Unfortunately poor postural habits, stress, trauma, surgery and re-injury often create patterns of tension - learn how to self-release tension in the back, neck, shoulders and hips using easy movements that can be incorporated into your existing exercise routine for your aches and pains.
In a Gentle Somatic Yoga® class we move through a range of whole body movements and muscle release techniques to assist with mobility in your everyday movements. Attending regularly can assist with letting go of long-held muscle tension, improve posture and strengthen and stabilise the lower back and Sacroiliac Joint
Come along to class to learn a 20 minute routine to do regularly, to relieve your aches and pains
"Living with an injury for 15 months, I thought I'd see how the somatic yoga impacted my body which needs a good overhaul. This will definitely not be my last class! It was amazing the subtle shifts that made way for movement. Thank you Susie!"

"Susie taught me a somatic yoga exercise last week to help relieve tension in upper body and neck. I can turn my head further now and pain level has reduced."
P. McN. Shorncliffe
“Susie also showed me a gentle somatic movement to help me work on releasing tension in the back of my neck and to treat my Plantar Fasciitis. The exercise has given me more movement in my neck and I feel a difference in plantar fasciitis for a while afterwards”.
L.M. North Lakes
“I experienced my first somatic yoga class yesterday with Susie, and I loved it! I feel great today and a niggling hip issue I had, has gone! The class is wonderfully paced, beautifully instructed and I felt safe and supported. I will be back for more!”
Pamela, Yoga Teacher
“Thank you so much for the class last Sunday. I enjoyed it so much and the time seemed to fly and what is more I felt so relaxed afterwards that I slept for 3 hours in the afternoon (a very rare occurrence).”
“the bodily decrepitude presumed under the myth of ageing is not inevitable. It is, by and large, both avoidable and reversible. I know this to be true, because
I have seen it occur thousands of times…”
