Weekend Workshops


Move into Calm

Saturday, October 10th


Gentle, easy somatic movement has a powerful and lasting effect on our overactive nervous system.  We can have an experience of feeling whole, as a living system with our intuitive or body sense awake and our overactive mind quiet and calm. This workshop is ideal for you if...

  • you struggle to relieve stress and tension

  •  find it difficult to notice the early stress signals or pain signals

  • have a hard time with meditation

Walking and Standing in Power, Not Pain

Saturday October 17th


Once we learn to walk and run toward the things we desire in life, we can play, be creative and have fun until this function is interrupted or restriction by pain. We'll learn to restore the function of standing, walking and running the somatic way. Making these basic human movements freer, more powerful and fun. Experience a new easeful relationship to gravity. .
