"Come in, lie down, do nothing"
Our training day starts with semi-supine, a practical procedure that encourages deep release of long held tension patterns and reorganization of postural support. It is an active process although from the outside it looks simple, it is an exploration of Use and Functioning; and it's a wonderful way to start the learning day.
