with Desi Springer & John Friend

This is a 10-hour introductory workshop for the Bowspring – a new approach for functional posture for all levels of students – beginners to yoga teachers and fitness instructors – are welcomed to experience the transformative and therapeutic power of the Bowspring.

The Bowspring is a curvy shape of readiness, which brings lightness and openness to any position. In this weekend workshop, students will learn how to make any movement or common posture like standing, sitting, or walking, fluid and dynamically powerful for optimal functionality and radiant health.

The Bowspring is a universal postural template that optimizes any movement — yoga, athletics, or simply moving around in our daily life—for greater lightness, agility, ease, and power. This dynamic alignment method is also highly therapeutic for any musculo-skeletal issues including lower back problems, hip pain, knee or shoulder injuries.

This workshop is composed of 5 classes that progressively lead students of all levels though the most basic forms and movements of this dynamic postural method.

In each class, students will be taught katas - set sequences of simple, repeated movements which will unveil their unconscious postural patterns. With new awareness of our habitual body language through an increased postural presence, we can bring increasing balance to our mind-health health. With this new postural technology, we gain the freedom to choose a healthier, more positive body language that we communicate not only to others, but to the deepest part of ourselves.

Students will learn about the 10 universal postural tendencies which unconsciously draw us toward a closed posture throughout our normal day. The Bowspring method integrates a mindfulness training with the cultivation of compassion and accountability to help us create our own individual destiny. In this weekend, you can gain a transformative shift in self-knowing, which can reveal a path toward harmony and long-term health. The Bowspring is movement medicine which cleanses fear and bolsters courage.

Desi and John will help each student learn the Bowspring considering everyone’s unique alignment and particular limitations. The most basic elemental forms of the Bowspring system will be presented along with dynamic postures within the Level 1 Syllabus.

Through the Bowspring practice students can expect to cultivate increased:

- Self-awareness, sensory perception and mental focus
- Compassion, patience, and self-respect
- Inner strength and courage to look at their unconscious mind-body habitual patterns
- Stress management and control of nervous system reactivity
- Inner confidence and self-respect
- Uniform muscle tone on all parts of the body
- Tapering waistline and mounded glutes
- Lightness, agility, springy power
