LiquidBody blends mindful movement and stillness for softening, strengthening for function and form. Explore simple movement, breathing, myofascial release, stretching and strengthening techniques for treating and connecting with yourself. This self treatment/movement session is a fusion of the principles of John F. Barnes' Myofascial Release Approach, qigong, pilates, yin yoga and our developmental and functional movement patterns.

Remodel your fascia by simulating the effects of myofascial release with compression and decompression techniques using foam rollers, balls, resistance bands, yoga props and various self myofascial release tools therapeutically. Connect your mind, body and soul through awareness, breath and movement. Lift and lower your own weight while changing shape and levels on all planes from the ground to standing.

Rediscover the art and science of communicating with the languages of the body. Develop your body's feeling intelligence.

Reconnect with movement, touch, awareness, sound, posture, breath and love as medicines that heal naturally.
