"When the Diaphragm is open the heart can live without fear." Dr. Randolf Stone, Polarity Therapy Founder
Dr. Stone, the founder of Polarity Therapy referred to the Respiratory Diaphragm as the neutral stabilizer of the body. We will experientially explore the dynamics of the multi-layers of the Breath & Respiratory Mechanism with an emphasis on the Diaphragm, Lungs & Bronchial passageways. We will delve into both the energetics as well as the anatomy & physiology of these key structures in the body. Develop awareness of these important respiratory structures under your hands. Come away with tangible bodywork tools & energy maps to listen to and bring balance to the Respiratory System.
Class content will include exploring the role of the Respiratory Diaphragm as:
~The vital link between the Air/Heart chakra & Fire/Solar plexus chakra;
~The bridge between the conscious & unconcious realms ;
~The Diaphragm's relationship to the viscera & structure of the body;
~The role of stress on this neutral stabilizer of the body;
~The Mind/Body connection of the Breath, Lungs & Diaphragm;
~Experiential table work & polarity relationships to balance and support the Respiratory System;
~Gentle energy-exercises & sound healing to enhance the Breath & Respiratory Diaphragm opening.
This is a highly experiential class that incorporates a whole brain learning approach. In a grounded fashion, it will enhance awareness tools and practices that invite embodiment on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels and support deep listening skills of intuition and cultivation of being
“a neutral witness” in this approach to healing.
