Class Schedule and Themes

March 18, 2021   Arriving Moving Sensing

Roger will guide participants in the fundamental principles of Trager® movement and touch for a unique somatic learning, enjoyment and as a natural integration into daily life. 

 

March 25, 2021   Getting a Footing on FEET

Feet are the foundation to our entire upright moving, living and biotensegral organism. Our feet help us effectively rebound due to the earth’s gravitational forces. Discover how your feet can deliver global easing, springiness and natural upward support!

April 1st, 2021     Dissolving the Mask beneath the Masks

The face is deceptively clever in masking held tension in the muscles of the face. These expressive muscles are very thin and are easily and positively influenced by soft touch. Come and learn how to groom your facial tension away, and see how this dissolving of tension spreads beyond the face.

April 8, 2021        Uncovering Natural Posture

The word posture is a loaded word. Sit up straight, pull your shoulders back, chest out, or the cloak of “I have terrible posture” or ”I have been told that I have a weak core”. These negative and often inaccurate exclamations solidify the brain’s negative neuroplasticity, or the dark side of neuroplasticity. In my next online TRAGER® Movement and Self-care class I will guide participants through a thorough softening and washing out of the muscular fabric that typically impedes our true, mobile and natural posture. I look forward to moving and feeling our way into in more a casual, comfortable and rising posture!

April 15, 2021       Breathing and Moving

When ordinary easy breathing meets movement, a window of synergistic integration creates a space for a restorative process in self-awareness. In the next Trager Movement and Self-care class (4/15/21) ‘Breathing and Moving’, we will arrive into our own felt sense of what Dr. Milton Trager described as “A subtle form of breathing”. This practice will set the stage for easy, fluid and expansive movement. Visiting your own measure of being with your ordinary breathing will support and facilitate everyday better movement!
