WINTER 6-Week 'SOMASANA' SERIES
Wednesdays, February 19 - April 1,2020
4-5:30pm in the Yoga Shala
Soma: The body as a living, breathing, always changing organism.
Somatics: A field of inquiry into the Soma which focuses on increasing internal awareness to both physical and mental perception of neuro-muscular feedback. Gentle Somatic movement sequences help to resolve chronically tight muscles and improve overall mobility. Somatics involves mind and body communication by improving the flow of neural pathways in the brain to break old habits such as poor posture and re-educating the body back to its original health.
Yoga: Yoga is a discipline to improve or develop one’s inherent power in a balanced manner. It offers the means to attain complete realization. The literal Sanskrit meaning is ‘to yoke’...the mind with the body, the individual self with collective consciousness, and the spirit with the universe. Yoga directly heals the fluctuations of the mind and brings balance to living life. Yoga is thousands of years old and has evolved in its transmissions through the ages.
SOMASANA: A fusion of Somatics and Yoga which offers a way to release postural tensions and body pain, and learning to connect with yourself and the universe more deeply to keep this ongoing process alive in your daily life.
