About the Workshop:

The Topf Technique is an experiential approach which incorporates the process of direct observation and sensation of skeletal structures to reveal the body’s natural instinct for centered alignment. We use specific anatomical imagery as maps guiding us in the exploration of our bodies. We will observe and feel the movement of the breath, allowing it to open pathways into balancing, centering and sensing the multi-directionality of the ribcage and connecting the action of the diaphragm to deep spinal support. 

This workshop is designed for anyone interested in freeing the body from inhibitive movement patterns, developing creativity, cultivating presence, and learning tools to help with injury prevention and recovery. This work is of special value to performers, artists, yogis, fitness professionals, therapists and body workers. Co-taught by Lise Brenner, Jen Harmon and Jaime Ortega, each day will include 4 hours of theory, technique, hands-on work and improvisation.
