In addition to the Yoga Postures, some of John’s private sessions might include his knowledge of Hellerwork.

What is Hellerwork?

Hellerwork is a powerful, integrated system of structural bodywork, movement education and dialogue. Hellerwork makes the connection between movement, body alignment and personal awareness. By freeing natural movement, balancing the body’s structure and opening up expression, Hellerwork allows you to optimize how you use your body.

Hellerwork engages the human being through structure, function, emotion and energy. The body is realigned using proven connective tissue reorganization techniques. Current movement habits are brought to awareness then released and natural ease emerges.

Although Hellerwork may be effective for temporary pain or tension relief, we recognize that pain and tension are usually the result of an overall pattern of imbalance occurring in the person. Rather than treating the pain or tension “symptom” of this imbalance, Hellerwork focuses on rebalancing the entire body, returning it to a more aligned, relaxed and youthful state. Balance is not a static condition; it is a process of constant flux – a fluid expression of wholeness and ease.

The three components of Hellerwork include:

1.  Bodywork

A “hands on” process where the practitioner works with you to release chronic tension and rigidity in your body. This results in a more improved posture, greater flexibility & ease, and less discomfort.

2.  Movement Education

Movement education helps you become aware of your set movement habits and assists you in finding new patterns of balance and alignment in your everyday life as well as in your sports and work activities. This in turn prevents the return of tension to your body.

3.  Dialogue

Dialogue with your practitioner allows you to recognize any of your ongoing attitudinal patterns which contribute to tension in your body. It will give you insights into how your emotions and beliefs influence your body’s well being. In dialogue you will uncover new, easy to use ways to deal with your particular life’s stresses and upsets.
