Self Care with Somatic Movement


Learn to use the greatest most complex technology available - Your Brain. Train your brain to change your body - Move less, experience more with a simple somatic education mind /body programme.

Our body and mind are not separate entities, but a whole unified system, Somatic movement addresses both psychological factors and the body's complex physiological response to the build-up of everyday stress responses in our daily life. Learning to focus on the sensory experience can help minimise the startle (stress) response and encourage the nervous system back to normal functioning, releasing the build-up of neuromuscular tension. When we are working from awareness in our own body we offer a deeper connection to ours and others Somatic experience without verbal communication.


What are the benefits of doing this course?

When we are working from awareness in our own body we offer a deeper connection to our own and other’s somatic experience without verbal communication. This course will help you to identify and target specific areas relating to the body’s response to stress. You will have an opportunity to learn and practice techniques to relieve stress and tension patterns held in the body, including breathing techniques to increase awareness and improve the function of the breath.


What will you learn?

This programme teaches you to recognise and track somatic experiencing and deepen sensory awareness, learning to listen more to our body and integrating the body/mind connection. This is a safe, gradual, gentle integration awareness practice. This experiential weekend can become part of your ongoing self-care programme that enables you to enhance your self-management and self-soothing skills which encourage and maintain your equilibrium. For those working in the caring professions, which takes its toll on our minds and bodies, it is important to develop a self-care practice to build resilience and combat compassion fatigue.

This course is for anyone interested in engaging the brain to change your body through somatic movement - theory, practice, recognising and releasing neuromuscular tension from the muscles in the stomach and back and waist. Focused Breathing. Self-Sensing. No prior experience necessary. Loose clothing, mat and blanket required.
