Where's your head at!?

Where's your head at!?

Where our head is in space seems like a silly concept.. its on top of our shoulders of course, right?

Well .. Modern life as we know it has enticed our bodies into the most interesting and abnormal positions - the biggest one being where our head is located on our bodies. Technology, Office jobs and busy lifestyles have literally knocked us off centre, resulting in all sorts of things like fatigue, headaches and a lack of concentration. When our head and neck alignment is imbalanced over a long period of time, it can throw off some of the body’s most important balancing and restoring systems! 

Lets spend an evening finding out what these are and where our heads are at ! 

What to expect : 
- Find our how much does your head actually weighs
-Learn simple techniques to balance your longest cranial nerve, and increase your vagal tone, stimulating your parasympathetic nervous system (rest & digest).
- Find out where your head sits in space, your postural tendencies and how to break old patterns.
- Reset your body’s movement patterns with crawling, skating, yoga, and dancing! 
- Many tasty treats

Why would this workshop be important to you ?
You will learn tools to be set up in your body to age gracefully with less tension and more freedom. 

Investment : $20 + booking fee
