Awaken, enliven, and renew your body & soul with this exclusive 10-hour workshop in the Bowspring method with Desi Springer and John Friend.
The Bowspring is a universal postural template for optimizing any movement or posture — yoga, athletics, and especially moving around in our daily life—for greater lightness, agility, ease, and power. This dynamic alignment method is also highly therapeutic for any musculo-skeletal issues including lower back problems, hip pain, knee or shoulder injuries.
Most importantly, the Bowspring method integrates a mindfulness training with the cultivation of compassion and accountability to help each of us create our own individual destiny. In this weekend, we are offering a transformative shift in self-knowing, which can reveal a path toward harmony and long-term health.
In each class, students will be taught katas - set sequences of simple, repeated movements which in addition to being the flowing form for learning and practicing the Bowspring unveil unconscious postural patterns. In this all-levels workshop, the most elemental forms of Level 1 Bowspring poses will be initially introduced.
With new awareness of our habitual body language through expanded postural understanding, we bring increasing balance to our mind-body wellness. By integrating this new postural technology of the Bowspring method, we gain the freedom to choose a healthier, more positive body language that we communicate not only to others, but to the deepest part of ourselves.
Through the Bowspring practice students can expect to cultivate increased:
Self-awareness, sensory perception and mental focus
Compassion, patience, and courage
Inner strength and courage to look at their unconscious mind-body habitual patterns
Stress management and control of nervous system reactivity
Authentic confidence and self-respect
Uniform muscle tone on all parts of the body
Tapering waistline and mounded glutes
Lightness, agility, springy power
Desi and John will guide any level of student, from beginners to yoga teachers and fitness instructors, from the base of the Bowspring experience to the summit of a powerful transformational experience in just one weekend. This workshop is composed of four classes that will progressively lead students from the most basic forms and movements of the Bowspring to a more intermediate/advanced practice.
