Monthly Somatic Movement Intensive
1st Saturday of the month
with Jean Hindle, founder of Soma Yoga Studio
1st Saturday  2:30 - 4:30pm   $40   three consecutive workshops, $100
Freedom to Move, Freedom to Choose
A restorative & rejuvenating afternoon of somatic movement re-education.
Discover the amazing capacity of your nervous system for somatic releasing, resourcing and re-education.  
Somatic Movement Education re-awakens our inherent agility and expands our possibilities for moving effortlessly in all we do.  These slow, gentle movement explorations liberate us from layers of involuntary, habitual holding patterns.  Chronic tension patterns change as the body regains its innate ability to self-correct to ease and efficiency (neuromuscular re-patterning).  Change the way you move, change the way you live.  These movement awareness practices invite quiet mind, a deep unwinding and endless discovery.   This work stems from Somatic Unwinding, Hanna Somatics, the teachings of Moshe Feldenkrais, Alexander Technique, Skinner Releasing, developmental movement & my twenty five years as a somatic movement educator and dancer.

About Embodied Yoga
Embodied Yoga is an inquiry based yoga practice.  Embryological, anatomical and developmental principles will be introduced and applies to asana to cultivate more ease, understanding and possibility.  With an underlying focus, class will begin with a quiet, yielding practice into slow, mindful floor work as we prepare the body for quadruped and standing postures.  This practice is easeful and dynamic, offering a full range of movement from supine and prone shapes, to standing, sitting, forward folding and back bending.  Through skillful attending and deep listening, students are given the space and supportive guidance to enter into a yoga practice that is pleasurable, healing and transformative.  *Modifications and any necessary propping will be available to help meet individual needs.

About Body Mind Centering®
"Body Mind Centering® (BMCSM) is an integrated and embodied approach to movement, the body and consciousness.  Developed by Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, it is an experiential study based on the embodiment and application of anatomical, physiological, psychophysical and developmental principles, utilizing movement, touch, voice and mind.  Its uniqueness lies in the specificity with which each of the body systems can be personally embodied and integrated, the fundamental groundwork of developmental re-patterning and the utilization of a body-based language to describe movement and body-mind relationships." - Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen
