Upcoming Workshops

Somatic Workshops With Joanne

Do you sit for long periods at a desk or commute long distances by car?

Do you care for a sick relative or small children all day?

Are you a new mother, a cyclist, or a runner?

Normal Life activities can instil patterns in the body that cause pain and discomfort.

Somatics is a method of exercise that teaches your muscles to relax and stay in that relaxed state, enabling mobility with ease.  

As the student practices the exercise the brain communicates with the muscle to redevelop the natural movement pattern, making the amazing affects of this exercise fast and long lasting.

A pattern can develop in the body, resulting from an accident, an old injury, stress or trauma.  To cope with the injury or stress the body develops a habit and this can result in pain and discomfort.  Somatic exercise helps us to develop positive movement habits impacting the whole body, bringing a feeling of ease and lightness throughout.

The big rule is ‘No Pain = Way More Gain’.  Practicing the exercises in a range of 50% effort enables the student to maintain a quality practice and not a quantity focus.

The Somatic Exercise workshops are taught by Joanne Bredin a qualified Somatic exercise coach (from the Thomas Hanna Method).

We are also learning more about how the mechanical processes of nutrition and absorption are effected by both our physical state and our mental state.

Learn more about how we can use yoga to relax our nervous system and stimulate our digestive system and the interplay of both.

During this practical workshop you will practice breathing techniques to settle your nervous system, physical asanas to stimulate your nervous system and restorative poses to soothe your nervous system.
