WHAT IS SOMATICS?
Read what people are saying about Somatics:
http://www.mind-body-movement.co.uk/testimonials

Somatics (in the tradition of Thomas Hanna) is a mindful movement modality based in neuroscience. The target of the practice is the nervous system. A key element is awareness, both of movement and sensation, so the sensory and motor maps of the body in the brain receive beneficial reorganization. We also teach 'pandiculation' - a nervous system reset for a more comfortable resting muscle length without stretching.

The movements taught are designed to re-stimulate areas of common 'sensory motor amnesia' in the body. Sensory motor amnesia is a somatics term to describe those hard-to-reach areas that have become tight/stiff, seem in constant need of stretching or are inhibited and lack movement. They are no longer under the full control of the brain and are unable to contract and relax in the full range. Somatics helps to bring these areas back on line.

It's relaxing, it's interesting and it's pleasurable.

Refreshments and lunch with vegan options included.
Participants will also be sent materials to aid home practice.
