I am loving her talk, thank you!
I am glad that I took the time to watch and listen, and get a glimpse of the wisdom that Mary Bowen offers! Even though I can not fully share some thoughts on "men and woman", I get the point and see it more as the feminine and male principles in all of us. But besides that I definitely took advantage of the thoughts on "holding", - tension in the muscles and tissue and in our mind. I will work with the Yawning! It already helped me freeing up my neck! Thank you so much and all the best to Mary!
Love the yawning and melting of tension.
Chewing with the tongue and yawning: simple exercises but they are wonderful ways to release the muscles of the neck and shoulders. I have tried them on myself!
Excellent loved listening to Ms. Bowen, so much knowledge and wisdom a true guru,
Thank you.
