Energy, Strength and Mysticism of the Pelvis

SOMA Festival Praha 2020 - Saturday 13:00 -14:30

Energy, Strength and Mysticism of the Pelvis

This lecture will focus on the pelvis, its structures and functions. The pelvis will be examined in terms of bone architecture, muscle dynamics, organ vitality, endocrine gland, its relationship to energy, and embryonic history. We will look at the delicate relationships between the structures and we will deepen our understanding of its functionality and care.

The workshop will use the BMC® approach.
