Tango for BeginnersDSC00980-002

Argentine tango is a graceful, improvised, and social (partner) dance. Different from Latin and ballroom dances, there are no set choreographed steps, but rather a focus on connection and communication between partners to create ease and elegance as each step is led.

This class will start at the beginning by focusing on these key elements, giving you the confidence to navigate the dance floor like a pro!

No partner is necessary as we rotate partners in class. Shoes with flexible soles and that slide/glide on the floor are highly recommended.

Tango for Beginners // 6-Week Series
Wednesdays 7:30 – 8:30 p.m. // January 10 – February 14

About Instructor, Alexis WeinkaufSDC12802-1

Alexis Weinkauf has been dancing Argentine tango for nearly ten years. She began teaching classes and private lessons four years ago, and just taught her first weekend workshop in Montana where she began her tango journey.

She has traveled the country to attend workshops and festivals with world renowned instructors. Her love of the dance stems from many things, mostly that there is always something new to learn, and that anyone can do it. Her motto is “If you can walk, you can tango!”

Zero Balancing Core 118278406_10104490760791378_1211889547571546080_o

February 8 – 11 // 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

This is the first course of the Core Zero Balancing curriculum and introduces the intellectual and practical framework of the art and science of Zero Balancing. Core Zero Balancing teaches students to work with body structure and body energy along with a unique approach to skilled touch called Interface Touch. Students learn a 30 to 40-minute Zero Balancing protocol that allow beginners to offer Zero Balancing sessions to healthy individuals in keeping with their skills, expertise, and scope of practice.

This is the first course of the Core Zero Balancing curriculum and introduces the intellectual and practical framework of the art and science of Zero Balancing.

Instructors provide a detailed study guide, clear presentations, and demonstrations of Zero Balancing. In practice sessions, students experience both how to perform Zero Balancing and how Zero Balancing feels to receive.

You Will Learn:

  • The basic Zero Balancing protocol
  • Theory and principles of ZB
  • To distinguish body energy and body structure through touch
  • The skill of using energy as a working tool
  • The energetic anatomy of the skeleton
  • The theory and application of fulcrums
  • How to give a ZB session

“I needed to hear the concept of interface and the importance of clarity of presence and energy! I feel my work will be refocused and re-energized!” – Cathy Schneider, LMT

March 8 – 11 // 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Geometry of Healing (GOH) is an advanced level Zero Balancing course that teaches students how to work directly with the vibratory/energetic fields of the body. It defines ‘fields’ and then teaches how to access and evaluate vibratory fields, obtain information contained therein, and how to balance and clarify the designated field or material.

The program shows how to work with slowed vibratory fields to access “the gap” (an experience of stepping beyond time, space, and information — a field of pure potential). Much of the theoretical material presented is based on quantum physics, holograms, field theory, and how they relate to the world of touch.

GOH is the third of three Zero Balancing courses related to energy fields: Core Zero Balancing addresses the relationship between existing body energy fields and body structure; Alchemy of Touch applies amplification strategies to balance energy fields; GOH works with the fields themselves including the space between vibrations.

You Will Learn:

  • Theory of fields
  • Accessing, evaluating and navigating fields
  • Creation of ‘windows’ into the field
  • Entering and experiencing the ‘gap’ within the field
  • Compression of fields
  • Obtaining information from within the field
  • Self-referencing body signals as feedback for practitioner
  • Teachings designed to deepen your basic ZB skills and protocol use
  • Through exchanges of Zero Balancing sessions and demonstrations

“This has been one of the most powerful and magical and yet scientific ZB classes I have taken. Principles of quantum physics and field theory – that could potentially be so abstract and hard to grasp – gain structure in that we can access them with our hands through the body.” – Amanda King, LMT

Zero Balancing Core 218238208_10104490759528908_4338608893415859613_o

June 14 – 17 // 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Zero Balancing II is the second half of the Core Zero Balancing program in which students review the material from ZB I while learning new fulcrums and expanding their understanding of how and why Zero Balancing is so effective.
ZB II is highly recommended for all ZB practitioners who have not taken a ZB course in a while as it includes the most up-to-date methods for performing Zero Balancing.

You Will Learn:

  • A review of the basic ZB protocol with an emphasis on quality of touch, focus and positioning of the practitioner
  • To deepen your understanding of ZB theory, principles and techniques
  • Additional techniques to create an expanded protocol
  • New skills and coordination in handling energy and structure
  • How to frame or set goals for a ZB session
  • To advance your ability to work with expanded states of consciousness
  • To give and receive constructive peer feedback
  • To acquire experience in preparation for advanced study

“Whether I’m doing ZB or with the other therapeutic approaches I use, it has given me a framework with which to work. It has also improved my palpation skills. So many of the ZB techniques are applicable to the pain patients I treat.” – Martha Plescia, PT

Freely Moveable Joints18216670_10104490759768428_1034627735304720134_o

September 13 – 16 // 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Freely Moveable Joints is an advanced level Zero Balancing course that expands the focus of Zero Balancing from the foundation and semi-foundation joints of the body to include the “freely moveable joints” of the body. Zero Balancing principles and techniques are taken beyond the Core Zero Balancing protocol into other arenas. The freely moveable joints present unique therapeutic challenges because of the variety of their anatomy and their great ranges of motion.

By the end of the program you will have the skills to evaluate and balance freely moveable joints and the knowledge to devise your own fulcrums to meet the specific needs of a given situation. In Freely Moveable Joints we will review basic ZB principles and highlight their application to a number of joints in light of their specific anatomy. The skills and education inherent in this course will broaden your Zero Balancing abilities and will improve your Zero Balancing sessions.

You Will Learn:

  • Highlights of Zero Balancing principles as they apply to FMJs
  • Upper extremity: shoulder girdle, shoulder, elbow, wrist, fingers
  • Lower extremity: knee, ankle, metatarsals, toes
  • Accessing the sacro-iliac joint via the hip
  • Acetabular hip fulcrum
  • Temporomandibular joint fulcrum
  • Direct bone fulcrums and ‘bone bending’
  • Teachings designed to deepen your basic ZB skills and protocol use
  • By exchanging Zero Balancing sessions and seeing ZB demonstrations

“[This course] gives me more tools and confidence to work with elbows and knees and ankles and jaws. Most importantly, [FMJ] deepened my understanding of ZB overall.” – Rachael Timberlake, LAC
