End of May, Summer Growing
I’ll start by sharing my favorite yoga sutra teaching of the day: NAP. If you can, follow that urge for a siesta! The days are long, and especially with this full moon ablaze, sleeping may be shorter, waking earlier, days busier! Read on for more info on yoga retreats and siestas at Green Gulch :
In my last newsletter I mentioned writing more about Mayan Abdominal Massage this month. So, yes, that’s my belly. I’m funny about it, and was shocked when a midwife at an abdominal massage workshop I attended asked if she could photograph it for her website, impressed by the crescent shape of my stretch marks. My stretch marks, the remnants of my children’s home in my belly. Of course I love that mark, but what that weekend at the abdominal massage workshop really taught me was how much LIFE really moves and moves things around in the belly and how little we know or care for this territory day to day. In The Arvigo Techniques of Mayan Abdominal Therapy Practitioners training, we covered manual, herbal, and supportive therapies for all sorts of territory I hadn’t always associated with Mayan or Chinese abdominal massage: the back, the 3rd lumbar spine in particular, the sacrum in amazing detail, the coccyx, the pudendal nerve, sit bones, hip symmetry, manual adjustments to the back and legs, as well as all the great and relaxing massage work on the front of the body, the abdomen, pelvic bowl, diaphragm, major lymph sites, abdominal muscles, navel.
Got questions? I sure did, how do we really know what’s going on in there? Check out more info on Mayan Abdominal Massage HERE: https://www.arvigotherapy.com/content/faqs and come and find out for yourself. I love providing these abdominal massage sessions and teaching you the tools for self care! I’ll be working with family and fertility acupuncturists and specialists to share more of these wellness techniques in the Bay Area. Email me for more info.
