Event Description

This Somatic Movement workshop will help greater freedom of movement through slow, mindful exercises which reeducate the brain and release chronic tensions in the body. Chronic contractions and excess tightness held in the body act like having the brakes on at all times. These unconscious behaviours, held in the brain, only become apparent when we begin to experience the long term effects in the body:

In a Yoga practise these chronic contractions and excess tensions can show up as difficulties such as limited forward folding, restriction in back bends, ease in rotating in one direction and difficulty rotating in the other.

This workshop offers a ‘re-boot’ for your ‘brain-body’ by providing you with the opportunity to retrain your neuromuscular system using somatic movement sequences.

This workshop is appropriate for all, regardless of general physical ability. The only requirement for attending is the ability to get down and up from the ground and to be able to lie on your front, back and/or sides for a period of time. Bring your own mat/cushion/blanket and any other props you may need to assist your comfort in lying and sitting on the floor.

David and Amanda are experienced Somatic Movement Educators. David is a Certified Clinical Somatic Educator and Amanda is a Certified Kinesiologist.

The price of the workshop is £50 paid in advance.
