UNWINDING the SPINE with Deane Juhan

The spine is the core and central axis of our physical being. Both in its roles for movement and for stable support, it is the key architectural element in ourbodies, around which all of the functions of our shoulders and arms, pelvic girdle, legs and neck and cranium are organized.  

Deep within the bony protection of the vertebrae, the spinal cord is the neural conduit between the brain and the rest of the body, through which all somatic sensation and all motor responses are filtered.  There is no organic function that is not profoundly affected by the spine’s postrual integrity or chronic contortions, and its freedom or restriction of movement. 


The spine is also the most complex structrue of our skeletal, muscular and connective tissue systems, held together and animated by twenty-five vertebrae, layer upon layer of ligaments, tendon anchors, literally hundreds of muscles. 

The remarkable coordination of all these elements is designed to provide both ease of mobility and continual support throughtout all anatomically possible ranges of movement, all combinations of slither and solidity.
Less happily, it is also one of our most common sorces of pain and restriction, and its ease of function is all too often compromised by our postrual distortions, our habitually limited repertoires of movement, and the strains and injuries we encouter in our active lives. 

Come and revitalize the sacred serpent of your kundalini, and enjoy an opportunity for significant developments in the breadth and vitality of the physical, energetic and conscious dimensions of your lives.  This work is a powerful addition to any bodyworker’s previous trainings and practice.

Deane Juhan may be best known as the author of Job’s Body: A Handbook for Bodywork an essential text on the means, methods, uses, and deeply personal applications of what has come to be known as “bodywork”  First trained in Esalen massage, he developed a private practice and led workshops in massage as well as seminars in anatomy and physiology for bodyworkers. In 1976 he met Dr. Milton Trager, founder of the Trager Institute for Psychophysical Integration, and has been a practitioner and instructor of the TRAGERWork approach ever since. He is on the faculty of the Northern California Trager Institute and has developed a series of workshops in dynamic anatomy and inTrager Bodywork for bodyworkers and therapists of all kinds, which he conducts all over the United States, in Canada and in Europe.http://www.jobsbody.com
