Workshop: Body Intelligence with Bibiana Badenes

Workshop: Body Intelligence with Bibiana Badenes

By combining the latest scientific research and more than 30 years of practice in bodywork, physical therapist, Rolfing® and movement education, Bibiana Badenes will give you a body roadmap for you to easily find greater health and joy within your body and your life. She will guide you through exercises that help you listen to your own innate body intelligence—the subtle and not-so-subtle signals that your body uses to communicate with you. When we listen to our body intelligence and enter into the right relationship with ourselves, we have the foundation to cultivate the right relationship with others and with the natural world.
 
Body Intelligence will give you the ability to notice body sensations, listen to them, then respond in a way that respects the body’s needs, so enhancing your quality of life.
