What Are Somatics Anyway?
Somatic practices are a method to experience your body from the inside out. These gentle and simple practices are a way to re-educate your body to move with ease and efficiency, re-connecting places of mis-connection in the body-mind system.
While there are some standing and seated movements, many of these movements are performed on the floor on a yoga mat, requiring very little else in terms of props/tools. You may have run into some of these practices in the warmup portion of your yoga class!
How might you benefit from learning somatics?
- release the patterns our bodies create in response to stress
- reduce pain, including chronic back, neck and shoulder pain
- ease stiffness and foster flexibility
- allow the body to relax more deeply
- be empowered to help yourself feel better
In the first session of classes this fall the Body Ease Somatics class is happening online on Tuesdays 1-2pm, starting Sept 8 until Oct 13.
You are encouraged to make time to attend the session ‘live’ so that I am able to give you direct feedback. If however, you cannot make it at 1pm the classes will be recorded and available to download/save for a limited time.
