia. By embodying the cerebrospinal fluid and its rhythm, we can provide a deep sense of ease and wholeness in ourselves and our clients. 

This class is based on principles of Body-Mind Centering® and is aimed to help practitioners refine their somatic presence, manual applications and support somatic intelligence through skilled touch and movement. Participants learn to broaden and apply their touch and presence to the modalities and protocols they already use. 

We begin class with simple qigong exercise and continue with informative talks, demonstration, hands-on and experiential activities. Please wear comfortable, modest clothing.

Our Internal Organs: The Body’s Contents and Vitality (Asheville, NC) with Bob Lehnberg

Our internal organs are contained by our skeletal structure and provide us with the vital functions of life as well as our sense of self, volume and authenticity. Physiologically they perform the basic bodily functions of breathing, circulation and digestion. Spatially they offer us three-dimensional presence in posture and movement. Organs also serve as the seat of emotions, feelings and inner reactions. Through an embodied approach, we can utilize unique ways to facilitate access and provide balance to organs individually and as a whole system. Knowledge of their location, shape and tone informs us to adjust the weight, pressure and rhythm of our touch. In an easeful way, we find balance and connection within ourselves and our clients. This class is based largely on principles of Body-Mind Centering® and is aimed to help practitioners refine their somatic presence, manual applications and support somatic intelligence through skilled touch and movement. Participants learn to broaden and apply their touch and presence to the modalities and protocols they already use.

Class is open to all levels of experience. We begin class with simple qigong exercise and continue with demonstration, hands-on and experiential activities. Please wear comfortable, modest clothing. For more information visit: www.intouchsomatics.com.

Self-Care for Resilience and Ease (Asheville, NC - Center for Massage School) Jessica Mark

  • Center for Massage & Natural Health (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

As bodyworkers, our self care can easily drop to the bottom of the priority list. We can often feel burn out and resentment creep in when we least expect it. Sustainability in our lives and career is possible when we learn to strengthen our relationship to the autonomic nervous system. Learn how to restore and balance the body's nervous system every day, not just on vacation, and increase your capacity for vitality and strength.

What you will learn in this course:

· Restorative postures and breathing techniques to tone and strengthen the parasympathetic nervous system

· The anatomy of stress, anxiety, and the vagus nerve

· To identify how stress manifests in the body and how ease is sensed physiologically

· Techniques to tonify the fluid system, give structural integrity through the skeletal system, and find space through awareness of energetic boundaries

· The physiology of how our body’s systems work together to store and release energy

A little about the modality:

This class teaches an embodied approach to how stress, anxiety, and imbalance manifest in the body and provides tools to understand how to shift these sensations into strength and resilience. The course will include restorative yoga, breath exercise, meditation, and vagus nerve strengthening exercises. Discussion and lecture will be used to understand the anatomy and physiology of the nervous system. Participants will leave with an individually crafted plan to implement these techniques into every day life.

The concepts of alignment and attunement, holding space, interrupting patterns, and offering options will be explored as they relate to the natural reflexive responses of rebound, recoil, remembered emotional response, follow on response, and ongoing action.
