Using Pilates and Yoga therapeutic techniques to help ourselves and our clients
This is the practical, hands on, sequel to Samantha’s signature course “Pilates for Injuries and Pathologies” taught in Thessaloniki in September, 2022.
And a sequel to the Abhaya Yoga “Subtle Anatomy & Yoga Therapy” course, taught at Zen Rocks also in September. However, anyone can attend this Part 2 practical course, even if you have not attended one of the theoretical courses before. Of course, having attended one or both of the theory courses before would give you excellent knowledge and more complete understanding.
Regardless, just show up. In this special first time course you will gain an embodied sense of bringing healing and balance into your whole system from feet to head, with specific therapeutic exercises for each part of the body.
Description of the Retreat:
During this 5-day retreat dedicated to therapy for various injuries and pathologies, we will take an innovative, totally practical approach to healing the body. We will be called to understand our body’s anatomy, inch by inch, to feel, move, bring into balance and health the different parts of the body from feet to head, while inviting balance to our body-mind constitution as a whole. We will learn therapeutic methods and techniques for different pains and injuries. We will touch our body, and move our feet, spine, arms and legs, neck and head, consciously, while exploring therapeutic exercises from a wide Yoga and Pilates repertoire.
We will be called to practice and teach therapeutic exercises in partner settings, so we can truly experience the application of the techniques. We will practice Therapeutic Yoga in the morning and Therapeutic Pilates in the afternoon. In each session there will be a part where we move in an embodied way, with a felt sense of our body and each body part separately, and as a whole. We will imagine the presence of an injury and work with therapeutic movement on ourselves first, and then proceed by teaching these techniques to our partner.
This course is a must for any movement teacher or therapist, but it is also open to all movement practitioners.
Before and after these intensive practice sessions, you can enjoy yourselves in the beautiful retreat setting of Zen Rocks, content and surrounded by olive trees, blue skies, and seas.
This course – retreat will be held at ZEN ROCK MANI
