Somatics…teaching day today…

Somatics is neuro-muscular re-education of tight, restricted body parts; using small, slow movements. By moving in small, mindful movements, the brain becomes re-educated and the movement pattern can then be controlled and areas can then be released. Somatic education helps relieve poorly functioning muscle patterns brought on from over work, injuries, stress, aging, etc. Improving the function to targeted areas brings a greater range of motion that translates into more functionality in all aspects of daily life. Better yoga, better cycling, better riding…better life!

You can’t stretch a muscle by pulling on it! Somatics is the way to lengthen and release tight body parts!!!

My somatics week continues today with teaching. This week of Gentle Somatic Yoga is really a Somatic lab. There are so many amazing teachers attending this week and we are being led by an outstandingly thoughtful, mindful leader James Knight. James is leading this group of voracious learners into the world of somatics by exploring the principals, the theory and the movements. And then, in our teaching sessions, continuing the exploration and making them our own.

So today is my teaching day and I think I’m ready… ❤
