What's all this about Flexion? Students will examine how postural flexion patterns dominate ours and our clients lives and what we can do about it.
Reading, writing, computer and cell phone, cooking, driving, bodywork, conversation and so on, all put us in a 'flexed position'. We inhabit this posture more hours than we care to think about. This one-day workshop examines how chronic postural flexion effects our posture and our quality of life. Students will learn to identify flexion patterns and apply myofascial techniques to change unhealthy patterns.
What to bring:
1 set of sheets
Bring/wear a tank top and shorts or swimsuit
We suggest dressing in layers so you can acclimate yourself to the work and the environment
