"One step further than relaxation lies peace." Milton Trager

We explore listening, presence and connection.

We learn in this first course to use the postures and principles of Trager Therapy such as curiosity, gravity/weight and the pauses as experiential tools. We learn to slow down and be better in the present moment. We learn a simple routine that addresses all areas of the body with Trager postures and techniques. We learn how to improve our own mindfulness in everyday life.

Learning contents

  • The process of hook-up: directing attention inward, physically, holistically (meditatively) and opening all the senses allow us to become aware of our interconnectedness with everything.
  • The most important basic skills (grounding, orientation, connection, Mentastics, pauses, inner and outer attitude) in contact with oneself and with other people.
  • The concept of orientation to the healthy and whole in life.
  • Guided exchanges of experience with the contents of the hand postures including directions of movement in each body region, in the supine and prone position.
