Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - The 2013 Organic Stretching Puerto Vallarta Weekend Workshop opens at Centro Inkarri Vallarta, Blvd Fco Medina Ascencio #1768 (across from Mega,) on Friday, January 25th.
Owner/instructor Pat Henry will present ten-hours of movements and guidance to unlock the restrictions people call "just getting old" - waking up stiff in the morning, having a problem with stairs, unable to raise an arm above the shoulder or head, giving up things they used to enjoy, and the limitations that accumulate from accidents, life style, and emotions over a lifetime.
Henry has taught students from 14 to 85 how to manage, liberate, and enjoy the bodies they live in today.
"Organic Stretching cuts through imitative discipline and opens the door to the celebration of your own idiosyncratic being and its expression - like no others - in your own joy of movement and self-development." (-from a review by Deane Juhan, author of Job's Body: A Handbook for Bodywork)
Henry developed the Organic Stretching program following her certification in the Wallace Method. She was convinced that the concepts embodied in Heather Wallace's amazing, on-the-table pain management therapy system could be molded into an individual program for self-healing, and she has accomplished that in her OS approach. She offers regular twice-weekly classes at her studio in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle and in Weekend Workshops here and in the US.
Students have responded to the changes they encountered and the class experience:
"I discovered I could actually move!"
"My body feels energized and comfortable like it felt 30 years ago."
"I developed carpal tunnel syndrome…the pain and discomfort has completely gone away"
"…amazing workshop! I loved it! My body loved it!"
Classes start on Friday, January 25th from 4 pm - 6 pm, through Saturday and Sunday, January 26th and 27th, 10 am - 12 pm and 1 pm - 3 pm. In a combination of discussion and lecture, practicing the movements and principles that guide the improvisational program, and experiencing the beginning of changes, students acquire the initial tools to work independently. The $140(US) price includes the DVD, Organic Stretching: Principles and Movements (value $37.50.) Discounts from 10% - 15% are available for early, prepaid registrations. Details and registration are available on the Organic Stretching website.Pat Henry
