Aims of the workshop
To describe and explain the workings of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.
To explain the primary stress response in relation to our anatomy and lead a discussion on the meaning of stress, tension and trauma in a 21st Century context and then guide students through movements and postures to illustrate this.
To explain how the fascial and myofascial networks react to stress and how certain tensions get held in regions of the body, and where these forces transfer to.
To suggest ways of interacting with the fight or flight process.
To understand how the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems work and to understand the anatomy of fight, flight and freeze.
To develop knowledge of stress, tension and trauma both intellectually as well as physically within one’s own body and explore how these apply to posture, movement and asana practice.
To explore and understand how the fascial and myofascial networks react to stress and understand how certain tensions get held in the body and transferred to other parts, using the floor in practice to dissipate tension and use helpful tension to inform us.
Please note that is a day focussing on listening and discussion rather than practice.
