ORGANIC STRETCHING® WORKSHOPS
A ten-hour Weekend Workshop leads you into the Organic Stretching Seven Step program, inspiring you to find the body you used to live in.
ARE YOU LOOKING FOR: A different approach to movement and stretching? What have you stopped doing because your body says it can’t do it any more? Through building awareness from the inside out we connect with the places that are holding us back and gradually soften the restrictions and blocks, gently and deeply, bringing back a freedom of movement we never expected to see again.
AN ORGANIC STRETCHING WORKSHOP WILL: Introduce you to your personal healing power, give your body tools to create your own movements, show you how to work with the body you now have and gradually take it where you want it to be.
Meet Antoinette from the Santa Cruz workshop last summer:
Antoinette began with 5-1/2″ from her index finger to the corner of her mouth, and 6 hours later her right shoulder and neck had released enough to bring her index finger to only 2-1/2″ from her mouth. You can see that her elbow has moved way behind her head without pain. She was thrilled!!! As were others with amazing results.
“…the wonderful feeling of getting so in touch with my body.” –Tamara
“Pat!!! You have wonderful personal energy, the pacing of activity and information sharing was excellent. I loved the idea of presenting principles rather than strict following of pose. The content was simple and at the same time offered excellent guidelines for deeper practice. Sometimes we just need permission to reconnect with the universe of our own bodies, and, Pat, you did a great job of helping us do that. Thank you! ” –Peg
Sailors at sea have special needs and limitations for taking care of their own health. Often a thousand miles or more from health care, they must rely on their own resources. Pat Henry teaches these workshops from the personal experience of 80,000 miles at sea, 40,000 of those solo.
Are you living the dream you envisioned when you let the dock lines go?
Living and traveling in small, bouncy spaces with sudden demands on your body may not have been what you envisioned when you set out with dreams of sandy beaches and your boat calmly riding at anchor. This lifestyle throws some surprises your way and calls for a special approach to fitness with movements that…
- Fit in small spaces
- Require no equipment
- Can be done in short periods of time almost anywhere onboard
- Are adaptable to you, your space, your needs and your ability
Stretching® at Sea is:
- A first aid tool to relieve injuries, strains and repeat motion stress
- A path to move confidently with improved balance
- A meditation in movement to reduce tension, restore inner peace and develop fluid, healthy joints
With six hours of focused work using a combination of practicing the principles and movements of Organic Stretching®…independently and following Henry…and lecture/discussion, participants can begin to develop a personal practice that fits in their own boat spaces. The program includes the OS video and guides for personal work.
Workshops are generally scheduled in the Spring in Pat’s studio in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle when the temporary cruising community is preparing for their departures. This workshop is available for other communities by arrangement; contact Pat.
“If I knew then what I know now, my around-the-world solo voyage would have been quite different. Injuries might have been reduced and they certainly would have healed more quickly. My balance would have been better, also my agility and my resilience.” –Pat Henry
