Sensory Somatic Movement for Teachers and Students

 November 16, 2019   10am - 5pm  with Ali Dyer

“Enrich your teaching by resetting your ability to move pain-free and without habituated muscle tension”

This one-day experiential workshop will explore the body’s innate ability to heal and restore through self-enquiry of the body-mind pathways. Discovering how simple movement practices help release long-held physical and emotional tensions, you will experience how these movements rebalance muscle memory and calm the nervous system.

Practising mainly floor-based exercises, you’ll experience what it means to move somatically, and discover the freedom of non-prescriptive form and function.

  • Gently exploring how deeply held tension inhibits primary movement patterns, and how to rebalance habitual posture patterns through mindful movement.
  • Covering the practicalities of how to weave somatic movements into sequences and class plans, ensuring students can experience the benefits of combining somatic movement with all asana work
  • Develop an understanding of the role of the nervous system, and the body’s stress response and release mechanisms

This workshop earns 6 CPD points.

Who is the workshop for?
The training will be of particular interest to all teachers and trainee teachers who are keen to support their own practice and their students with a fluid and free form approach suited to their own unique anatomy and inner landscape. Dedicated yoga students with a minimum of six months regular practice and health professionals (eg. Osteopaths, Psychomotor Therapists) keen to broaden their knowledge and skills (please note, this training wouldn’t certify you as a Sensory Somatic Movement Teacher).
