The coronavirus pandemic has changed all of our lives in so many ways. Zero Balancing classes are no exception.

In order to register for this class, you will need to have read and agreed to the Covid In Class Protocols and Guidelines and the Covid Risk and Liability Waiver.

Zero Balancing I is the first half of the Core Zero Balancing program and the first course of the Core Zero Balancing curriculum. ZB I introduces you to the technique, theory, touch skills and history of the art and science of Zero Balancing. In these hands-on workshops, you will learn how to perform Zero Balancing sessions and experience what it feels like to receive a Zero Balancing session. 

The instructor will deliver clear presentations and demonstrations of Zero Balancing evaluations and techniques, along with a detailed study guide to inform your ongoing practice.  

You will learn: 

  • A basic treatment protocol that addresses the whole body in about 30 minutes  
  • Theory and principles of ZB 
  • To distinguish body energy and body structure through touch 
  • The skill of using energy as a working tool 
  • The energetic anatomy of the skeleton 
  • The theory and application of Zero Balancing techniques called fulcrums ? How to give a ZB session that addresses the whole body 

What Participants say about ZB I: 

“This work will enhance my ability to treat many clients on a much deeper level, especially my MS clients who need deep but not hard connections.” -Mary Jane Edge 

“Using the understanding of touching structure and energy at the interface will be helpful in all my work – as a nurse and in my bodywork practice.” -Sandra Denner, RN 

“I needed to hear the concept of interface and clarity of presence and energy! I feel my work will be refocused and re-energized!” -Cathy Schneider 

“This course has completely changed my view and perspective of my practice.” -Alan Willoughby 

“I feel the structure and energy [of Zero Balancing] will help get some patients past a plateau I have reached with massage.” -Chris Wilson

We are delighted you’ll be joining us for ZB classes at Prairiewood’s this year.
For class questions, contact Ty Romijn.
For lodging/meal questions, contact Morgan Rivers (contact details below).
FYI, Prairiewoods is in what they call “Phase 3” of opening up after the pandemic.
You can read more about that here:
If you haven’t been to Prairiewoods before, see the description at the bottom of this newsletter and check out their website:
This is a “residential” class, in that participants can stay on site and have meals if they wish.  Commuters are also welcome, and, some choose to stay in nearby hotels.
This year, I (Morgan) am gathering the reservations and payments for lodging and meals ahead of time.

There are a limited # of rooms in the guest house available to us, which will be reserved on a first-come-first served basis, so … if you wish to stay at Prairiewoods, let me know asap.
Each room has 2 twin beds and shares a bathroom with the adjoining room.
They are 55/night. 
If you wish to double up, it’s tight quarters, but would only be 40/person/night. 
You need to communicate the following:

  • Which nights you want to stay
  • Whether you want a single room or, wish to have a roommate  (You can specify, or, I will assign randomly if there are others with the same wish)
  • Whether you are vaccinated
    •  Note:  Prairiewoods’ rules under Phase 3 specify that unvaccinated people cannot share a bathroom.  This means, we would only be able to use one of the rooms and have to leave the other empty.  So, these rooms will be reserved as available.   It will depend upon how many reservations we end up with ~ we will know in September.
Meals are served in the training facility where the classes are held
  • Breakfast:  $7
  • Lunch:  $9
  • Dinner: $9
I need to know:
  • Which meals you want to reserve
    • Note*  Prairiewoods asks that you reserve only meals you actually plan to eat.   They are very eco-conscious and really dislike wasting food.
  • Dietary needs ~ they do their best to accommodate
  • Note* Saturday lunch will most likely be a community-building time, so I would recommend reserving that one for sure if you want to be a part of it.

When I get your info, I’ll send you your total.
I will need a check made out and sent by September 15th to:
Morgan Rivers
1340 NW 105th Pl
Clive, IA 50325
Once we get this structure in place, we can all sink into the energy of the classes and the unique space of learning and high regard that ZB classes offer. 
Let me know if you have further questions.
Best Regards,
Morgan Rivers for the ZB Team
