Open to experienced manual and movement practitioners.
We once asked Dr Ida Rolf what part of the body she would specialise in if she had to specialise. She said ’The 12th rib’, and we all laughed. But she was serious: Around a dozen muscles attach to the 12th rib, as short as it is. The lower ribs marry the rib cage to the pelvis, join breathing and walking, and hold the kidneys and adrenals in their embrace. The lower ribs are often ‘locked’ by common postural compensation, so freeing this part of the breath is more involved than just mobilising the ribs themselves.
This workshop concentrates on the healthy functioning of these ribs and the posterior part of the breath, but the techniques will range from neck to knees. Looking at the local and global implications of restriction in the breath and how this has a knock on effect on all structures.
