THE WORKSHOPS ARE SOLD OUT
Time: 9.30am – 5.45pm
The heart as an organ is key to our physical and emotional life. Keeping your heart healthy is not just about what we eat and aerobic exercise. Our posture, flexibility, emotional state are key to heart health as well. In this workshop, we will also learn to gain a calm, centered and mindful state with the help of heart movement and imagery.
The heart is formed by flow. The process is very similar to the development of a river. The heart consists of several layers of a tough muscular wall, the myocardium. A thin layer of tissue, the pericardium, covers the outside, and another layer, the endocardium, lines the inside. These layers are key to the flexibility and movement of the heart.
The heart cavity is divided down the middle into a right and a left heart, which in turn are subdivided into two chambers. The heart, although a single organ, can be considered as two pumps that propel blood through two different circuits. One of these circuits is more vertical, the other is more horizontal, like a T bar orientation. The significance of this arrangement and many other fascinating facts will be explored at this workshop.
The organs of our body not only carry out our physiological functions; the vital work of maintaining, renewing and reproduction. They also serve an important role in the support of posture and movement. Yet in the western world they are generally not considered, when it comes to training the body. Until now!
In this workshop you will learn how to image your kidneys and their movement in relation to adjacent structures, when you breathe, stand and move. This will release tension in your back, create a natural sense of lift in your spine and greatly improve your posture.
Your kidneys move up and down inside your body about 2-3cm with every breath, they process 45 liters of blood per hour and the length of their tubes would almost make it around the planet.
You will understand their basic physiological function and what they need to function well.
We will do ball exercise lying supine and especially look at the relationship between the psoas major muscle and the kidneys.
