Gary Lee Williams will be coming from NY to teach this brilliant class he created.  Using gravity in a standing position learn quick, effective and easy techniques for the spine. As well as the vertical techniques he created, Gary will be teaching indirect techniques that impact the spine through indriect routes and strategies.  All techniques are done standing.  You will learn to work with the lumbar, thoracic and cervical segments of the spine as well as the ribcage, psoas, quadratus lumborum, piriformis, solar plexis, sacrum, sternum shoulders and other related parts of the body.  Learn to work smarter, not harder.  Gary's teaching style is warm, clear and dynamic.  The techniques from this class easily become self care, home exercises for clients or fun quick demos at gatherings!

Exploration of Movement is a great first class and in important piece of Ortho-Bionomy training.  In this class students will learn and apply the Ortho-Bionomy principles of following comfort and exaggerating imbalance while learning techniques for the whole body.  'Exploration' will improve palpation and sensing skills while providing a practical way to apply what you discover to support the body to find balance. This class is less technical then 'Spine' or 'Extremities', and creates a bridge to more subtle advanced levels of Ortho-Bionomy.   This class is known for being fun!
