Relaxation, Integration & Meditation

Classes of Somayoga focus specifically on bringing together Hatha Yoga, Somatic Movement Intelligence & Somatic Experiencing. These classes are excellent for addressing accumulated stresses in everyday life, and for helping those aware of their trauma history. This is a trauma sensitive movement and meditative practice with an emphasis on creating a more regulated nervous system. We will focus on the inner felt sense, tracking the subtle variations of movement from within the space of the body.

All classes are a gentle exploration through primal movement patterns, natural breath, 'the great pause', somatic inquiry and meditation. Exploring the principals of gravity, realtionships of parts, fixed & flowing, the wave, axis, tone, rhythm, oscillation, spirals, and the mother of all movement, pulsation. A unique characteristic of Movement Intelligence is the gentle vibrational pressure streaming through our entire bodies from end to end, with 'every step we take, every move we make'.

Classes are meditative, spacious and full of somatic inquiry and curiosity providing new options of movement. This approach is kind and gentle to the whole being, building new synapses in the brain-body creating a more resilient nervous system specifically supporting the Healing of Trauma. 'Trauma' is defined by Peter Levine as 'an interruption in the flow of life…'. These classes move towards restoring natural resiliency.

Private One to One Sessions in Somayoga, Movement Intelligence & Somatic Experiencing ( SEP):

These private 1:1 sessions focus on the innate ability for regulation of our own unique nervous system. With the gentle guidence and support of Somatic Experiencing we slowly explore with curiosity what is arising moving towards the healing of traumatic symptoms.

 "Traumatic symptoms are not caused by the event itself. They arise when residual energy from the experience is not discahrged from the body. This energy remains trapped in the nervous system where it can wreck havoc on our bodies and minds." Peter Levine

Trauma, 'an interruption in the flow of life…' these classes provide a simple gentle moving practice towards restoring natural resiliency.
