Advanced Bodywork: Touching the Core

Jan 03 - 10, 2016 Begins in 1 month
with Char Pias & Jessica Fagan

In this massage-intensive workshop, we will focus on the abdominal and pelvic regions of the body, addressing both energetic and structural dynamics. Often the abdomen is treated superficially, when in fact it is our center, our core, and the place of digestion and assimilation of all life experiences. The pelvic region is the "cradle," or seat of power, the bridge between the upper body and the legs. The psoas muscles, considered the fight/flight muscles of the human species, span this bridge.



We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.
