Program Details

For everyone.

Collagen—the molecule of connective tissue structure—is the most abundant protein in the body and forms a living matrix that unites all our tissues into a functional organism. In addition to its structural role, connective tissue conducts and produces energy and serves as an exquisitely sensitive antenna that aids the nervous system in perceiving our interior and exterior worlds.

Through slides, lecture, and discussion, this workshop examines the anatomical and physiological functions of connective tissue, and demonstrates its manipulation and treatment through guided movement exercises, as well as instruction and practice on the table. Deane Juhan’s innovative Resistance and Release Work provides a rapid, lasting way to develop more effective muscular and connective tissue movement by eliminating chronic restrictions and learning new patterns of movement that better serve us.

This workshop is invaluable for massage therapists, movement therapists, dancers, athletes, yoga practitioners and teachers, people rehabilitating from injuries or working to avoid them, and those seeking to feel more vital and alive. Everyone leaves with a better-functioning body and many new tools to use in their practice.

Recommended reading Deane Juhan, Job’s Body: A Handbook for Bodywork (Station Hill Press), Chapter 3 and pages 558–563.

Note Bring light, loose clothing for movement and table work.
