How the Physical Body May Be Missing from Our Mental & Spiritual Development Chelsey here! I wonder if you've thought about this, too… I’ve met people who have meditated, prayed and visualized their way into mental and spiritual development, but they feel something big is missing. I’ve met folks who have been in talk therapy for years, even decades and they still feel stuck on the same problems. What both of these groups have in common is NOT that they’ve been doing the wrong things, but that their bodies still remain within the shadow of their consciousness.  We can use embodiment ..read more

Felicia Russell x Brooklyn Mindbody Collective How-to kick-start your body’s lymphatic system to support immune health and naturally detox ??   What is our lymphatic system and what does it do? Let us start with the word lymphatic, the root “lympha” is Latin for clear waters. So, essentially what we are speaking about is the “clear waters” system of the body. This is important to note because as humans, our bodies are made up of an estimated 60-70% water. Much like the cardiovascular system, the lymphatic system is a network. This network of ducts and vessels collect lymph from the b ..read more

Kathleen Bostleman x Brooklyn Mindbody Collective Starting a new yoga practice can be transformative, but for many beginners, the first classes can be daunting. Unfortunately, there are not many learning environments designed exclusively for absolute beginners, and most people are first exposed to the practice in an open level class with varying amounts of explanation from their instructors. I have taught many beginner students, and over the years, I have identified some of the principles that beginners can start to implement early in their practice to ease their transition into open level cla ..read more

by Elena Jacinta, a trauma-informed somatic practitioner at Rolfing & Wellness Collective Book Free Consultation w/ Elena We are in this together As much as we’d like to think of ourselves as independent and self-sufficient creatures, physiologically it’s not the case. This statement alone may trigger a lot of resistance, and understandably so. Knowing how interdependent we are may make us feel powerless, especially when others have no desire to consider our best interests. We may feel helpless, scared or angry. We may want to self-isolate and withdraw or, on the contrary, be proactive or ..read more

How to Get the Most From Your Rolfing® Ten Series

by Chelsey Kap

Rolfing is a combination of bodywork + client education that brings about lasting changes in pain, tension and posture over the course of 10 sessions. The effectiveness comes from a teamwork approach: what I do as the practitioner (reading the body, manual techniques, somatic techniques, etc.) and what you do as the client to integrate the work (engaging with the work in the spirit of exploration both during and outside of the sessions). This integrative element is key to co-creating lasting changes. We are not aiming for instant perfectionism but rather a genuine willingness to engage with t ..read more

Yoga for Scoliosis is the outcome of my own experience with scoliosis. Over the years,  scoliosis has revealed the contradictory character of my body. If I have learned anything from  this condition, it is that two things can be true.   There are many truths that I have to hold:   On one hand, I can have a manageable condition that does not usually expose itself, and on the  other, I can feel remarkably different than everyone else. My body can feel both restricted and extremely loose. I can be grateful that my curvature is mostly invisible in my day-to-day ..read more

Emotional Intelligence: Response Vs. Reaction
Rolfing & Wellness Collective Blog
by Chelsey Kap
1y ago
These beautiful NYC September days have made me particularly religious about my daily walks to the East River. Like, get out of bed, get dressed, grab a coffee, and out the door type of rhythm. On one of my recent walks, the question popped into my mind: “What is the difference between a response and a reaction?” That one took a while to percolate. Then, over (more) coffee with a friend yesterday, the subject came up again. He’s got a fiery constitution like I do, where our reactions to our environment and our emotional states tend to be fast and strong. Having just finished up a climbing ses ..read more
