In this class we use slow, mindful movements to achieve powerful effects in terms of strength, flexibility, and holistic integration of body and mind. With somatic education being the basis for these lessons, we practice functional movements of daily life, such as walking efficiently, getting up and down from the ground and improving one’s posture in sitting or standing.
You can expect in a class to walk, stand, and lie on the floor in a variety of comfortable positions: either on your back, front, or side. The teacher guides students through a sequence of movements, encouraging them to move with gentle attention within a comfortable range. You may become aware of unexpected and interesting connections within and between the movements. As you attend to the improving quality of movement, unnecessary muscular tensions throughout the body can reorganize and release. Students are often amazed at the quick and clear changes that occur through the neuromuscular repatterning that happens in a Somatics based class.
