Movement Medicine: Nature’s Pathway

January 4, 2020 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

with Michelle Nayeli Bouvier

Yogic embodiment practices heighten connection to our instinctual body, and bring an ease to flowing with life. In this session, students will examine the patterns of Nature within the body and use them as guidance for movement practice pathways. Areas of focus involve concepts from modern movement science and somatics in application to joint health, proprioception and caring for our nervous system. We will diversify our embodied awareness through floorwork, fluid core connection, joint mobilization, and mini vinyāsas that liberate familiar movements from linear models of imagining the body. This workshop invites students to unwind habitual movement patterns and expand options for greater ease in the movements of life as well as our embodied practices.

Learning objectives include:

  1. variation in human form
  2. joint centration (alignment) & safety
  3. sustainability of movement practices
  4. a look into modern movement science
  5. the magic of interoception (internal, embodied awareness)
  6. the power of free-form movement
