Fascial Makeover: Hands, Feet, Fingers, Toes, Face: Prioritizing your Periphery

All Levels, Teacher Training, Anatomy

Jill Miller - SA1MIL

Your periphery contains the most sensory-nerve–rich regions of your body, so when injuries take root in these tissues, the domino effect has miserable consequences. Hand issues are pervasive due to overuse of technology; feet folly is rampant due to footwear and gait; face tensions from eyestrain impact your posture; and the list goes on. In this workshop, we will be performing a fascial makeover to both unravel tensions and re-normalize the fine joints and myofascias in all of your high-sensing parts.

6 Pack Diaphragm - Core Reform from Inside Out

All Levels

Jill Miller - SA2MIL

The respiratory diaphragm is a governing muscle of whole-body stability, agility and neurological balance. Any movement practice that does not account for the function and physiology of this muscle is under-serving the performance-based body. Through embodied anatomy exercises, learn to analyze the strength, flexibility and range of motion of this myofascial structure in yourself and your clients. You will simultaneously deconstruct and build new kinetic chains in your torso and relate them to a bigger picture of conscious breathing, spinal integrity, digestion, emotion and newfound realms of somatic awakening. As a bonus, you will learn accessible drills to stimulate your vagus nerve for parasympathetic down-regulation
