In Ortho-Bionomy, Isometric and Isotonic techniques are used for working with inefficient muscular tension patterns, as well an underdeveloped muscle tone. A range of techniques will be demonstrated and practiced in this class, including related anatomy. Through the use of gently resisting movement, as the client engages muscles, self-correcting reflexes are stimulated, allowing habitual holding patterns to release. Participants learn how the conscious use of gentle obstacles can help promote change from both rigid physical and emotional patterns, towards greater mobility and allow the client to actively participate in the session.
