Stomach and Liver Stretching to Improve Breath and Movement: A Franklin Method® Workshop
Friday, February 27th, 10:00 – 11:30 am | Free!
The stomach and liver are positioned just below the lungs and diaphragm, and as such are on the front line when it comes to being moved by the breath. But what if breathing isn’t going so well for you? What if you’re spending too many hours slumped in an office chair, or driving around in traffic; what if you’re feeling anxious and guarded, like you’re holding yourself together, or holding yourself in, with barely a chance to breathe? If that’s the case, your stomach and liver are going to miss out on their dance, and when our organs don’t get to move, they start to feel heavier. Without good movement, it gets harder for the organs to do their jobs, jobs which are very important for our health and well-being.
The good news is that it is very easy to learn the rhythms of healthy movement for the stomach and liver, and this movement will have an immediate and positive effect on your breath, posture, sense of calm and well-being, and digestion. In this workshop, we’ll learn about the location of the stomach and liver, and how the organs move in the respiratory cycle and in every day movement such as walking.
This workshop is open to all adults, singers or non-singers (in other words, I’m not going to make anyone sing in this workshop, which is not usually the case).
