Biodynamics in Osteopathy

In this class we will continue to explore the parallels between osteopathy and indigenous body work. Participants will learn to work with the biodynamic model within osteopathy. This is especially useful in cranial osteopathy, which we will explore at some length, as well guiding treatment toward integration of the whole body as a dynamic unit of function.

Note: This is Weekend 11 of the North American Healing Arts (NAHA) 2016-17 curriculum.

Location: Center for the Advancement of Therapeutic Arts (CATA) in NYC. (www.cata.com) 212.225.1529.

Working with Levers and Fulcrums

This class provides the osteopathic parallels to Indigenous North American body work approaches. Participants will learn how to apply and use levers and fulcrums to balance the body's tissue and the body's systems in specific and effective ways. The class will further explore how to use these techniques to affect the nervous system and physiology. Levers and fulcrums are a core fundamental osteopathic principal used to treat the body.

Nada Yoga Teacher Training

Where you'll find Joseph in 2017: after Auroville, at the 200-hr Nada Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh, India. You can read about it at http://www.nadyoga.org/nada-yoga-teacher-training-in-india/

Here's part of the course description ...

What is Nada Yoga?

Nada Yoga is “union through sound”. The union of body, mind and spirit.

Nada Yoga is a branch of Yoga in which transformation is brought through the Shabd or Nada. The nearest translation of Shabd and Nada is sound or vibration. But Shabd or Nada are not the same as sound because they can be produced either by striking two objects known as Ahata sound or without striking two objects which is called Anahata sound. Anahata sound can be heard at the Anahata or heart chakra. Nada has the same place in yoga as energy has in science.

We can’t see energy, but we can feel it as vibrations. All energy, all vibrations generate sound. Sound is one way for us to experience this energy.

Sound Healing with Tuning Forks

  • Rochester, NY

Sound healing utilizes the art and science of the sonic ratios present in nature and the human body. Tuning forks offer a non-invasive method of healing and consciousness development. Tangible benefits include improved circulation and breathing, as well as reduced neuromuscular tension, joint pain & swelling and. Perhaps the most ancient healing modality in human evolution, sound vibration when properly applied stimulates the body's self-healing capacity, distributing essential neuro-chemicals and resetting the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. On an energetic level, specific sound frequencies have the effect of cleansing, clearing and balancing the body's auric field. Clients often report an immediate brightening of mood and a lasting sense of heightened well-being. 

This full-day training covers the principles of sound healing in an interactive lecture/discussion/demonstration format. Through extensive hands-on instruction (with table work), you will learn how to work with tuning forks in a therapeutic way for yourself and your clients, to promote physical health, vitality and creativity. This training is designed with bodyworkers in mind, but other interested persons will find it fascinating and are welcome to register based on space availability.

Beyond OM: The Role of Sound in Yoga and Movement

Full-day training with Joseph Schmidlin, DO, and Priscilla Auchincloss, Ph.D., RYT & Authorized Continuum Movement Teacher 

Drawing from some of the earliest known practices, this workshop uses the medium of sound to connect primordial (unformed) consciousness to thought and language. Both ancient and modern modalities contribute to restoring and rebuilding, step-by-step, the human capacity of listening. You will gain direct experience in the sensory effects of vocalization and of specific instruments (such as drum, wooden flute, singing bowls, gong, and tuning forks) in the body-mind, and you will discover how to integrate the crucial role of sound to deepen practice in yoga, movement and life. Designed for yoga practitioners, this workshop training is also ideal for persons interested in meditation and other movement modalities. 
$140 ($125 when you register by 4/23/16)
