Your bones are as reliable as your posture is able to sustain your body weight in an efficient alignment. Your bones are as strong as your activity is dynamic and able to cope with challenges that demand strength. Your bones are as healthy as Nature meant, if your movements are natural and all your body parts are harmoniously coordinated.
Through the simple, effective Bones For Life movements, you will learn gradually and safely how to:
• Stimulate your bone strength and experience the biological optimism of a reliable skeleton
• Coordinate a springy and dynamic walk
• Align your posture into safe weight-bearing uprightness
• Develop your skill of restoring equilibrium
• Enhance the pleasure of moving
This class includes lessons on the floor and also in standing and walking.
“Bones took me by surprise. I hadn’t expected such big changes from all those little movements. Immediate relief from my chronic back pain tops the list of permanent benefits for me.” Terra Lagnerr
CHILD’SPACE BABY & PARENT CLASS
Supporting & Enhancing Babies’ Development – Laying the Groundwork for Lifelong Learning
Tummy Time Workshop
Does your baby fuss while on their tummy? In this gentle workshop you will gain techniques to support your baby, through touch and movement, so they begin to love tummy time. Understand why tummy time is important for your baby’s development. Your baby will begin to choose to lie on their front spontaneously and will explore while on their belly, as you discover the intricacies of the unfolding developmental process.
Babies learn through movement. The intricate process of development is ready to emerge in each baby, while some elements may need to be awakened, cultivated and given attention – when the time is right. Janelle supports what each baby has already learned to embody and also identifies what is missing, setting it in motion. The baby readily adopts the integrated movement and uses it. Janelle shares with parents how to enhance their baby’s development through proprioceptive touch. Touch sends messages to the brain – building maps that dictate how a person moves throughout their life. This is how to we can enrich our babies’ possibilities through neuromuscular learning and deepen our relationship through bonding with touch
