COURSE DESCRIPTION: Explore a blend of twister-like positions and Ai Chi movements in multi-planar exercises to become more malleable. Allow freedom of the layers of muscle surfaces and tendons, to slide, wriggle, compress, and hydrate the fascial sheath. Ai Chi patterns reinforce the multi-dimensional motions for arthritis, Parkinson’s, MS, orthopedic issues, and chronic pain.

 

COURSE OBJECTIVES:

1)  Experience three motions for release in the upper body.

2)  Explore the paths of the lateral lines and their role in locomotion.  

3)  Determine the four arm lines for shoulder stabilization and range or motion.

4)  Experiment with animal-like body yawns on land to release tightness in the superficial front line.
