PRIVATE YOGA SESSIONS

” We are accustomed to the idea of IQ – measuring the intelligence of the brain. We are becoming more accustomed to EQ – the idea of emotional intelligence. What is needed is a map of the territory of KQ- kinaesthetic intelligence, the intelligence of the body in motion.”

~ Thomas W.Myers

Like most living matter, the body and mind are “pliable”. If we have an injury or repeat certain movements over and over again (as do musicians, tennis players, golf players, painters etc) we create a “domino effect” on the rest of the body to compensate for its stability and function. This is how we can come “out of alignment”. It is also through repetition of integrated movement that the body brings itself back into its (natural) alignment, stability and ease (Tensegrity).

 

” To find health is the object of a practitioner. Anyone can find disease.” ~ A.T. Still, DO

Although I practice hands on work, most of my attendance is based on educating my clients how to move on their own. They feel noticeable change after they leave a session in their body breathing, posture, joint mobility, stability and core-strength, as well as mental capacity to stay present, relaxed and grounded.

The Yoga Wheel approach is based on somatic integration, which basically means bringing the mind back into body. Grounded in our study and exploration of Embodied Anatomy, we  go  back to  how, by which unbroken movement patterns, was our body initially formed, starting  with the first 8 weeks of Embryogenesis and then later through slow and sequential development into a two-legged walking creature. This way we cultivate the KQ, the intelligence in motion.

By mindfully and repeatedly re-tracking and reclaiming these somatically integrated movements, we hydrate, regenerate and re-awaken the connections though the tissues and layers, creating the environment of “freedom” and ease in neuromuscular and fluid pathways. Taking into account new research on bio-tensegrity and connective tissue networks, instead of looking at the framework of some 600 muscles, we attend and re-pattern the connection of the “One Muscle” of the body.

This allows greater organ capacity (breathing, digestion, elimination etc.), greater capacity of the nervous system (clear thinking, reasoning, greater memory etc.), as well as a more balanced  “chemistry” of our endocrine system.

Two  year old Kai playing on his moms’ mat. Look at his naturally quiet back, the connection of the arm lines and the leaning quality of the head. This is exactly what we look in our Shirshasana ( headstand) preparation. You can really see the “one muscle” of his body.
