Informative Practice

The mind becomes your tool, and you are no longer the tool of your mind.
— Serge Augier
When you run after your thoughts, you are like a dog chasing a stick: every time a stick is thrown, you run after it. Instead, be like a lion who, rather than chasing after the stick, turns to face the thrower. One only throws a stick at a lion once.
— Milarepa

Stretch Therapy, Internal Processing & Meditation

Informative Practice is path to better know and understand yourself. Having a way to ‘tune in’ create awareness and responsiveness with your body and mind. Learning to pay attention, in a particular way, while doing particular things can lead to dramatic changes.

Simply put: You will learn to feel and understand your body through movement, and your mind through thought; And you will learn to feel and understand your mind through movement, and your body through thought.

I have come at this practice from two directions. This was not intentional. I was researching, teaching and practicing for some time and by happy accident I noticed that the practices were overlapping. The works and research from neuroscience, pain science, clinical mindfulness and medicine started to blur with the teaching from branches of Tibetan Buddhist Meditation, Yoga, martial arts and contemplative traditions around the world.

Modulating your stress response, developing a softer and more relaxed body, learning how you are ‘put together’ and noticing the quality and nuance of how you are moving and thinking. And giving yourself space to accept or change these things.

You will learn:

  • To stay in touch with how your body is feeling and performing

  • How to better control your emotional reactivity

  • Practice physical movements with grace and ease

  • Manage and overcome your stress

  • To develop an ‘uncommon internal awareness’

  • Breathe better

  • Transition between sympathetically aroused and para-sympathetically aroused states

Essential for those who wish to maintain a physical practice for a long time, those wishing for a more contemplative path, and those who wish to better control with minds and bodies.
