Healing Yoga & Somatic Movement
The core intention of traditional Yoga is Union- bringing the mind, body and spirit into unison. Guided to this place of harmony we restore balance and perspective, we nurture our wellbeing and accelerate our healing.
Healing Yoga is an uplifting rejuvenation of our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual being. Healing Yoga focuses on the holistic person and incorporates breathwork, meditation, self-compassion practices with Yoga asana, Somatic Movement and wellbeing coaching for optimum effect.
This movement pratice that requires awareness as we slowly heal inefficient mechanical/ movement patterns the body has developed through habit, injury or chronic pain.
Somatic Movement Lessons are an education as opposed to a passive treatment. It educates the sensory motor system to recover innate abilities for greater voluntary muscular control. It helps release chronic neuromuscular contraction patterns and limited range of movement. Somatic Education aims to improve function as function maintains structure.
As we age certain muscle groups become less efficient through lack of use or bad habit. When we cannot control muscles as well as we used to this is known as neuromuscular amnesia. The only way to improve this is through active awareness and kinaesthetic perception of the muscles and a relearning of how to effectively coordinate their movements. This is our focus in a Somatic Movement Lesson.
Somatic Movement Lessons can be facilitated at home or by clinic visit. Specific exercies will be reccommended for the client’s daily practiceto improve ease and range of movement in the body.
