Developmental Movement for Trauma Recovery

All Levels

Diane Bruni - TH1BRU

Many of us have lost our ability to experience both movement and emotional diversity despite engaging in a dedicated yoga practice. We know we want to broaden both our movement and emotional capacity, yet we get stuck on a rectangular mat ,replaying moments like broken records in our minds. Join Diane Bruni and Jane Clapp for a foundational understanding of developmental movement patterns, the impact that traumatic stress has on our autonomic nervous system and the ability to enhance trauma recovery through revisiting movements we performed before we had language.

Yoga, Fascia, Aging and Resiliency

All Levels, Teacher Training, therapuetic

Diane Bruni - FR2BRU

As we age our tissues become less resilient. Like an old elastic band that just doesn_t bounce back, our bodies function in much the same way. Stretching alone won_t help. In fact, too much stretching could lead to over stretching and weakening of the muscles and connective tissues. Staying resilient as we age takes practise, we become we what train into our bodies. This workshop is designed for people who have noticed that they_re losing that springy feeling that comes with youth and want to learn how to bring the spring back into their bodies and lives.
