Class Name: Posture and Post Techniques
Subtitle: Co-teach with Liz Olivas
Instructor Name: Morel Stackhouse
Start Date: 2/3/2018
End Date: 2/4/2018
Location: Deerfield Beach
State/Country: FL
Class Description: Posture is how we live in our bodies - the sum total of everything that has happened during our lives and how we felt about it. In addition, our posture holds the potential for everything we can become. These habits of use have a profound affect on patterns of musculoskeletal tension within the body. In this class we will explore various postural patterns and their affect on spinal balance. You will learn: • Techniques and exercises for promoting balanced posture within your own body, as well as for working with clients. • Techniques to work with spinal curvatures and scoliosis. • Post-techniques for the pelvis, spine and ribcage. Post Techniques exercise the spine and the intervertebral disks. They can be used for both assessment and release, as well as integration of the work done in a session. “If you don’t work with your clients posture, they will never get better” - Arthur Lincoln Pauls, D.O., Founder of Ortho-Bionomy What others have said about this course: “All of what I learned can be applied to my massage practice and personal health.” “It will extend the life of the work with my clients.” “Morel does a great job of relaying a lot of information in a short time in an enjoyable manner.”

Start Date: 7/14/2018
End Date: 7/15/2018

Class Description: This class looks at the Biological Model of Trauma, how trauma affects people, and how practitioners of therapeutic bodywork can most effectively work with individuals who are affected by trauma in ways that support their healing process. Participants will learn about the neurological basis of trauma in the autonomic nervous system and how to recognize signs of trauma in their clients. We will explore Trauma Resourcing in depth: specific verbal and energetic approaches as well as bodywork techniques for working with trauma-based dysfunction in the body. We will learn to work with various types of scar tissue, adhesions, broken bones, implanted hardware and prosthesis. Ways to support clients before, during and after surgery will be discussed.

Class Name: Phase 5
Subtitle:
Instructor Name: Morel Stackhouse
Start Date: 4/7/2018
End Date: 4/8/2018
Location: TRS Professional Suites, 40 Exchange Place, 3rd floor, Rm. 1, NYC
State/Country: NY
Class Description: The focus of Phase Five is to move to a more subtle level of awareness of the practice and principle of Ortho-Bionomy. Specific techniques develop and increase the student's understanding and proprioceptive sensitivity to the self-corrective movements initiated by the client. Through the practice of observing, following and supporting subtle movement patterns, muscular tension is released, range of motion is increased and pain is reduced. In Phase Five, students are encouraged to do less and let the client be the guide for his/her exploration of change.
