The Frozen Child: Talk and Healing Meditation
by Absolute Specialists

Clare Walters is the founder of Focussed Mindfulness and trains coaches, therapists and body workers in advanced techniques for healing trauma . she is giving an introductory talk at Kinetic on Saturday 23rdFebruary. Focussed Mindfulness is a powerful and  flexible approach for getting to the root cause of emotional and chronic physical pain and beginning the process of reconciliation and healing. The client is then able to learn the approach so they can use it to support themselves after the session. The ‘Frozen Child’ is used to directly address unconscious childhood trauma, which could otherwise have life-long consequences.

In this talk Clare will give the background to the approach and will the hold a guided meditation so you can experience the healing technique for yourself. There will then be a Q and A session. The talk is £20 – book here:

ALL NEW! Take your postural assessment skills to the next level!
Suitable for dance instructors, pilates and yoga instructors and all movement/physical therapists.

Ida Rolf said, “seeing is touch at a distance”. Understanding skeletal relationships within the body is the first step in helping our clients unwind movement and postural patterns that are causing pain, dysfunction and keeping them from optimal movement.  “Touch is seeing up close” being able to accurately palpate bones to determine relationships is key in our ability to accurately describe those relationships.

101:  This one day workshop explores relational anatomy and helps build your seeing and palpation skills to determine skeletal patterns and how they interact in the body. Learn the language of BodyReading, tilt, bend, shift and rotate to accurately describe the geometry of the body in a way your client can understand. Assess common postural patterns in all planes of motion.  Skills learned today can be immediately used with your clients tomorrow. This is a must for any practitioner in movement and bodywork and will help take your practice to the next level.

102:  Now you are able to see and describe bony relationships learn about the inter-relationships between the Anatomy Trains and the skeleton. The Anatomy Trains lines of pull and force transmission are impacted by skeletal alignment and can also hold the bony alignment in place for better or worse.

“Where you think it is, it ain’t!” – Ida Rolf

Learn how the problem can be very distant from the area of pain.

This workshop covers:

  • How the meridians can hold a postural pattern and be influenced by skeletal alignment.
  • Tensegrity
  • Concentric and eccentric loading and the forces that shape our body
  • Basic functional assessments to see what is moving, what isn’t and what may be moving too much!
  • How a local restriction can have a global impact
  • How to document your findings
