Looking For Fresh Ideas For Your Somatic Movement Practice?

Learning something new is exciting and starting a regular somatic movement practice is no different. You feel good, you move better and life is just that bit rosier. But what happens if you get stuck? Maybe after a while your practice no longer feels as effective as it once was, or there’s a pattern that you just can’t figure out. It can be frustrating.

We get it. We’ve been there too and what we found worked was to get an injection of new and fresh ideas.

So join an Online Workshop to get out of your head and into your body. Connect with others, ask your questions and get a boost for your own practice. 

Practising clinical somatic education in a class

From Lying Down to Sitting and Standing

You don’t always need to lie on the floor to feel the benefits of Somatic Movement! Learn to release neck, back, or hip pain, improve posture, sit more easily, reach, and twist with simple seated and standing movements you can do at work (or even standing in the line at the grocery store).

Great for those who have difficulty getting up from the ground, experience discomfort on a yoga mat, or those who just want to learn in a different medium!

How to Prepare

You’ll need a quiet space with enough room to lie on the floor and move your arms and legs freely. You may wish to. usea yoga mat or rug to lie on.

The workshop will be hosted on zoom so you will need a computer, laptop or tablet device in order to connect to the workshop. Please check that you have a working camera and microphone if you wish to be seen and participate in the discussions. Position your camera so the instructor can see as much of you lying down as possible. 

Wear loose, comfortable clothing (no jeans, skirts, or dresses) that is easy to move in, as this is a movement-based workshop.

If you wish to take notes bring paper and pen.

You Might Still Be Wondering…

I don't have a lot of movement experience. Is that okay?

Absolutely. This course is open to all ages and backgrounds. Anyone who wants to learn how to feel better and move their body pain-free is welcome.

I have scoliosis. Is this appropriate for me?

Yes. You will be guided to go slowly and gently. You may find that smaller movements are best for beginning to address the muscle tension inherent in scoliosis. We will show you what to do so it works well for you and your needs.

Do I have to get down on the floor?

Most of the movements will be done on the floor. There may be some seated segments but there will always be some lying down too.

What type of payment do you accept?

We accept credit cards and Apple Pay using PayPal and Stripe.

Are these movements guaranteed to work for me?

Like anything in life, you have to put in the time and effort to experience results consistently. While the methods and movements you will learn are not a magic pill, most people walk away feeling better than they have in years.
