Level 1 Bowspring 3-Day Course with Desi Springer and John Friend
5-7 May 2017, Munich
In this 15-hour, 3-Day course on the Bowspring, experienced students will gain a transformational immersion in this powerful practice of Elemental forms and Level 1 poses of the Bowspring method.
The focus of this course is to go deeper into the refined subtlety of the Bowspring method for the 10 key areas of the mind-body. From the detailed geometry of the ribcage and shoulder girdle to the soft liquidy sensitivity of the finger pads and toe pads, the students will gain empowered awareness of themselves on all levels of their body, mind, and heart in this 3-day course.
Unconscious postural habits are revealed for each student in this course using the Bowspring method so that there can be a conscious change toward greater harmony and freedom from chronic misalignment. Each student in the course will be assessed for their individual unconscious postural default in the key 10 key areas. New insights into postural patterns of standing, walking and sitting lead to new choices for students to change their daily life patterning toward a higher functional alignment.
In this 3-Day Course students will be taught how to create greater mind-body connection using less force, greater sensitivity, and the pulsation of the breath in a variety of Bowspring Elemental forms.
Each of the 10 key areas have a A-B-C sequence to make it accessible to any level of student. After this 3-Day Course in the Bowspring method, students will be able to apply these postural technologies to live their daily routine with fluid lightness and vibrant tone for optimal mind-body health.
Level 1 Bowspring Course presents postural technology to:
Therapeutically balance the sub-systems of the body: Wings – hands, arms, and shoulders; and Roots – feet, legs, and hips; Spools – waist and neck.
Use deep breathing techniques to reboot oxygen, carbon dioxide and pH levels to a healthy balance.
Teach centering and conscious relaxation techniques to respond to stress in a balanced way during daily life using Bowspring and breathing technologies.
