In daily practice, we tend to view movement work in terms of client education. We know that working with perception and coordination helps our structural interventions go more easily, work more deeply, and improve the odds that changes will last. But how is your own embodiment during sessions? Are you successfully applying movement concepts in your own structure while working with clients?
In this practical presentation, we flip the functional focus back on ourselves and discuss specific ways we practitioners can work with our own experience to supercharge the work. We’ll take a practical look at common movement concepts and explore ways to apply them to improve our spectrum and quality of touch; our presence and the unspoken message it speaks to the client; and our own self-care.
