Somatic practice developed out of my love of yoga, meditation, Kum Nye and self development. It is a practice based on moving slowly in unfamiliar ways, with awareness, less effort and more pleasure.
This kind of movement allows the body to release life-long patterns of tension and restriction. The somatic organism knows how to move in a pain-free, graceful way. By waking it up to unhealthy movement patterns, which over the years have become fixed in the unconscious part of the brain, somatic practices will naturally unravel them.
There seems to be no end to the improvement possible. It has the ability to transform your practice of yoga, surfing, pilates, walking etc.
It has been said the every pattern of muscular tension has an ego profile, a psychological strategy by which the being disconnects and protects itself. In the journey back to wholeness, somatics cultivates an open, trusting, connected way of moving – which in turn facilitates a more open and connected way of living
Somatic practice is possible for anyone. It does not depend on a particular level of fitness or flexibility. This is part of its beauty.
