In Sessions 1 thru 3, our goals are to work towards loosening the grips of your body, areas around the shoulders, chest, jawline, feet, and ankles, and sides of the legs. You could consider these three consecutive sessions to be the imperative foundation in which to revive the remainder of the work.
*RolfYoga Program, Level 1: Building Foundation. While going thru 1-3, practice level 1.
Sessions 4 thru 7 would be considered where the bulk of the work occurs. Here we begin with the arches of your feet, up to the pelvis and around the lower back. Continuing on thru the entire system we will address sections of the body as they relate to the whole. Think of a cobweb and if you pull on the lower left, the upper right is affected. It is normal, during this segment of sessions 4-7 to feel an array of things from joy, to sadness as the body is undergoing reconstruction. It is important during this time, to take good care of the self and not overdo anything. Pay attention to how you are feeling and honor that place. Journal.
*RolfYoga Program, Level 2: Learning Stability. While going thru 4-7, practice level 2.
Sessions 7 thru 10 are undoubtedly my most favorite sessions to offer as your practitioner as we're more meditative and 'mobile' here. In session 7 we could call this "putting the head on" as we work to balance the cranium in time and space - allowing for it to 'float' from the neck spine. Who doesn't need that!? In 8 and 9 we balance both girdles, and in 10 we wrap up any loose ends, stubborn areas, and aim to help you find your new home in your body. Ideally, by now, you are a more upright human walking gracefully in the world with brand new awareness about yourself that you get to explore.
*RolfYoga Program, Level 3: The Spiral to the Staircase. Practice level 3 while going thru 7-10.
