Morning session – 8:30am - 11:30am

Each morning, we begin the day diving into a Block Intensive taught by Deanna. This will be a combination of both single and double blocking and will cover the entire body. This will create tremendous change to your overall fascia pattern and allow you to melt through many layers of old habits to catapult your body into a new alignment.  

The concentrated time each day, combined with doing this for 3 days in a row will create a powerful transformation to all levels of your being. You will be connecting to your deeper cells, releasing past trauma, igniting new movement patterns and finding a deep level of calm.

Afternoon session – 3:30pm - 5:30pm

Tuesday – Quinn will be taking you through a combination of alignment training and blocking positions as you learn to own the newly created space from the morning session. Having the opportunity to follow his guidance, with Heather and Deanna working the room to adjust and assist you, will give you a whole new perspective of your body and how your limbs are positioned. 

This will help to cement a deeper understanding and muscle memory so you can take this with you and continue to apply these teachings into your daily life.

Wednesday – Deanna will be taking you through a series of positions and applications using our new tool – The Block Paddle. You will be gifted one of these to use and take home. The Block Paddle gives you a different way to approach your fascia as it mimics more the movements of the fingers. This is excellent for getting into those hard-to-reach adhesions, and navigating interesting landscapes like the face and feet, where the blocks may be limiting.

Thursday – Once again you will be taken through a series of alignment training and blocking positions. As you will have progressed through the layers of your fascia, you will again be engaging in patterning new alignment principles as you connect with those intricate muscles required to promote both stability and mobility in your body.

Evening Meditation – 8:00pm - 8:45pm

Each night, we will end with a guided meditation by Deanna. After a full day of Blocking, alignment training and detoxing, you will be ready to allow your mind to focus on your breath as you drift into a peaceful state of bliss. This will prepare you for a deep and restful sleep which is when your body jumps into healing mode. This will be the perfect ending to allow your body to release and restore.
