 About this class

 This new Elective educational offering will provide attendees with clear and practical Trager teachings in both tablework and Mentastics to address and support the body’s wonderous and sometimes under-appreciated lymph system. Group discussion topics will include contraindications, specific conditions, inflammatory presentations that clients bring, and the many benefits that the Trager Approach delivers to support and strengthen the lymph system. Each day will begin with guided somatic movement and open focus to local, regional and global body areas for the freeing -up of any lingering heaviness, congestion, and or stagnation. Time will be well invested in developing keener awareness of hidden held tensions and their unique patterning influence upon ‘lymph flow optimization’.  Guided demonstrations at the table will illustrate the ‘mapping’ and direction of superficial and deep lymphatic pathways, and their associated vessels, nodes, and ducts. My intention and passion in this new elective class is to give each participant a clearer and knowledge-based approach in meeting concerns,  in large part, related to the lymph system.

 I hope to see you in class for what will be a fun and engaging learning experience!
