APPLIED NEUROLOGY + INTUITIVE MOVEMENT TO EXPLORE PLEASURE FOR HEALING
FEB 26th 6 to 8 PM CST
Trama often disconnects us from our bodies. Chronic stress can lead to burnout that takes all the excitement, joy and fun out of life. Healing old wounds, changing behavior patterns and resolving stress can be intense, sometimes hard.
But it doesn’t always have to be! There can be pleasure in healing, excitement in growth, magic in expansion! It’s OKAY to enjoy self-care — really enjoy it — not just tick off one more box on the “well-rounded” person checklist. Healing can be laughter, connection and play.
Part of healing dissociation is coming back into the felt-sense, reclaiming sensation and building a relationship with the body. Processing stress comes through movement, and that movement is allowed to make you feel good — feel alive! It doesn’t have to be a number of steps ticked off on your wristwatch or an hour spent on some machine in a florescent-lit room. It can be an intimate time for feeling, exploring, experiencing bliss embodied.
There is power in your pleasure.
Pleasure is your birthright.
To experience this connection to our body, we will first learn tools to regulate the nervous system and move out of protective mode into a calm, open and curious state of being. We will use applied neurology to reconnect to areas of the body that are hard to feel and activate, to improve body awareness, enhance sensory perception and become grounded in the body.
Then we will use intuitive movement to explore pleasure for healing. We will drop our personal and spiritual growth practice from the head, into the body.
If you are ready to own your pleasure and begin cultivating an intamate, loving relationship with your body, we are ready for you!
In this workshop you will:
- Use applied neurology to reduce nervous system stress and become more open to exploring movement and pleasure.
- Practice sensory and proprioceptive training for hands to reduce stress and improve sensation.
- Learn brain-based exercises to improve pelvic floor connection.
- Be led in an intuitive movement, somatic flow that encourages pleasure as a healing practice.
- Explore mudra practice as means of non-verbal communication and self-expression.
- Create your own unique embodied practice that connects you to the power of your pleasure.
All participants will have unlimited access to a recording of the workshop.
