Yoga can help reduce stress, lower blood pressure and improve heart function according to the Mayo Clinic. Every hatha yoga posture is composed of threads of awareness which, through intention, become lines of action. Performing a yoga posture is about finding and holding those lines of action, and the shape of the posture follows. 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.

When treating sport and work related injuries, understanding the concept of the spine, innervating spinal segments, channel relationships and the role of vertebral fixations and facilitated segments contributing to musculoskeletal injury is crucial. It is imperative for the practitioner to understand that there is a segmental relationship with the spinal cord, the organs (zang fu) and the myofascial tissues that can support health or be adversely affected by their inherent neural and meridian interrelationship. When pathology exists in one area, all tissues associated along the neural pathway will be affected, not unlike the organ and channel relationship where pathology in one ultimately affects the other.

Continuing Education

The eyes record everything we encounter. However, formal education forces our eyes into ‘seeing’ a fixed two-dimensional view of the world which robs us and our brain of flexibility. This results in ‘box-thinking.’ Understanding the anatomy of the eyes and the connection to the thalamus and visual cortex helps us release the energy they have had to absorb. In so doing we reduce stress in the eyes, the brain and the entire body. Thurs-Sun, Aug 6-9, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Instructor: Etienne Peirsman. (29 CEUs, PDAs, CMEs)

Continuing Education

Survival is the ultimate focus of our body’s systems in order for us to fulfill our life’s purpose and guarantee procreation/evolution. The heightened state of fight or flight causes the ‘stress cascade’. Understanding the brain as an electric system and understanding the nuclei that are involved with the stress cascade gives us the opportunity to release their static electricity - also known as trauma. Sat-Tues, Aug 29-Sept 1, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Instructor: Etienne Peirsman. (29 CEUs, PDAs, CMEs)
