Breath + Bones + Gravity; Bringing The Skeleton, To Life | Phil Greenfield

In this short, experiential workshop, I’ll be drawing on practices and principles from Chinese Internal Martial Arts, as well as ideas from Zero Balancing bodywork and my observations from twenty five years as a bodywork therapist, in order to explore the relationship that we have with our own skeleton, during standing, sitting, and walking, with particular reference to...

.. health and wellbeing
.. the cultivation of resilience in the face of life’s challenges
.. longevity
.. the subject of ‘self-defence’

We'll also be considering the role played by the brain and the nervous system in both chronic stress, and recuperative rest, and examine how cultivating awareness of skeletal support and the manner in which we breathe might aid us in our attempts to navigate the challenges of life.

By way of solo and partner work, I’ll be offering out some simple foundational practices that have the potential to enhance, and bring ease to both your daily activities, and to your training experience, whatever shape that takes.

• What should I bring? Curiosity
• What should I wear? Loose and layers.
• How many places available? Thirty or so.
• Payment? Donation. Via the HonestyBox. Pay on the day, whatever you feel the workshop has been worth to you. 

If you’d like to come along, then tag yourself as 'Going' on this facebook event or e-mail me at... zbphil@btinternet.com

If you'd like a heads-up for future B&B&G dates, tag yourself as 'Interested' on the facebook event Page and I'll keep you posted.

Your First Ring MuscleUp: A Micro-workshop with Free The Frame[David Eriksson] + Andy Myers

In 90 mins you can learn everything you need to know about the Ring MuscleUp

More importantly you can avoid learning stuff you don't need to waste your time on. It's really simple and straight forward.

Complete beginner nowhere near a MuscleUp?
Close to achieving it but can't quite... yet?

AWESOME! Because the MuscleUp deconstructed (which is how we learn it as a skill and also how we build it as a strength) looks like this

  • Upper Body Pulling (Hanging, Rows, Chin ups, Pull Ups)

  • Upper Body Pushing (Supports, Pushups, Dips)

  • Shoulder Strength/Health (Range of Motion in Extension, Stability

  • Wrist/Forearm Health (Flexibility to offset desk job life)

  • Elbow Health (Programming and Principles)

  • Zero Direct Core work (because you don't need it)

 

The value here is to realise that it IS achievable and this is your map and tools!

If you're close we'll most likely get you there on the day. If not we'll provide you what you need to get it in the quickest time possible on an individual basis

 

David heads back to Sweden the day after, so this is our last chance to learn from the Swedish Snow Leopard himself

Repatterning Stretching Masterclass with Frederik Beck

Repatterning Stretching Masterclass with Frederik Beck

We're delighted to be hosting the wonderful Frederik Beck for this 4+ hour Masterclass in the Repatterning Stretching

ABOUT

Foremost this masterclass seeks to give the attendee a practical and accessible immersion in Repatterning Stretching

Repatterning Stretching principally takes the form of partner-assisted stretches. The goal is to increase sensation and awareness concurrently with gaining flexibility. Stretches are practiced with specific cues and intention that allow us to go deeper into range of motion.

Our structure has adapted to the way that we use it. It is patterned. Conversely, by deliberately working with our body in a different and friendly manner we have a chance to put something more adaptable in it's place. As a practice this allows us to release and reawaken physical structures.

The potent 'Unfoetalling' syllabus will be explored; the work on counteracting the stresses of gravity and being desk-bound. this syllabus is particularly important in this day and age.

There is further room to adapt the class to the demands of the attendees, if a particular subject warrants exploration.

This class is open to all, regardless of training history and experience

AM Fitness Members receive 10% discount - If you are a member and haven't been sent the discount code please get in touch.

ABOUT FREDERIK:

20180222_181828.jpg

I am qualified as a medical doctor. Seeing the direction of medicine, I decided that my energy would be better used elsewhere. Following this, I spent two formative years in Australia completing and apprenticeship with Dave Wardman of Physical Alchemy. I am now the 'European Branch' of Physical Alchemy.

