Massage wakes our bodies' innate ability to heal itself by reconnecting our consciousness to corporal awareness. Our bodies are the physical manifestations of our reactions to our thoughts, emotion, and actions. Massage is a powerful tool to help the body process stress and return positive sensations into dysfunctional areas.
Deep tissue massage can be an intense experience on both a physical and emotional level. The work is intuitively guided, taking muscles to the point of resistance with firm yet gentle pressure to release myofascial adhesions. A Fauna Massage focuses on the fascial lines of the body, muscular connections, and treating the individual as whole.
Fauna’s view of the body, anatomy and life has been deeply influenced and inspired by working in the dissection lab with her favorite teacher Dr. Gil Hedley. By exploring inner spaces she has been able to experience the beauty and complexity of the human form in ways books cannot teach.
Yoga asana is a systematic way to strengthen and mobilize the body and breath so that good posture can be easily maintained in all activities, thus leading to fewer injuries and better performance. Ashtanga yoga is a dynamic series of asana first taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, please visit www.kpjayi.org for more information about the practice and tradition. Fauna leads a Mysore Ashtanga yoga program at 8th Street Studio in the Elizabeth neighborhood. Mysore style practice is for everyone, from brand new yogi to experienced practitioner. Mysore Ashtanga yoga offers the benefit of private instruction and personal modification with the power of a group dynamic.
Fauna also leads yoga anatomy workshops, and offers private yoga instruction for small groups or individuals. For the details on how to practice with Fauna visit http://www.themysorelab.com.
