Body-Mind Centering Workshop

Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen and Tanya Fitzpatrick

This Bank Holiday Monday Andrea attended to the Body-Mind Centering workshop with Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen in Dún Laoghaire .
 "We got to play with our toes for most part of the morning (hey, my favorite!). The very knowledgeable, graceful Bonnie led us into Janu Sirs Asana (seated head to knee posture). As it usually is, my left side was harder and less flexible that my right side when bending forwards. Then Bonnie got us to slowly and thoroughly massage our feet, toe by toe, relax the ankles and repeat Janu Sirs Asana, while teaching us about the anatomy of the feet. What an amazing difference that was! There was less strain to get deep into the pose, hips! and legs! seemed softer and the difference between left and right far less pronounced. I did the foot massage yesterday and this morning before Asana practice, glad to have been shown another little bit of the workings and not-so-well-workings of the mosaic that is my body."