Physical Alchemy is chiefly concerned with the removal of patterns; Postural, Gestural, Habitual. Stretching is used to work upon these patterns. Awareness and intent are two key qualities.

I couple the work upon patterns with work to increase and build physical capacity; strength, power.

The goal is to elicit a harmonious and balanced whole

Zero Balancing Workshop

Zero Balancing Workshop

4 Day Zero Balancing Workshop
with Phil Greenfield


We are delighted to be hosting Phil Greenfield, author of Unravelling - Letting Go, Getting Well , for another 4-day Zero Balancing Workshop this coming April 28th-May 1st


When you boil it all down - all the searching and the striving - what is it that people are actually looking for? They’re looking to feel more at ease inside their own skin.
— Phil Greenfield

About Zero Balancing

Zero Balancing is an elegant and effortless table-based body therapy system, whose simplicity belies its potency. During a Zero Balancing session, the practitioner, using touch that is targeted specifically toward the bones of the skeleton, gently engages the person at the very deepest of levels of their physical being. Holding these ‘fulcrums’ in stillness, just for a few seconds, offers both multiple and global opportunities for the person to 'let go' of subtle patterning within their internal neuromuscular environment, creating the possibility of reorienting themselves around a new sense of safety, security, freedom and opportunity.

Receiving ZB sessions is regularly reported to improve mobility, and reduce pain, stiffness, and discomfort. It can also facilitate subtle changes for people that they often describe as being ‘way under their radar’ - a dissolving of restriction in the deepest reaches of their body that they were not previously aware of. Many who receive Zero Balancing talk of attaining a progressively greater degree of calmness and mental clarity, as well as positive outcomes on the emotional level, and generally feeling significantly 'changed for the better'. Better able to cope with life’s unpredictabilities.

In this Core Zero Balancing workshop, we'll learn the manual skills necessary to help facilitate such changes for our clients, as well as examining the mechanisms and principles that lie behind the work. We'll also see how we can apply these principles for the benefit of our own wellbeing. Practically, at the end of the four days you’ll have enough familiarity with the basic Zero Balancing hands-on protocol to enable you to go and explore ZB’s potential for yourself, and evaluate its usefulness to your own practice, and for those who come to you for assistance.

We’ll also be comparing the historical narrative that has accompanied the development of Zero Balancing from its inception in the 1970s, with current conversations regarding pain science and the biopsychosocial model of therapeutics, offering contemporary relevance to this remarkable bodywork system.

If you’re currently a hands-on therapist, I can guarantee that you’ll be introduced to some deeply helpful ideas and principles which you might well find will enhance your current style of working, as well as offering the opportunity to begin to learn Zero Balancing as a 'stand-alone' treatment style. If you’re a movement therapist, then this workshop offers a chance to explore ‘the other side of the coin’ - the therapeutic potency of stillness - but also includes a stack of ideas and content that I think you will find hugely informative for your movement practice. 

 

Phil's Core Zero Balancing workshops are limited to eight student places, in order to ensure a high level of personal tuition and hands-on feedback.

To book your place please contact Phil directly at zbphil@btinternet.com

4 Day Workshop:

Price: €500 including Workshop Manual

Dates: April 28th, 29th, 30th, May 1st 2017 (Bank Holiday)

Times: 9.30am-5.30pm each day

Phil Greenfield originally studied McTimoney Chiropractic, and has been a student of Zero Balancing for over twenty three years, having taught the system to those involved in therapeutic practice of all types, since 2004. 

Author of Unravelling - Letting Go, Getting Well, a light-hearted and much-appreciated manual for human wellness, Phil has run a successful bodywork practice in Derby UK, since 1992.

Handstand Level I + II @ Init Yoga

12:30 PM12:30

Handstand Level I + II @ Init Yoga

One day.
Two Handstand Workshops.
AM Fitness at Init Yoga.

On the back of a fantastic Handstand Workshop last month for everyone at Init Yoga, Ringsend, we have been invited back to hold another workshop.

This time we are doing another of the Level I: Foundation Workshop's for those who missed out the first time around.

