We move, walk, talk, dance, sing, turn, run, lift and work. Our muscles and bones are the foundation that gives us form and provides the locomotion we need to engage in our daily lives. We alternate between movement for work and movement for pleasure while seeking oneness with our bodies, mind, and spirit.
Join Phyllis D. Light for a unique look at Musculoskeletal System...how we are connected, how we move, how we release tension, and how we can become at peace with our bodies. Part lecture, part Movement as Body Awareness, this class will cover the building blocks of the Musculoskeletal System, the different types of muscle fibers, and connective tissue, and herbs, supplements and foods to help keep the tissues of the system healthy and strong. Phyllis will also talk about Herbs for Aches and Pains and what to do when our locomotive system is injured or damaged with plantar fasciitis, backaches, fibromyalgia, cramps, osteoarthritis, tendinitis, bursitis, and other such injuries. We'll discuss posture and the effect that standing and sitting have on our internal organs. We'll talk about the nature of fascia and how to keep it healthy, strong, and flexible.
This isn't your typical class on the Musculoskeletal system! Wear comfortable clothing and come prepared to learn, move, dance, and breathe...not necessarily in that order! We will embrace the Four Elements...Fire, Water, Air, and Earth...and move with each. We'll also stretch that most important muscle--the laugh muscle!
Lunch is included both days and may include grass-finished beef, pastured pork or chicken, salad, cooked veggies, dessert and tea.
