Relieve Deep Stress: Use the Somat to find calm, focus, and ease
October 27, 2019 @ 6:15 pm - 8:15 pm$45
Join Chiara for an extended exploration with the Somat – a specially designed self-care tool
that promotes alignment and relieves deeply held stress as the spine decompresses,
thinking slows, and your nervous system settles down.
The Somat offers support and feedback for your back and relieves tension. The practice
features slow, organic sequences that focus on the spine and the rhythm of the breath,
settling parasympathetic responses, and easing stress. Once in sync on the Somat, you’ll
land in a sensory experience that strays from the physical into the psychological and
emotional. In this state, you’ll reset the regenerative mechanisms of your nervous system,
become attuned to your body’s messages, and experience less stress all around.
Open to all levels, this workshop is a good choice for practitioners looking to slow down
their practice, and find more ease in their back, neck, shoulders, and hips, and move into a
peaceful meditative state. All physical abilities are welcome.
Students are invited to bring their own Somat (available for purchase at 8 Limbs – Phinney
Ridge) or use one provided by the instructor. Please bring a yoga mat.