And for those who took part, and indeed those who already have some handstand experience with us, we are hosting a Level II: Improving The Handstand workshop

Coaches Andy Myers, Anthony Claffey & Vincent Vis will lead the workshops with each of their own unique input as always.

This promises a dynamic approach to all elements from Vincent, a structural and anatomical approach from Anthony and a practical eye for individualization from Andy.

In short you receive the benefits of three coaches who believe the same principles but have beautifully different styles and approaches. NOTHING will be missed on the day, no stone left unturned for any individual and all questions answered with ample time during the session and after for the purpose of asking questions.

What will be covered on the day?

LEVEL 1: Handstand Foundation

  1. Principles and Philosophy of Handstand, Balancing & Rebalancing; An introduction into understanding the important elements of the handstand, breaking the myths of balance as a goal.
  2. Anatomy & Biomechanics of Handstand; Mobility Assessment & Structural demonstration.
  3. Strength & Conditioning Joints; Wrists & Shoulders
  4. Efficiency vs Expense; Conditioning Muscles in order to not need them.
  5. Inversions and Fear; How to be upside down properly and how to be standing again safely
  6. Dynamic Approach; How to Kick Up and your approach to Consistenc

LEVEL II: Improving The Handstand

  1. Refresher on REbalance principles & Individual assessment
  2. Advancing Biomechanics and dissecting the Handstanders INTENTION and FOCUS; Using various drills we will put your attention on different aspects of your handstand and see what one clicks for you. If the first course is about simplifying and familiarizing the handstand, this course is about details, details, details. 
  3. Strength & Conditioning; While focusing on each isolated component you will earn the priviledge to be uspide down by conditioning yourself into a sweat to make sure you register it deeply into your subconscious
  4. Balance drills; Time to refine and work on finding your centre
  5. Varying and Individualising the kick up; From limb lengths to mobility, to mental blocks and prior habits... everyone has difference needs. Here we will learn variations on kicking up and tailor each persons entry to handstand to meet you where you are

Q & A Time

Although we will make space during the workshops for you to ask questions we will also make sure to stay on a little longer to answer any questions anyone may have and will happily physically demonstrate each answers to there is 100% clarity and leave you with the precise practice you need as an individual.

PRICING & TIMES

Sunday November 6th

Both Workshops starts 12.30pm sharp and will end between 3.30pm/4pm depending on Q & A duration. 3 hours minimum.

Cost: €75 for either workshop Level I or II - SEE LINK ABOVE TO PAY

Reconnection Workshop
Aug
19
7:15 PM19:15

Reconnection Workshop

We are delighted to kick off the first of our planned series of events/talks/movement sessions and general use of our space, energy and time for cultivation.

It has been on our mind for longer than we care to admit that we feel restricted by class structure sometimes... in the sense that we have so much more to offer.

Since we opened here we have been through many forms of getting our message to people, many different ways of doing things. We have managed, with all the experience behind us, to now separate things to where they will work best. Our Strength, Mobility and Movement training is in a beautiful place and so we can expand a little more and DO more.

SO... it's time to start giving more again, time to open the doors for others to give what they have and see what we can create when we all come together and put our unique views, skills, ideas and good intentions into action.

Debuting with something special, we are delighted to have Anthony Claffey and his Reconnection Workshop on Friday 19th August at 7.15pm

Details below. Please not that this workshop is for AM Fitness members only and an in-house intro but that our talks will be most definitely a public thing soon :)


Reconnection

Are you in pain, previously experienced pain or currently suffering with a re-occurring symptom or injury, which is hindering your day-to- day life?

Have you ever wonder why?

Why does it come back again?

Has anyone ever explained to you why this could be happening?

The Why... Is what we will delve into in this workshop.

I will explain the why and more importantly, rather than you accepting what I say, I will let you experience it for yourself in your own body.

I want to remove the labels given to us by society: 'You have arthritis, you have

bad posture, you have chronic back pain' etc etc

Your body does not understand labels – It understands movement!

We are designed to move each and every joint in our body in all 3 dimensions, when this doesn’t happen is when we start to see problems.

