Guided stretching and manual manipulation (acupressure, massage, cupping, warm stones and heat application) are forms of bodywork used to decrease and eliminate fascial adhesions. Fascia is connective tissue that surround internal structures of the body. Restrictions from fascia occur naturally due to overuse, structural imbalance, lack of movement and trauma (physical, mental, emotional). Fascia can bind in a fashion similar to the way an external wound is wrapped in gauze. This restriction inflicts pressure on structures and surrounding areas causing referred pain, nerve impingement and misalignment. Stress reduction is a profound and nurturing effect of intentional healing touch. In an atmosphere of serenity and nonjudgement we enhance our ability to surrender into a deep state of relaxation, meditation and affirmation. A holistic effect of bodywork is the decreased dichotomy between body, mind and spirit.
Subtle and profound release of spinal and muscular tension may be experienced through a yoga practice customized to meet our unique needs and goals. Mental and emotional release may also be attained through mindful breathing, movement and meditation. Yoga is a luminous practice, through integration of breath, movement and stillness, that cultivates wellness, acceptance and clarity.
As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others,
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there
will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
