Precious Movements Live: A Wellness Workshop for Jewelers

Your alignment at the bench impacts how you feel! So many of the Jewelers I work with complain of neck pain and strain. Can you relate?! This doesn’t come as a surprise to me because most jewelers aren’t taught how to sit or stand well while working in the studio. Did you know that your movements can actually retrain your body to create strength in areas that might be lacking? You deserve to know more. That’s why I am hosting a live wellness event specifically for jewelers! 

This live event will be hosted on Zoom. The workshop will be a mix of lecture and movement followed by a Q&A. Get ready to learn the best sequence to practice in your studio to help you find relief in your hands, wrists, and forearms, strengthen tired areas in your back, neck, and shoulders and leave feeling great! 


Have questions about your studio practice? 

Schedule an "Ask Missy" 1:1 Session. This session allows us to have a more in-depth conversation about your studio practice(s). You will have the opportunity to show me the way that you work and ask your questions over zoom. I will evaluate and deconstruct your movements patterns and processes that are causing you strain in the studio. We will discuss ways to create more longevity in your body.

Sessions will take place over Zoom. A scheduling link will be sent to you after purchase in order to select a time slot that works best for you.


Join the Immersion

Each week we will focus on a different area of the body, starting with the feet and ankles! You will receive access to a library of recorded short videos at the start of each week. Move at your own pace and then each week we will meet as a group to check in, ask questions, and go over the course content. These weekly check ins will help you stay motivated and on track. 

By the end of the course, you will have a complete "toolkit" and a more well-developed understanding of your body that will leave you feeling empowered and inspired to keep creating. You will gain a deeper understanding of what’s happening in the body when our posture fails us, when our backs give out, when we develop knots, or experience tension in the wrists and forearms.

Walk away with the skills you need to build strength and mobility in the studio through safe movements, corrective exercises, strengthening techniques, massage techniques, stretches, and posture check-ins.