From my work as an Anatomy in Motion Practitioner this workshop we will look at how the body moves in 3 dimensions, teach postural basics that will restore movement to your body and spine.

You will become aware of your habits. You will understand Why. You will learn to ease joint pain, and start you on a path to optimizing your body.

Come and learn to feel better, shed tension, improve posture, relax and reconnect with your body.

This workshop is for AM Fitness members only at present and is free of charge.

The talk will be 60 minutes with 20 minutes after for Q & A/informal chat

Participants must bring a pen and paper and an open mind

To book your place contact Andy at the studio.

We are looking forward to seeing you all here and are confident you will gain some real insight into your body and being pain free

Tom Weksler: Movement Archery & Zen Acrobatics
Apr
1
to Apr 3

Tom Weksler: Movement Archery & Zen Acrobatics

Movement Archery Workshop:

The right art is purposeless, aimless. The more obstinately you try to learn how to shoot the arrow for the sake of hitting the goal, the less you will succeed in the one and the further the other will recede. What stands in your way is that you have a much too willful will. You think that what you do not do yourself does not happen.
— Eugen Herrigel

Each day of workshop will consist of 3 parts:

Part 1 - Warm-up

Tom’s concept of warm-up is based on the mover’s need to tune into a clear and subtle quality before their practice and execution. The routine Tom follows and teaches is inspired by concepts of Chaya (Shadow) Yoga and particularly the “Balakarma” series (stepping into strength), and other forms of soft martial arts. The warm-up routine emphasizes the opening of the darkest parts of our bodies - our legs, which are also the most distant from our eyes. Demanding postures alongside gentle flow with circular motions and spirals will be introduced in order to provide better awareness of the lower parts. The second principle Tom wishes to unfold is preparations (or introduction) to low movement while maintaining the gentle functions of the wrists and neck as tools for balance, sensing the space and organically digesting physical information - internal and external.

Part 2 - Floorwork

Tom’s technique of floor work serves as a “risk management” mechanism which ultimately leads to freedom in a much larger scale than usually experienced by performers of a single discipline. Tom introduces dynamics of falling, rolling, collapsing, flipping and melting down in order to reduce and eventually eliminate the type of actions we usually refer to as “failure” in dance, athletics and martial arts.

The practice is composed both of simple, almost “daily” actions, alongside “complicated” acrobatic risks without distinguishing between them or judging what’s important and unimportant. This approach allows a blend of influences from the Animal Kingdom, Capoeira, Gymnastics, Tae Kwon Do, Parkour, Brazillian Jiujitsu and Bboying to fall effortlessly into an empty category of functional motions.

Part 3 - Archery

The “Archery” practice is Tom’s sincere attempt to create a practice of movement which lies in the space between fight and gestures-free expression. The practice can be executed with two movers and up, and involves the development of both circular and sharp reactions which leads to high levels of awareness and a fluent - “tactical” mind. The movers will go through different forms of “games” which can wear strict rules and objectives or just a physical play of examining and interacting - a play we are all familiar with but tend to lose during our mature life in modern society.Upon practicing Archery one can feel either like he or she is involved in a very skillful combat or in a passionate dance full of risks and traps. It is important to note that the name “Archery” ultimately holds nothing behind it as it constantly changes and flows into the shape the practitioners make up according to their needs and passions.

Tom has been practicing Capoeira, Martial Arts and different forms of acrobatic disciplines from a young age. Tom graduated in 2009 from “The Workshop for Dancers and Choreographers in Haifa”, in the contemporary dance department. Since 2010, Tom has been dancing with “Inbal Pinto and Avshallom Pollak Dance Company” and performed with the comapny’s productions in many theaters and festivals around the world.In 2014 Tom has collaborated as a performer with “Rootlessroot” and “Dot504” in the piece “Collective Loss Of Memory”. Tom's movement workshop took place in Tel Aviv, Athens, Amsterdam, London, Berlin, Tokyo, San Francisco, Guadalajara and more.


Zen Acrobatics

Tom's approach for acrobatics training has developed from the urge to look for freedom in movement. The main goal is to find a movement quality that supports simple actions like walking and running, as well as acrobatic feats without a difference in effort or muscular usage.

