Sunday, December 4, 12:30-5:30PM

Tuition $45

Shanti Meditation Hall, Pilot, Virginia

MORE DETAILS

We are a tidal creature, born out of the ocean with its rhythms and multi-directional movement. We are fluid and elemental by design.  We need the long exhale after the long inhale, that balance of movement and stillness, action and rest, extrinsic focus and intrinsic emptiness.  To rediscover how to self regulate begins with slowing down, becoming quiet and listening. It begins with an inquiry into whole-heartedness.

To move freely and with ease is a life-long necessity. Enhanced mobility and motility increase not only our comfort and pleasure in moving, but also improve organ function and bone strength, boost the immune system and nourish the nervous system. This class focuses on opening and hydrating the connective tissue, which reduces chronic pain and stiffness. It is based in inquiry, discovery and exploration, therefore cultivating a renewed capacity for self regulation. It is the perfect antidote to sitting too much as well as reducing ongoing stress.  Using tools designed to gently open and release the myofascial tissue, your whole organism will be taken to deeper levels of embodiment, peace and well-being.

Continuum is a self-directed somatic practice grounded in breath, felt sensation, attention, movement and sound/vibration. Through the wide aperture of this innovative approach to embodiment, fuller incarnation is made possible.

Ours is a world in flux and flame, in continuous metamorphosis and on fire with evolutionary purposiveness. We are being challenged to perceive ourselves afresh, to open our minds and live into curiosity.  Amidst roiling sea change, where learning to adapt to constant movement of surface to depths, opens capacities we need and perhaps didn’t even know we had. Continuum cultivates the art of engagement, our abiding willingness and skill to be in the experience; an encompassing embodiment; a wide view into realms unknown.

Our Resonant Body ~ An Introduction to Continuum

Resonance is the living language of the Universe. All bodies that experience being relate through a field of resonance, creating a highly dynamic expression and way of relating. When we open our resonant capacity, we deepen into the field, expanding into new dimensions of interiority and mutualism.

MORE DETAILS

A shift in the interior landscape of one’s body will reconfigure the landscape of one’s life. Each of us has a deeply personal reference point that defines how we perceive reality, as well as how we think, move, and relate. When we cultivate a receptive, adaptable, fluid body, we meet ourselves with love and compassion. And when this becomes our lived experience, we transform the landscape of the world. At this time, many of us are feeling the pull into a new reference point, one that allows us a broader, more encompassing view and invites new horizons of being.

Resonance is the living language of the Universe. All bodies that experience being relate through a field of resonance, creating a highly dynamic expression and way of relating. When we open our resonant capacity, we deepen into the field, expanding into new dimensions of interiority and mutualism.

Continuum is a self-directed, cumulative practice done either alone or in groups. Slow, subtle movement serves as a conscious guide into layers of becoming and belonging, an opening into eros and oneness. Sound, the felt sense of vibration, merges with movement in an alchemy of sublime embodiment, allowing for an ever-deepening sense of ensoulment. Integration, wholeness, empathy and spaciousness arrive as a new sense of self emerges and flows through. Continuum opens a portal that shifts perception and thus our experience of reality, allowing us to slowly awaken to fuller dimensions of love and presence.

MORE DETAILS

Our future dawns before our eyes and our hearts. Together, we stand at a precipice; a world dissolving as a new world is being born. In this liminal portal, we find ourselves making our way out of a familiar and known orientation and into a new and unknown orientation. For many of us, this is a confusing and terrifying gauntlet of change. How do we shift from resistance and rigidity to flow and flexibility, from the predictable and mechanistic to the unpredictable and metamorphic? We are all participants in this creation of what is to be.

Perhaps some of these questions are relevant to your personal experience; Are you feeling unhinged from linear time? Are the structures of the life you’ve known fracturing, disappearing, falling away? Do you feel at home in your own skin? Are you feeling too much too fast? Are you experiencing a sense of not belonging? Do you have a sense of not quite knowing yourself anymore? Are you perceiving a call to make changes, move forward, but have no idea how or where to begin?

I am ready to help guide you through the overwhelm of our ever-complexifying life experience into a centered alignment within yourself. Discovering and reinforcing this alignment shifts the overwhelm into flow and resilience. Learning to move in and through the dynamic range of changes and unexpected situations that arise creates the pathway for dancing with unpredictable outcomes. As a personal way-shower, I support you in reinforcing and anchoring the deep midline of one’s true self to clear out and parse through the old and outdated, creating space for the next and new. Together, we unveil the potential to allow for context regeneration, inviting in fierce grace for a fearless future.

