Portland, OR weekend

What Lies Beneath the Navel?

On Friday 1/30, Marty presented a public talk at Bikram Yoga - John's Landing in Portland, OR. For 2 hours, over 40 people ate tasty, vegan, live food while listening to Marty speak and answer questions about their guts. This was a lot of fun! Yoga and gyrotonics students, health care practitioners, and other interested people packed the yoga hall.

Many thanks to Christy Whitney and Terri Poch for facilitating such a great event. They are excellent models for connection and attracting folks to them. If you are ever in Portland, please drop by the studio for a class or pick up some excellent live, vegan fare.

Oregon AMTA Annual Meeting

On Saturday and Sunday 1/31 - 2/01, Marty presented on the fascial architecture of the belly, and manual applications to dysmenorrhea and pelvic organ prolapse. This was the first Love Your Guts Seminars event at a state AMTA convention.

We will be doing this again in March 2009 in Lexington, KY, and in July 2009 in Muncie, IN. These convention events are inexpensive and excellent ways to introduce yourself to this work, as well as begin the process of palpatory fluency in the belly.
