Free your tissues
SLINGS MYOFASCIAL TRAINING®
'Myo' = muscle tissue & ‘Fascia’ = the body-wide fibrous tissue web that elastically surrounds, penetrates and connects all body systems. Stress & immobility dehydrates it and makes it matted & dense (like concrete!).
Slings is a holistic movement concept that can be incorporated into all body-minded practices. Open up your tissues and find connection, create ease of function and inside-out wellbeing offering you endless possibilities to nourish your tissues and your life!
De-stress & mobilise with a rich blend of exercises that are linked through your fascia from one end of the body to the other giving you short-term and long-lasting benefits!
Slings concepts are integrated within your group class or private or as a specialised class or workshop.
Teach your brain
SOMATIC MOVEMENT EDUCATION
"As we grow older, our bodies and our lives should continue to improve, right up until the very end."
Founder of Clinical Somatic Education
Learn somatic movement sequences based on the work of Thomas Hanna who discovered to free the mind you needed to free the body first.
Bringing your attention to the 3 reflexes of habitual patterning, sensing and connecting with the brain to release tension in the body. Simple but profound exercises to bring into a daily practice to free yourself from niggling aches & pains, fatigue, stiffness and immobility.
Somatic Movement Education is taught as stand alone sequences or integrated with other movement practices within group classes or private sessions.
