A 1-Day Introductory Workshop for massage therapists and bodyworkers

The Trager Approach® is a form of movement education and mind body integration that uses gentle touch and supported movements to elicit a long-lasting and positive feeling experience. In this workshop we will practice the principles of effortless movement, weighing and supporting with self and with partner in a variety of contexts. As the body’s unconscious contractile forces soften, lengthen and expand the mind calms and gradually surrenders to the underlying pleasant feeling. Easy and playful movements help to integrate this positive state further anchoring it as a helpful habit! Is your body tired and sore of pushing against the same tense muscles week after week? Would you like to follow the path of no resistance..? The Trager Approach® might be just what you have been looking for!
