Workshop: Visceral Mobilisation through Movement
“A Squash and a Squeeze”
Part one: Liver, Stomach, Colon
Presented by two extraordinary practitioners and movement experts Liz Noad and Kerry Etkin, this very stimulating workshop explores how we can encourage mobilisation and release of the visceral organs through common movement practice.
Liz and Kerry combine to take you through easy-to-understand surface anatomy of the selected organs, the essential connections and movements they have, requirements for healthy movement and causes of visceral restrictions, paradigm shifts, contraindications and indications, simple movement testing and specific repertoire that movement teachers can use to help mobilise these organs. Using simulated props, participants are taken on a trip inside the body to understand how these organs relate to and benefit from specific movements, and working into repertoire examples that positively effect mobilisation of the viscera.
Further parts to this series will delve into other organs, although part one does reference various additional organs through their involvement with the liver, stomach and colon.
Liz and Kerry have a wealth of knowledge and experience with the ability to make such deep information accessible to Pilates and movement teachers for immediate inclusion in their teaching and self practice.
