CPD Bones for Life with Marye Wyvill

Tutor: Marye WYVILL

Date: 18th March 2023

Time: 10:00 - 16:00

Location: North Romford Community Centre

Type of Event: CPD

Places Available: 25

I have experience of teaching both courses online. Feedback and participant numbers have been consistently good.
I have been a CPD provider for the BWY for over 15 years. My background in yoga includes 5 years' training at the Dharma Yoga Centre under the tutelege of Julie Friedeberger and Swami Dharmananda, and 4 years as resident and teacher at Mandala Yoga Ashram in Wales. I am also Co-Director of Movement Intelligence UK (see ).
Whilst aimed primarily at teachers who wish to integrate exercises designed to combat osteoporosis into their weekly classes, these courses could be of benefit to anyone who wishes to improve their posture and movement. 

Bones for Life overview: 
Bones for Life focuses on natural movement that can be enhanced in order to help develop the postural integrity, flexibility and stability that support strong bones. Its gentle exercises are designed to transform habitual patterns into ways of moving that can lead to what its originator, Ruthy Alon, calls a state of "biological optimism”. Bones for Life is suitable for people of all ages and abilities.
Whilst this course is aimed primarily at teachers who wish to integrate exercises designed to combat osteoporosis into their weekly classes, it could benefit anyone with an interest or concern in this field, or anyone who simply wants to improve their posture and movement

To introduce the background and methodology of Ruthy Alons Bones for Life programme
To demonstrate the two main options for the response of the spine to pressure
To explore safe posture for sustaining the dynamic movements that can build bone                         
To explore strategies for promoting uprightness and the body-language of gentle assertion
To look at evolutionary patterns of self-mobilization

Participants will learn practices which foster proportional articulation in all major joints
Participants will learn to reorganize the most vulnerable areas of the spine, ie neck and lumbar, in a passive and organically accepted way                                                                                                 Participants will enrich their movement vocabulary through learning a variety of ways to promote uprightness
Participants will experience how utilizing evolutionary patterns of movement can enhance the efficiency and economy of our own movement
