Somatic Study Groups
This will be an online gathering for current and regular somatic explorers to dive deeper into the art, science and philosophy of what moves us. I've been inspired by my time online with many of you. I would like to continue building on these rich conversations with a group that meets weekly. It will go beyond the current weekly classes and include guest teachers and the option for private somatic work.
Wednesday group meets July 8, 15, 22, 29 $100.00
Thursday group meets July 16, 23, 30 and August 6th $100.00
30 minute private session during the course of the study group will be an additional $50.00

"Thank you for an absolutely transformative experience...I cannot
tell you how grateful I am for your gentle, grounded presence and teaching. I feel like a light has been thrown on inside me--like my spirit
and my body are at last holding hands".
Somatic movement classes are based on the work of Thomas Hanna. Learning to feel the tension your body holds unconsciuosly takes practice and thoughtful guidance in a safe space. Once you begin to sense and feel your body from a new perspective, one of full awareness, consciously, you are on the way to teaching your brain a new pattern of movement. This is how you learn to release your specific pattern of habituation and pain, at the level of the brain. Somatics helps to bring our unconscious patterns of tightness and holding to our conscious awareness, then we can make lasting changes.
