Here’s one to put on your calendar. Yamuna Zake is leading her first Body School at The Body Holiday in St. Lucia. If you haven’t heard of Yamuna, this is a good day. She created a program for movement that focuses on proper alignment. Her goal is to teach her students body sustainability. I have taken her classes. They will change your body and your relationship to your body. You start by focusing on your feet with a special ball called a “foot saver,” and soon realize how much we all neglect two of the most important things we rely on every single day. I’ve met women in their seventies who were able to avoid hip, knee, and back surgery by practicing the various methods she teaches in her classes. It works! The basic method involves small, medium and large balls that you use to target different areas of your body. (Have a look at the photo above.) This falls under the genre of methods of movement that engage your deep faschia, the connective tissue that attaches different muscles and organs. When you engage faschia, you release trapped physical and, many believe, emotional energy. The result? You can expand and lengthen rather than contract.
And what better place to expand than in stunning St. Lucia with none other than Yamuna teaching you how herself? Dates are April 26th – May 1st, 2017.
