Yoga is first and foremost, a somatic practice to arrive into the present moment.What does that mean? Soma comes from a Greek word connoting “The Living Body” – pertaining to the consciousness of our living body, experienced and regulated from within. The practice of Somatic Yoga is thus a process of inquiry into how consciousness inhabits the living body.
Somatic Yoga brings together mindfulness through movement, meditation, breath work, visualisations and sounds to dive deep into our consciousness and our embodied biological processes. Through sensory-motor education we can also improve motor control, coordination, and change learned muscular patterns.
This approach to yoga is highly effective in relieving chronic pain, improving bodily function, and recovering from common musculoskeletal conditions.
