Eldoa Workshop - with Roselby Rodriguez
Saturday February 3, 2018 From 2:30pm to 3:30pm
The ELDOA is a specific technique created by world-renowned osteopath, Dr. Guy VOYER. ELDOA (Étirements Longitudinaux Avec Decoaptation OsteoArticulaire), or more easily translated to Longitudinal Osteo-Articular Decoaptation of the Spine, are very specific postures compared to other techniques. Disc compression existing at any level of the spine can be addressed through a specific ELDOA exercise. Every class/workshop is designed to respect the proper progressions and order of the techniques as taught by Dr. Voyer to ensure quality. During the sessions, we will introduce different postures depending on the needs of those participating, and we will also cover the awareness of the body and mind during the practice encouraging clients to bring that knowledge home.
When we stretch the fascia that surrounds all the muscles, organs and nerves in our body restrictions are freed and a calm, balanced feeling takes over.
- Who should attend:
- Working professionals with forwarding head postures and neck pain
- Runners and athletes
- Clients with aging spine and joints
- Clients with low back pain who are seating for long periods of time
- Anyone that wants to feel space in the body and better movement
