Please join Jator Pierre for a donation based series on the basics of the Chakra system.
This 2 part series will be based on Ancient Wisdom and Modern Science and how it relates to “healing” ourselves and helping to “heal” our clients. Together, we will be exploring the Chakra system in two separate seminars. The first will be focused on the Root and Sacral Chakras, the second will focus on the Solar Plexus Chakra and the Heart Chakra. We will dive into physical, emotional, and mental aspects of each Chakra, looking into the gland organs related, physical ailments and how the emotional and mental can create the physical reality. This seminar will also cover how to address some of these “issues” through visualization, meditation, and movement.
Seminar 2 Introduction to the Solar Plexus Chakra (Manipura) | Heart Chakra (Anahata)
Do you have stomach ulcers, fatigue, weight around stomach, allergies, diabetes, digestive issues, shallow breathing, high blood pressure, heart disease, or cancer? Do you feel that these “issues” could possibly be rooted in the emotional, mental or spiritual realms? In these basic introduction classes, we will explore the "Root/Sacral" and “Solar/Heart” chakras with a short overview of the “issues” related to these chakras and a movement session on moving energy through these areas, including visualizations, breathing techniques, and mantras/affirmations. This class will be mainly movement based because I believe there is more power in the experience than there is in the knowledge.
Whether you want to improve your athletic performance or overcome pain that limits your ability to function, Movement Lessons will help you to discover new possibilities, overcome obstacles, and improve your health. These lessons are based on the work of Anat Baniel and Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais and encourage participants to overcome habitual constraints that interfere with physical ease. Lessons aim to broaden mobility through a series of gentle, interconnected movements which reorganize the nervous system.

For several decades, Paul St. John and his colleagues have been studying posture; how the components of the human body affect posture, and how posture reflects the function of those components. This developing area has come to be known as Posturology, the science of human balance in every physiological condition. Research from Europe dating back to the days of Galileo to the present is included, along with Paul St. John’s extensive research, in this exciting new direction in pain relief therapy. In Posturology 101, pain relief specialist Paul St. John will guide you through the centuries from the earliest recorded studies of posture and imbalance to his most recent findings in his practice. He will share areas of pain causing dysfunctions that create imbalance. This application is the primary component in Integrative Neurosomatic Therapy. Our goal is to have you leave the course competent in the basic concepts and enlighten you on the importance of being able to measure and document posture accurately. Several examples of postural distortions will be given with their causes and subsequent treatment methods to allow you to understand the impact of this exciting new area of study. As an Integrative Neurosomatic Therapist your capacity to help patients in pain starts with your ability to measure, document, and interpret posture. This course is the first step in the journey to helping your clients heal fully.
