Somatic Meditation: An Introduction

An introduction to guided meditation practices that tune into the basic awareness of the body focusing on internal sensations, feelings, and visualization.

Bring a yoga mat, blanket, large towel, and a pillow/bolster for under your knees.

The Myth Of Aging Series
Postponed until Fall

When our bodies start to feel stiff, sore or tired, we often say, “we’re getting old”. But is that really the problem? Thomas Hanna’s approach to sensory re-education proves that much of the physical decline associated with aging is not inevitable but avoidable. This series will teach you how to take back conscious control of your nervous system and muscles, reversing the physical effects of aging – or preventing them before they begin. Developing a daily practice with these movements will keep you feeling more youthful and enable you to enjoy the activities you love for longer. Please wear warm, comfortable clothing. Bring a yoga mat, blanket, and large towel.

Gentle Somatic Yoga

Next Date TBD in May

A style that blends together Somatic Education (in the tradition of Thomas Hanna), yoga and meditation. The practice fosters deep awareness of bodily sensations, co-ordination and proprioception from the inside out. Somatic Education is like giving your brain a software update. It teaches you how to free yourself from habitual stress responses and unhealthy holding patterns that inhibit your potential for free and easy movement. It helps reverse chronic muscular pain by going to the root and affecting change at the central nervous system. The slow, mindful movement patterns will challenge your habits, and increase your awareness of self. Other benefits include improved posture, mobility, co-ordination, balance and stress resilience.
