Craniosacral techniques are safe and easy to use. Craniosacral therapy brings balance and improves health by working with the structures around the central nervous system (i.e., bones of the spine and skull), as well as the fascia system (the continuous membrane throughout our entire body). Learn how to feel the craniosacral rhythm that permeates all parts of the body, and use techniques to work with muscles, joints, arms and legs, as well as several key areas in the abdomen and chest. This class has been created due to the numerous requests from those who wish to use these techniques with friends and family, but who aren’t eligible to take our craniosacral courses offered to health practitioners. Dec 6-7, Sat-Sun, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Instructor: Nancy Witt and Einat Arian. (14 CEUs)

Yoga can help reduce stress, lower blood pressure and improve heart function according to the Mayo Clinic.

In this class, simple postures will be deeply explored as a way for you to more fully experience being in your body. Iyengar Yoga Fundamentals is for experienced beginners and intermediate students.

Bowenwork is a soft-tissue bodywork technique developed in Australia by Tom Bowen, starting in the early 50’s and continuing into the 80’s. The technique involves applying specialized “moves” to specific areas of the body in order to facilitate the release of dysfunctional tension patterns within the neuromuscular and fascial systems. The results of which promote optimal postural realignment, internal organ function and overall relaxation. The work is helpful for both acute and chronic health conditions in babies, children and adults. Sat-Sun, Jan10-11, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Instructor: Sandra Gustafson.

Do you feel like you spend so much time caring for others that you are left with no time to care for yourself?

Journey into the ethnomedical healing practices of the Manchu-Tungus groups of Southeastern Siberia who gave the word “shaman” to the world. Viewing the human condition from a multidimensional and ecological perspective we’ll explore where Eastern and Western models of alternative healing overlap and where they diverge within the context of pre-technical medicine. Alternative medical practitioners will discover that many of the bioenergetic systems of tribal medicine are similar in practice and theory but expand on the concept of an animistic approach in assessing disease and disorder in their clients. These concepts can be applied when addressing the causes, symptoms or presenting problems of an individual through a more holistic and ecological approach.
