In this workshop we will explore embodying the brain through movement of the skeletomuscular and organ systems as they register their activity in the brain. Each brain half records the spatial and movement qualities of the same side of the body and witnesses the spatial and movement qualities of the opposite side of the body.
This is also manifested in the pathways of cellular movement in the forming of the body tissues and structure embryologically. It is further expressed in the emergence of basic movement patterns developing in the first year of life after birth.
Join Bonnie to explore and discover how this can manifest in your yoga, movement and hands-on practice.
Bonnie's workshop is a requirement for 200 & 500 YTT students.
