Self-Care for Bodyworkers: Body Mechanics

6 CE hours, $150

Taught by Dana Christy

As bodyworkers, our bodies are our most essential vessel for transmission and transformation. If we hope to have longevity in our practice, we must practice not only remedial but also preventative care for our precious instruments.

This class is specifically geared towards the kinds of work-related stressors our bodies experience. We will stock our toolbelts with different postures and practices for managing work-related tension and strain. We will explore ways that mindful body mechanics can support ease in our work – and how, in turn, this ease fosters more effective treatment for our clients. We will also work with yoga-adjacent postures that we can actually do for ourselves in the context of a session, that can be used on both the floor and the table. All bodies and abilities are welcome.
