Stillness Through Movement consists of supported poses, breath awareness techniques, meditation (training the mind in openness and kindness) and vibrational medicine. The technique helps restore the body/Mind connection. Stillness through movement is a process where one learns to align with ones true nature- consciousness. Through Breath and Mind Awareness one is able to let go deeply, allowing the body and mind to receive the benefits of the restorative pose, bringing the body/mind back to its natural state of peace and contentment.Without this awareness one lives in a permanent state of unease, when you practice in this way we begin to align with the natural flow of life.
With the use of aromatherapy and flower/Shell essences, one can relax and let go with more ease.The parasympathetic nervous system is activated during Stillness Through Movement. The PSNS is responsible for balancing the body and bringing its response system back into equilibrium. STM takes the spine and nervous system out of the “Flight, Fight OR freeze’ response, relaxing and calming the adrenal glands.
To do this props and heavy weighted blankets are used to support the body so no strain occurs and the body can deeply relax. Postures can be held anywhere from 2mins up to 30mins.
In doing this we are sending gentle messages to the body to relax and move toward balance.
Some poses target a certain area where others have an overall benefit. All create specific physiological responses which are beneficial to health and can reduce the effects of stress related conditions. So in general this restorative practice is great for those times when one feels weak, fatigued, anxious or stressed from day to day activities.
This practice is especially beneficial for those times before, during and after major life transitions like; death of a loved one, change of job, pregnancy, fertility, hormonal changes, marriage, new baby, children leaving home, divorce or adrenal burnout. You can also practice when ill or recovering from an illness or injury.
Great for re-balancing hormones in women who have PMS/PMD, puberty, menstruating and menopause, and for men with hormone imbalance as well.
What’s so unique about STM Therapy is that you need no experienced, as the practice will meet you exactly where you are at and can guide you with where you need to go!
STM Therapy is ideal for men and women to help balance mental, emotional and physical well being.
This practice is held on the floor and also on massage tables, depending on the style of class being offered. When there is more energy medicine being offered we are on the tables and when we are working more with the postures, breath, gentle strokes and holds, we work more from the floor.
Personally I found this practice to be the most supportive tool for this modern society, where stress unfortunately is a daily part of humans lives. I have had major events that have happened in my own life and without this practice I would have been truly lost.
