Special Highlight

8 days of Restorative and Invigorating Bowspring
Fascia Yoga with Jennifer Metzger

You can specifically use the principles of Bowspring to get freedom, lightness and a good mood to the body. In Bowspring Yoga, the body is not worked linearly – in one direction or in a straight line – but holistically, radically from center to outside, stretched and throbbed. In Bowspring the body is not seen linear, but 3 Dimensional – in its natural form.

The benefits of Bowspring are a freer feeling in the body. It creates more lightness and at the same time tones the body. It also enhances the healing process in the joints, organs and mind. The Roman poet Juvelnal said “In a healthy body lives a healthy mind.”

And that’s exactly what does:  Bowspring heals!

Bowspring loosens the facies that are closely linked to the nervous system dissolving or deflecting the body tension, while simultaneously healing and relaxing the mind. When the voltage inside the body is broken down, it can be redirected and so more body voltage can be activated on the outside. Thus, the body heals the mind and vice versa.

Bowspring is a radiant and even tone around the entire body.

You work with the double S curve of the spine, which is our spring, bow spring or shock absorber which is why you feel weightless with Bowspring – Antigravity Effect!

When we are in the radian tone in the natural form of the spine, our mood will lift! The pulsation, seesaws and feathers have a positive effect on the nervous system which everyone has performed unconsciously as children.

The body knows what is healthy or healing and the additional benefits of the movements generate happy hormones; a motivation in itself!

The Radiant Heart loosens and frees our chest area developing space for the higher, sublime feelings and thoughts. The tightness in the chest area disappears and what has been created is more space from the center to the outside and striving for the top.

Radiant Heart makes the sun rise in the heart!

During the week we will go through the entire subsystem of the body.

  • Day 1 – Radiant Heart – Expanse of the Ridge / Radiant Heart Meditation. Heart and Lungs get much more space when we practice holistic breathing.
  • Day 2 – Wings – open the shoulders, shoulder girdle, shoulder blades for ease, release the pressure and tension in the shoulder and neck area plus strengthening the upper arm. Wim hof breathing exercises.
  • Day 3 – Roots – create strong legs and feet to feel stable and secure.
  • Day 4 – Roots – widen of the pelvic base. Buttocks and thighs are strengthened which are the motor of locomotion.
    Belly – learn to let go of the belly so that it can move in the natural form of the spinal column / Corestification of the lordosis / abdominal breathing.
  • Day 5 – Belly – create more gut feeling Intuition / be in the flow, learn to relax the belly to tone it and find more support.
  • Day 6 – Neck, Crown – Opening of the cervical spine / extension over the crown, 3-dimensional and over crown chakra, relax your chin and facial muscles.

About Jennifer Metzger

I started practicing Hatha Yoga in the 2001 due to hip pains that I had for over 20 years. After 6 years  became a teacher of it with r 4 of those teaching and living in Italy. In 2002- 2004, I studied Wu Thai Chi and Chi Gong – Chan Dao Academy Regensburg for 200 hours with Master Theo Schmidt whom I am eternally grateful for teaching me patience and humility. His words have often accompanied me in difficult situations.

In 2011, I found Anusara Yoga and studied about 600 hours with different teachers .I would especially like to thank Barbra Noh for her excellent precision of alignment and technique  and Piero Vivarelli for his deep spiritual practice, which he shared in his lessons. When you came out of your hours with him your heart and mind were filled with silence. In 2014-2105 ,I  studied 200 hours of Ashtanga with Michael Durant Schabort and Iyenga Yoga with Michael Forbes.

In May 2016, I participated in a  Bowspring workshop in Marbella .After the beginner class, I felt my entire butt and thigh muscle for the first time in my life. My chest and shoulder girdle were loose, open and I had so much more freedom of movement. I felt so light and vibrant that I could not stop smiling and rejoicing. This weekend had changed my life.

After about 8 weeks of daily practice of  the Bowspring method of movements for about  20 minutes, y my hip pain disappeared, my joints feel better ,my, thighs and buttocks were  getting toned, and my skin became more elastic. It is as if one would feel from the outside a strong protective cover and the fabric inside, getting firmer.

This was a  total body tone with my will power and energy becoming more active as the weeks went by.  I then joined the 200 hour teacher training program with Desi Springer and John Friend.