In order to do this, Tom searches for high levels of awareness and precision so the body can react quickly to the changes in skeletal stress, and to maintain flow without unnecessary tension.

In classical acrobatic disciplines – Preparation, Climax and Landing are being treated as completely different aspects while usually one is more important than the other. 

In "Zen Acrobatics" the practitioner aspires to transform all 3 stages into one motion that can ultimately connect to any other type of movement.

Sounds of take-offs and landings, Placement of Eye-Focus and Optimal breath for each element are all being covered aside from the Anatomical Instructions and Basic Conditioning.

The acrobatic training allows the mover to tune into a "mind-quality" which is usually present only in Extreme Sports or Full – Contact Sports. The mover becomes animalistic and functional, and while attempting complicated feats he turns on "survival instincts" which allows him to reflect on his movement from an entirely different point of view.


You can find all of Tom's video's on his youtube channel here

About Danny

I’m Danny, the CEO and founder of Sigma Nutrition. I’m a nutrition coach and educator and self-professed geek of health and human performance.

My approach stems from a mix of my scientific background (I have a masters degree in nutritional sciences) and my practical application of this knowledge.

I used to struggle with knowing what advice and recommendations would maximize my health and performance and which would hurt it. I dug deep into the scientific research and what I discovered was game-changing. And those findings (and what I continue to discover) is what I want to breakdown and present to people.

The world of nutritional advice can be an annoyingly confusing and manipulative one.

I don’t want you to take it that I’m right and everyone else is wrong. That’s not the case. I don’t know everything and I never will. But I do work hard to learn constantly and then report what I am learning along this lifelong journey. Hopefully something I say resonates with you at some point and makes a difference.

What I do want is to give you the tools to be able to accurately separate the brilliant from the misleading.

I’ve been on the other side of this too. I’ve struggled to work things out and truth be told I still  struggle with some things. But it’s all about that constant journey of learning and discovery. Sigma Nutrition allows me to bring others in on that journey with me.

What is SIGMA Nutrition?

My driving ambition is to create a complete culture shift in how we collectively think of nutrition, health and life. A HUGE goal but an achievable one, that must start with education and awareness.

I like to think of Sigma as a virtual centre of learning that enables people to:

  • Continuously self-educate
  • Learn about the factors THEY can change that will help create this culture shift
  • Expand their nutrition toolkit  in order to achieve everything they want to
  • Or simply learn a few nuggets of info that will improve their life.

How? By providing access to an honest breakdown of cutting-edge, science-based information and merging that with blueprints of how best to practically use that information

My Story

While I love to learn, even more than that, I love to pass this information on so it may benefit others.

I completed a degree in Biology & Physics. During my time studying I became fascinated in researching nutrition and how it relates to human health and performance. I quickly discovered that many of the beliefs we have been conditioned to believe about nutrition actually have a weak scientific basis or sometimes are just flat out incorrect.

From that point I committed myself to continued research in an attempt to discover how we should eat for optimal health, performance and body composition.

After graduating and working as a biology & physics teacher for a year, I quit school-teaching in order to pursue my mission to spread the message of what real nutrition actually is and to educate people on its impact on our health, athletic performance and basic functioning as human beings.

I returned to university education where I completed my master’s degree in Nutritional Science. All the while I continued my self-education via reading, talking to experts and self-experimentation.

I have learnt (and continue to learn) from attending mentorships programs and live seminars under some of the biggest and best names in the fields of nutrition, health and performance. This list includes the likes of Alan Aragon, Martin MacDonald, Robb Wolf, Dr. Bryan Walsh, Dr. Tom O’ Bryan, the Irish Strength Institute, among others.

I host a weekly podcast, Sigma Nutrition Radio, which you can find on iTunes as well as sigmanutrition.com

Connect With Me!

I’d love to grab a coffee with you (any excuse for a coffee shop visit!) and talk nutrition, health and life. If I could that’s what everyday would be made up of! But that’s not feasible most of the time so perhaps you’d prefer something easier, like one of the below…