I am a maven, a pathfinder, a mentor of the you buried under by cultural demands and identity constructs that no longer serve. This threshold phase of expansion and acceleration is a golden window of opportunity for re-worthing and re-valuing your personal gifts, talents, passions and strengths as a course correct into authentic expression as well as being of service to our larger collective. I guide and support the growing bud of innate intuition emerging from your essential self.

Embodied Astrology

Bringing a fresh understanding of Astrology into a Living Process

Astrology sessions ~

1.5 hours $135

2 hours $175

All sessions are on Zoom and recorded.

MORE DETAILS

My orientation to the Stars is as living beings with which we are intimately engaged. The planets and the constellations are an outer reflection of an inner process. When we bring a subjective view to the constant movements above, we can track those dynamics within our own felt sense experience. Working with the planets, points and Zodiac inside an embodied template, we allow the mental objectifying to transform, leaving us reconfigured as the cosmological and universal process we truly are. Our understanding of the Astrological information is metabolized by both mind and body, supporting and defining our distinct and individual spirit work.

MORE DETAILS

For thousands of years we have studied the heavens, tracking the movements of stars and planets as a way to reach into the macrocosm and make meaning of our human experience. The constantly changing geometry of the night sky offers us a personal reflection, a way of placing ourselves in time/space and the ongoing evolution of cycles within cycles.

Astrology is an ancient and evolving art of mapping and interpreting the relationship with and felt experience of the movements of heavenly bodies as they interact with us individually and collectively. We are a living cosmic dance, expressing in and through the many dimensions of reality - learning, growing and evolving as one universal symphony. The twelve zodiac archetypes reflect the complexity and multivalent nature of this choreography.

In this course, we will explore and discover the universe within, mapping our own cosmic body. Each class, on the first Saturday of the month, will explore the astrological themes and highlights of the current month, attuning each of us to the energies influencing our personal lives and the global collective. These themes will then be woven into a Dive - a non verbal, somatic experience of these cosmological energies. Diving below cognition and critical thinking, we tap the intuitive body wisdom inherent in the language of movement and sound.

Continuum is a self-directed somatic practice grounded in breath, felt sensation, attention, movement and sound/vibration. Through the wide aperture of this innovative approach to embodiment, fuller incarnation is made possible. The landscape of the body becomes the skyscape of the stars. Outer reflects inner and inner reflects outer. It is here where eternity meets time, where form meets emptiness, where earth and heaven are One.

This online course meets once a month for a full year. Classes will meet on the first Saturdays of the month from 11am – 2pm EST (dates listed below). Each class will contain content, experiential practice ( a dive, meditation ) and Q/A. All classes offered on Zoom, recorded and downloaded to Dropbox.

Tuition for the full year course: $369; can be paid in full or 2 or 3 installments. Register directly with Sabine at: sabine@resonantbody.com

My yoga classes integrate the language of asana with my knowledge of anatomy, physiology, biology, kinesiology, movement fundamentals, breath practices, perceptual and attention practices and meditation.

Yoga is a language of movement that opens the body and breath. When practiced regularly, it transforms our whole being by generating ease of movement, calmness and a quiet mind. It brings us home to ourselves, cultivates a listening within, and leaves us resting in the temple of our infinite self.

I fell in love with yoga in the 1980s. As a dancer, I found the focus on breathing, the shapes that helped my spine stay supple and the intention of moving into stillness nourishing and captivating. I became a Certified Yoga Teacher in 1997 under the guidance and teachings of Erich Schiffman. I went on to study Vinyasa Flow and Fluid Dynamics with Shiva Rea, Restorative and Prenatal yoga with Judith Lassiter.

Somatic studies have been my life’s passion. My yoga classes integrate the language of asana with my knowledge of anatomy, physiology, biology, kinesiology, movement fundamentals, breath practices, perceptual and attention practices and meditation. Resonant Body Movement™ informs my classes with fluid movement and a emphasis on the subtle energetics. My intention in every class is to bring students through a multidimensional experience that leaves them feeling more spacious, more grounded, more alive.

My Essential Yoga classes combine standing and seated poses with some vinyasa, pranayama and meditation.  Deep stretch is practiced in seated and supine oriented asana. Restorative yoga is the deep down rest, using props to support the body in different shapes and opening from the inside out with the breath. This practice is for the nervous system, a potent balm for the speed of modern life.

My new class, Fluid Anatomy Yoga, is a leap into the freeform dimension of yoga. Considered to be the advanced yoga practice, this class begins with guided asana and transitions to a self guided exploration and free form inquiry, moment to moment. The structure of the asana evolves into a fluid dynamic that is both nourishing and enlivening, moving beyond the form of asana.
