Dancing for Healing & Bodywork

Developing an Extraordinary Port-De-Bras

For Beautiful Lines and Fun

I am offering these exercises because your compromised postures are haunting my dreams. These subtle but precise movements are coming from the unmatched tradition of the Classical Russian Ballet.

Once learned to be performed correctly, they:

  • Will allow you to gain postural control in a short time.
  • Will serve as a cardio-vascular conditioning
  • Will increase extension, produce beautiful lines, and develop extraordinary port de bras.
  • Are perfectly easy done few minutes before breakfast

After this class, you'll never be able to slouch your back, even if you want to.

* Port de Bras (Fr. for upper-mid-back) is what is so, soooo in need of being reeducated and reintegrated in your postural patterns.

Every 2nd Tuesday of the month at 7:00 pm

The Dynamic Postural Control through tango Walk

The class will start with:

  • Self-Myo-fascial release techniques for lower extremities
  • static stretching
  • breathing meditation
  • review of Port-De-Bras postures
  • Tango dance demo from Memphis Argentine Tango Society

all of the above - no longer than 15min

  • Practicing the Tango walk 30 min
  • Focused breath meditation
  • dynamic stretching 5-10 min

Practicing the Tango sequence of the different gait phases will prepare the lower part of the body to wear the Middle-Upper-Back like $1,000,000 suit.

The benefits for you from this work-out range in:

  • reducing low back pain through reestablishing the pelvis- lower back connection
  • relieving the neck muscles from having to compensate for the insufficient lower body motor control
  • better balance and coordination
  • integration of your Gluteal muscles BACK in the walking business (instead of just "sagging in there")
  • training the muscles of lower extremities and pelvic Girdle to WORK IN CONCERT
  • wakening of your muscle tissue memory for proper function
  • GAINING DYNAMIC CONTROL over your Posture - through automatizing the transition between concentric, isometric and eccentric muscle contractions
  • reeducating your brain in the GAIT PATTERN of:
    • a tanguero
    • or a Cat
    • or a Bengali tiger
    • The Girl from Ipanema
    • Crocodile Dundee
  • no more feeling like "The great Imposture" (ctn. JimMcGee) at any party
  • feeling like $1,000,000

CAN YOU DO THESE MOVEMENTS?- Yes, and I will be there providing the CONTROLLED and SAFE ENVIRONMENT for your muscles and their lost memory for healthy function.

Practicing this walk for 5 min a day is all I am asking you for.
