Meeting in Motion: Connecting through difference Workshop with Jennifer Bury
“People are trapped in history. And history is trapped in them”
James Baldwin, Author
November 22th - 23th, 2017, WED & THU 3 to 6pm
Price: 165€ (or 140€ if you register before October 15th)
Our primary developmental movements such as reaching, grasping, pushing, and pulling
are the intrinsic basis for every move and gesture we make throughout our lives.
By paying attention to how we move in relationship to each other we will become aware of the unconscious expressive choices we make daily. This awareness presents us with choices of how
we interpret and respond to others, enabling us to literally shape how we move through our lives. This workshop encourages childlike exploration and learning through action, in the form of a mini lecture, interactive discussion and lively, movement-based-play. We will be learning in action, from micro-movements to moving fully throughout the room. We will focus on difference,
not as a barrier, but rather as an opportunity for connection with each other.
My wish for this workshop is to help increase our sense of compassion for each other and for ourselves.
“You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.” Plato

The Four Pillars Of A Healthy Spine: Emotions, Strength, Balance, Flexbility
THE SPINE is a masterpiece of design containing over one hundred joints and associated muscles and ligaments.

DIGEST FOR LIFE : Organ health for your stomach.
July, tuesday 4th - 1pm to 15:30pm
Organ Imagery for Health, Alignment and Flexibility. Filters for Life: Organ health for your Kidneys. The organs of our body not only carry our physiological functions: The vital work of maintaining, renewing, and reproduction. They also serve an important role in the support of posture and movement. Yet in the western world, organs are generally not considered when it comes to training the body. The organs fill out space in our torso and skull and from “joints” with other organs, bones, and muscles. Compression, suction, and suspension forces relate all these structures to each other. Knowing where and how, combined with dynamic imagery will provide you with a whole new avenue for improvement and well-being. The Franklin Method distinguishes itself by focusing on imagery, self-touch, and movement exercises that can be used by anyone in any setting. All types of imagery are used to promote movement, flexibility, strength, and general health. This course will demonstrate how organ training with imagery can improve movement, posture, flexibility, and strength; improve the organs physiological functioning; and improve stamina, digestion, circulation, moode immune function, etc. Learn: The connection between organs, strength and flexibility How the diaphragm and organs interrelate in 3-D How the organs affect mood and relaxation
How Long : 2.5 hours
THE ART OF BREATHING
July, tuesday 4th - 4:30pm to 7:30pm
Many of us agree that breathing is very important not just for survival but our overall well being. Yet most of us don’t really know how it actually works. What is good breathing, what is the design, and what can prevent its proper activation? Your breathing influences the health of a variety of aspects like posture, heart, digestion, pelvic floor, emotions, learning ability, and energy levels.
In this workshop, we will come to understand the design, structure, and movements of the diaphragm, ribs, deep abdominal muscles and how they can work together to strengthen and free up both body and mind. Through easy to do imagery, touch, voice, and movement exercise we will explore the mechanics and physiology of breathing. We will explore the wave pattern of breathing up and down the spine and experience how we can use our breath as our positive energy thermostat.
- How breathing works and what it means to breathe well
- How posture and breathing are related
- How to use breathing to improve your endurance
- How to breath correctly in the Pilates exercises
How Long ? 3 hours

un moment de bien-être avec Sébastien
Mardi 25 avril 2017 de 18h à 19h30
Ouvert à tout public qui souhaite prendre un moment pour s’occuper de sa beauté extérieure et intérieure.
Le cours commence avec un gommage que l’on se fait soi-même.
Le gommage ou exfoliation permet à la peau de respirer en la débarrassant des impuretés et la rend plus douce et plus lisse.
Elle permet aussi d’activer la microcirculation en stimulant les petits vaisseaux sanguins du corps et du visage, ce qui favorise la régénération cellulaire.
Le cours se poursuit par des enchaînements de mouvements qui assouplissent le corps avec des exercices simples pour détendre les tensions, faire circuler et stimuler la puissance du corps sur le plan énergétique.
Viennent ensuite différents exercices de respiration en musique.
La respiration alternée a de multiples bienfaits: Développe la concentration, augmente les capacités intellectuelles, équilibre les hémisphères du cerveau, favorise le calme et le retour vers soi.
Veuillez apportez svp : un gant de crin et une serviette.

Beyond WordsThe Connection Between Us
with Jennifer Bury
“In a non-intrusive way Jennifer enables you to meet yourself,while you learn to use your body more e ec vely, more fully, more comfortably.“ Female CEO of a Fortune 500 communications company
We communicate with each other all the me - with and without words. This nonverbal communication,or “kinesthetic resonance”, is rarely recognized, yet provides the intrinsic basis from whichwe interpret and respond to the world around us.Through experimenting with our primary developmental movements in relationship to each other, we will become aware of our own unconscious expressive tendencies. This awareness expands our perception of ourselves and thereby increases our overall ability to connect with others.The workshop will include theoretical, experiential, and collaborative learning in the form of a mini-lecture, interactive discussion and engaged, action-based-play, to excite our curiosity for exploration and meaningful contact.
“Do not the most moving moments of our lives and us all without words?“ Marcel Marceau
