Our body tissues absorb our whole living experience whether it is the food we eat, the way we exercise or the stress of our everyday lives. The body keeps the score… It’s no wonder we encounter discomfort and dis-ease.
Using small somatic movements along with meditation and breathwork, this workshop will help address these imbalances. Somatic postures are used as a means to increase strength and flexibility, as well as heightening our ability to listen to deeper nerve pulsations and flows within the body.
The movements help to cultivate inner listening and heighten awareness in the body’s innate intelligence. By increasing our capacity for sensory awareness, we become more sentient, wakeful beings in the world.
What to Expect
All the movements are done on the floor in a flowing fashion, without force. The exercises are non-weight bearing and involve sliding, gliding and circular movements to reduce myo-fascial holding in the body.
A recording of a practice will be available 48 hours after the event so that students can practice in the comfort of their home. Self-reflection and journaling will be [gently] encouraged for students to record their observations and discoveries.
The workshop will empower students to take somatic practices into their daily lives to use as a support mechanism.
Who’s it For?
No restrictions, all levels and abilities are welcome to attend. Extremely useful to those who are looking at ways to deepen their bodies innate ability to heal and repair. Those experiencing fatigue, trauma, insomnia, restlessness, stress, distress would all gain benefit from attending.
