Integrating Resilience 

with Elizabeth Salzman Praemassing and Martha Kastler

October 28, 3:45 pm - 6:15 pm

Join Roanoke Rolfer Elizabeth Salzman Praemassing and Havening facilitator Martha Kastler for a unique offering. Integrating Resiliency will look deeply into posture and movement habit and how it is reflective of mood and well-being. Elizabeth will teach techniques for working intelligently with the body for proper alignment so the body has the information it needs to be resilient. There will be focus on stabilizing and balancing the body. We need a stable and balanced body that is ready to handle life physically and we need to cultivate resilience in the mind with the capacity to bounce back emotionally from traumatic events. Martha will guide you into a series of psychosensory practices to release blocks and create a more resilient neural landscape. When body and mind are balanced, we create high function, resilience, and well-being. Cost is $35 for members and $40 for non-members.

Gentle Somatic Yoga: 
Awaken the Possible
with Patty Bartoldus
November 10, 11:45 am - 1:15 pm

Gentle Somatic Yoga (GSY) incorporates slow, mindful movements that amplify body awareness. This allows the student to self-correct and permanently release persistent stress-based patterns from within their body (Soma). The restorative sequences, called Somatic Movement Flows®, are ideal for unwinding stiffness, pain, and postural imbalances and will dramatically increase flexibility through brain-to-muscle re-education. From this place of newfound freedom, we naturally return to our generative state of peace and wellbeing. GSY has been synthesized by Integrative Therapist and Yoga Teacher James Knight, E-RYT, CHSE. His progressive method is the synergy of Hanna Somatic Education, Hatha yoga, meditation, and Core Energetics, as well as principles ascribed to quantum mechanics. It was inspired from the work of Eleanor Criswell, Thomas Hanna, Moshe Feldenkrais, Lawrence Gold, John Pierrakos, Toni Petrinovich, as well as others. Cost is $20 for members and $25 for non-members.
