We all have a body and a nervous system.
When your nervous system is balanced, your brain and body can easily
experience states of calm, ease, balanced energy, balanced wellbeing and optimal health.
Somatic work is connecting with our body. Connecting to ourselves through the sensations in our body.
Somatic practices guide us into knowing our bodies. And into feeling our bodies in present time.
Somatic practices are about knowing we’re alive.
And that we’re always changing, and that we’re moving,
And sometimes we move and we’re moving AND doing, or we’re moving and we feel LATER.
But somatic practices guide us toward moving and feeling at the same time.
Guiding you towards being in your own personal experiences.
We’re noticing and sensing and being with ourselves.
How often do we take a chance to think about how our body systems are working for us?
People learn how to drive a car or ride a bike but most of us aren’t taught how to navigate our bodies or our emotions. In fact, for many of us, we learnt at a young age that our emotions made others uncomfortable, that we should apologise for crying or expressing anger, and that we’re “sensitive” if we express our emotions authentically.
Our emotions and our inner world affect the balance and health of our physical body, and our mind-body balance.
It’s something we can all benefit from knowing and learning about; how our body systems are connected, how our nervous system functions and how our brain and body are interconnected and always in communication with each other.
