This program guides your team with practical, mind-body-somatic tools and experiences to refine their personal 'fitness' practice – their personal Creative Flow process. 



Performance Work Cycles 



This program invites you to prepare for your daily challenges as you would train for a sporting event, a fitness or yoga class, a  meditation retreat, a theater performance, or public speaking event.  Train the mind and the body.


Building upon the principles of exertion/recovery from sports training, this program introduces the concept of 'micro-fitness', an innovative tactic for you to use multiple times a day to support your focus, performance, relationships and wellness.  It is a brief bundle of techniques, 10 to 30 seconds or longer, that activate and align your mind and body to the task at hand - whether it is a creative, analytical, relationship, or logistic task. Specifically, these techniques counter-act the effects of excess stress that disrupt your capacity to function. 


The micro-fitness techniques are implemented into performance work cycles.  A work cycles is a 24 hour rhythmic process of work/exertion and recovery.  The innovative tactics of this program help you work smarter, stay more connected with your team, and stay more healthy.


These skills and methods are drawn from a wide range of disciplines, including:


Mind-Body, Somatics, Brain Science,Meditation, Humor and Play, Sports & Fitness, Massage & Bodywork,

Integrated Health & Wellness,Art & Humanities.



Avoiding Analytical and Technology Stress


The speed and pressure of business often causes excess mental, analytical stress.  People get frozen to their screens and keyboards. This creates ergonomic stress patterns; hands become claws on the keyboard, eyes become fixated, and the neck and shoulders go into pain. People can get stuck in over-thinking and excess precision.  Social relationship skills often are detrimentally effected. Long term this is detrimental to productivity.  This program helps build resilience skills to prevent and unlock and transform these stress patterns into creative potential.

Interoception and Interogenesis Tactic




A center piece of this ‘Psycho-Physiology Fitness’ program is the use of interoception and interogenesis principles.  These are core principles of the psycho-physiology model of this program.


Interoception is the human ability to perceive our internal felt sense, such as our mood or our sense of stress.  

Interogenesis is to actively generate an internal signal/force to create a mood, or behavior, or expression.



These principles, combined with other elements of anatomy and physiology, create a novel psycho-physiology, mind-body, process for performance, inquiry, innovation, creative flow, and creative expression.

Unique Integration:  Mind-Body Skills Enhanced by Massage
The curriculum supports the participant to have an inner experience of these skills to create a state of being.  Then, the participants are invited to integrate the new skills with an onsite massage.  This embeds the skills into the background of their behavior.

Sample implementation:
  1. Participants attend an experiential, skill building workshop.
  2. Participants are invited to receive a table (not chair) massage.
  3. In the massage session,  the new skills are reinforced using a guided mind-body relaxation and awareness process (optional).
  4. At their next massage,  the participant's progress implementing the skills are discussed. This coaching process helps embed the skills into long term behavioral practices.
