All the top sports players and dance artists use visualization techniques as a tried and true method to enhance their performances. Regina knows from personal experience and training that we could all be moving more safely into better health by moving more mindfully.
A long time teacher of Spacial Dynamics and Eurhythmy, Regina feels inspired to teach this workshop after seeing so many of her students and bodywork clients injure themselves unnecessarily. So many of us move our bodies through our daily activities and workouts on automatic pilot! WE CAN WAKE UP to our unconscious habits and move in safer ways!
Spacial Dynamics studies the fluid relationship between human beings and the space around us. It teaches how to optimize that relationship and break the patterns of old behaviors of movement. Learning to recognize and then change one’s spacial movement patterns is key to being able to change any habit.
Spacial Dynamics teaches how to avoid movements that drain and cause strain, in order to move ourselves towards greater strength and revitalization.
Dance and massage combine naturally in Regina’s life work, cultivating freer movement in the body.
Regina probably danced before she walked! Growing up with the wall-to-wall rhythms of life in Brazil, her body moves to the music as easily as a dandelion puff floats on the wind. Classically trained in ballet, modern dance and jazz, her body naturally models great alignment. Samba flows through her like a multi-streamed river. She performed in a contemporary dance company for 5 years.
She studied Spacial Dynamics (aligning the physical, ego and soul) and Eurythmy (also known as “soul gymnastics”) in England – both of which she learned to use for therapeutic purposes with children. She also practiced Waldorf’s Sensory Integration and Neurodevelopmental Movement Therapy while teaching for years at Waldorf school in Honolulu, sharing her child-heart warmth. At Waldorf she taught both children and adults to move consciously, purposefully.
Due to a devastating bike/car accident, Regina had to teach herself to walk again. This she did with strong visualization practices. Regina recalls, “In 2007 I had a car/bicycle accident that was life changing. Through this deep experience I was blessed with the realization that our mindset deeply influences our lives and that bodywork can be transformational at physical, emotional and spiritual levels. It is about committing to ourselves as we go through our journey in life.”
A few years after a full recovery from her accident, Regina stepped out of her teaching career to give her attention to healing bodywork therapy as a licensed massage therapist. Regina is motivated by her clients’ journey of moving out and away from physical and emotional pain as she applies the work with them. She is thrilled to watch her clients becoming more and more empowered, centered, grounded and finding their inner peace as she works with them.
All of these practice prepared the soil for Regina’s growth in Nia. Regina earned her Nia White Belt from Winalee Zeeb in 2017.
