Your single constant companion.
Utterly consistent. Utterly unchanging.
Your best friend. Or worst enemy.
The Big G
Gravity is literally the only constant in your life. The single most continuous, ever-present and unchanging stimulus on you from cradle to grave.
Far from being a problem to overcome, gravity is actually responsible for the remarkable body you (should) inhabit.
Invest some time and consciousness exploring the only thing you will ever know that does not change. Change your relationship with gravity!
Gravitate (explore gravity) to...
shift your perspective
re-activate your innate childlike curiosity
learn internal body awareness skills (Somatic Intelligence) which empower you to know how to move and how to be still
learn to use pain as an opportunity to understand your body and to fix it yourself
learn to know yourself
What to Expect
Expect to have your mind and body un-learned.
Expert Physical Touch/ Guidance (Dao-Yin) and Verbal Guidance.
Improved overall body function, blood flow and breathing.
Emphasis on tendon, fascia & nerve health.
Expect to have fun. Seriously!
We will deconstruct deliberately and deceptively simple movements. Like walking and standing etc.
Together with some simple shifts of perspective, this will allow us to challenge assumptions and patterns that have been with you since childhood or developed through trauma (physical and otherwise).
I will not tell you what is 'correct' or give you forms, structures or dogma. Instead you will acquire body intelligence to approach the learning/ investigation process for yourself.
[You will come to your own conclusions and choices. But it's likely that with investigation we will converge. ] (delete this paragraph?)
Standing Massage & Guidance
This will involve active hands-on massage with verbal guidance, mostly whilst you are standing.
I will help you generate the vectors that connect your body and your movement powerfully with gravity.
This will reveal your innate capacity to be relaxed whilst active and upright.
You will learn to stop fighting yourself. First Physically. Then Mentally and Emotionally.
Cannizzaro Park or Wimbledon Common, weather permitting. Otherwise Genki Clinic.
Gravitate sessions are initially offered only on a 1-2-1 basis.
