Gentle Somatic Yoga(R) is a slow movement class based on the work of Thomas Hanna (Hanna Somatics), Frederick Matthias Alexander (The Alexander Technique) and Moshe Feldenkrais (The Feldenkrais Method). The specific movements can reduce pain, improve posture and increase range of movement.

REGULAR GENTLE SOMATIC YOGA(R) PRACTICE CAN

-Soothe joint and muscle pain caused by muscle tension

-Improve posture, mobility, balance + co-ordination

 

-Increase range of movement

-Regulate breathing which may help anxiety + respiratory issues

-Reduce the frequency of headaches + jaw tension

-Relieve plantar fasciitis

-Boost circulation

-Calm the nervous system + slow down an overactive mind

-Create new neural pathways in the brain

-Teach you how to self-treat chronic tightness + tension

Classes are self-paced in terms of physical effort. Because this style is slow and gentle, it suits

 -Everyone and anyone!

 

-Adults recovering from injury or with chronic mild pain

-Those with auto immune diseases including Fibromyalgia, Arthritis and Chronic Fatigue

-People keen to improve their health, wellbeing, range of movement and flexibility

-Anyone wanting to take control of chronic muscle tension, headaches, pain, plantar fasciitis, frozen shoulder and more

-Those that wake up stiff and sore and would like to feel younger in their bodies again
