Education Helps Us FUNction 

 The more we know about how to take care of our bodies, the better our systems feel and function.  Helping each other operate at our best capacity is a fabulous way to show our mutual appreciation, in my opinion.  

Let me help you help others, starting with your family.

Family Massage Guidance teaches you hands-on massage, through you practicing on yourself as I guide you (from a safe distance); and then y'all get to practice on each other. Add EIM for greater benefits!

Elementally Intuitive Movement may be Intuitive Movement 101; and may progress to Elemental Implement Manipulation.

The Support Series* of workshops caters to the helpers; by offering the same total price for 1-8 people, and dividing the hoops, folks have the opportunity to gather together and learn at an affordable price--and go home with a 2+ hoops to get them started in their own self-care practice, as well as the skills to make more. 

Parents are helpers, too: helping to raise the next generation of humans; collaborating with and taking care of each other. and themselves. The better care we take of our own bodies & minds, the more resources we have to share with each other.

Anyone can download free E-books of everything I have put together; just peruse the site and you will find them.

Elementally Intuitive Movement

$ 200.00 USD

Priced by the hour; total for 1-8 humans, of walking age. Four hour maximum.

Physical education is important; especially for kids who may not be athletically inclined--I know! I was asthmatic, over-weight bookworm.

Elementally Intuitive Movement is based in flow arts; it's foundation is Intuitive Movement 101, which introduces students to the six progressive levels of conscious movement.

We advance to Elemental Implement Manipulation; working with preferred implements. (Implements are not provided).

Family Massage Guidance

$ 200.00 USD

The flat rate is $200/hr; though you may want to book 2-3 hours, depending on the size of your family--and/or multiple sessions.

I provide in-person guidance, at a safe distance: initially beginning with self-massage, so each learn how to use your hands on yourselves; then moving on to how you can work on each other's problem areas, applying the hands-on method that you learned on yourself.

This is an opportunity to practice clear communication, regarding perceived pressure, using the Pressure Rainbow (colors and numbers) so your partner learns to adjust their hands according to your particular needs, which will vary daily.

Without providing hands-on instruction, I guide you through gentle massage techniques that will help you support each other, within the safety of your family/pod.

Take care of your flock and cheers to your health!

EIM + Family/Self Massage

$ 250.00 USD

Because I believe in the power of intuitive movement as a self-care and functional mobility training practice, I want to make it an affordable addition to your guided massage sessions.

Included are either 4 balls, or one hoop set (4 hoops); you may easily make your own hoops, if you want more!

Alternatively, I offer a class that includes hoops, if you don't want to make more tools yourself.

This is an hourly rate; you may want to book 2-3 hours, depending on the size of your family; or multiple sessions, so that we have enough time to cover self-massage and then applying the hands-on techniques you learned on your own body, on each other; as well as learning levels O-2 (the first 4 levels) of your preferred Elemental Implement.

You will also learn fun ways to use the implements together, as family, to stretch and mobilize each other--contactless--as a group.

It feels like playing together, instead of exercise. The time flies!

The first hour we make our tools; the second hour we apply them.

We also address "The Pressure Rainbow" as communication system that goes deeper than "1-10," so that we may better understand the pressure/discomfort our patients/clients may be experiencing...and may help them better understand themselves, as well.

This can serve as an excellent team-building exercise.

Having hoops of different sizes provides the body with training wheels for ergonomic movement that guide the body through different ranges of motion.

Hoop-Making for Kids (8-12)

$ 500.00 USD

This 2-hr workshop includes all the necessary materials to make 8 hoop sets (4 hoops of 4 diameters) out of 100 ft of tubing, for 8 kids.

We will make the hoops; wrap/decorate the hoops; and learn how to practice allowing the hoops to move us.

Emphasis is placed on respecting boundaries, and keeping our hoops within our spheres--which is why we always maintain a hold of them, so they can't fly off into someone else's space.

Adult participation is required; it provides the opportunity for parents/family to learn, too!

Once you know how to make hoops, you can expand your Hoopment practice from self-care to sharing care--and give mini-hoops away to friends and family, as gifts.

The better care we take of ourselves, the better we feel--which supports pleasant interactions, all around. We can each do our part to support that process, when we choose to.

THE Hoopment! It's a mini-movement.

Hoop-Making for Teens

$ 500.00 USD

This 2-hr workshop includes all the necessary materials to make 8 hoop sets (4 hoops of 4 diameters) out of 100 ft of tubing, for 8 teens.

Emphasis is placed on body mechanics, and applying the movement training that Hoopment provides, to other activities, such as sports and hobbies, even household chores.

We explore mindfulness training applications, and how practicing Hoopment can help increase both environmental and body awareness; and how that increased awareness can assist us as we navigate through life, sans hoops.

Adult participation is preferred; it provides the opportunity for parents/family to learn, too!

Hoopment provides opportunities for community volunteerism, through facilitating Hoopment for others.

Mini-hoops are easily made with inexpensive materials, and offer excellent profit returns--granting teens the opportunity to practice entrepreneurship.

I recommend selling them at: 1/$10; 2/$15; 3/$20; 4/$25; and giving away every 5th hoop to whoever you feel would benefit most. It's how we help The Hoopment grow--and in so doing, we help each other grow, with self-care!
