Reference: The Extended Mind - The Power of Thinking Outside the Brain by Annie Murphy Paul (2021), Part I Thinking with our Bodies
These practices create comfort, concentration and coordination. They benefit everyone who sits, stands, walks and exercises while breathing. The material is easy to learn and implement. Benefit your personal practice and mental focus. Teach the techniques to your clients, colleagues, friends and family.
Each class includes unique uses of the Balansit and Precision Rotator Disc in conjunction with an elastic resistance band, hand weights and yoga block. You will be amazed and delighted to discover how such small, portable props can profoundly transform your clarity, focus and movement freedom.
* Fascia-focused movement practices alternate active sitting with movement sequences in prone, side-lying, supine, bridging, quadruped, high kneeling, planks and standing balance
* Explore how certain types of movement can extend your thinking beyond what is possible when you remain stationary
* Experience how low, medium and high intensity physical activity each exerts a distinct effect on cognition
* Coherent nose breathing, humming and Emotional Freedom Technique tapping regulate the autonomic nervous system and ventral vagus tone, reducing stress and enhancing clarity

* Standing movement sequences stimulate alertness and release of nitric oxide
