Relieve Deep Stress
December 6 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Use the Somat to find calm, focus, and ease
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 use their own Somat, if they have one, or they can purchase one for delivery prior to the workshop. BUY YOUR SOMAT NOW.
If you don’t own or cannot afford a Somat right now, no worries. Please plan to have ready a yoga blanket or two (two large beach towels or other blankets will do the trick), a small cushion for your head, a set of two yoga therapy balls or two tennis balls in a sock, and a theraband, yoga strap, or the belt from a bathrobe or long scarf you don’t mind using for your practice.
Participants will receive a Zoom link one day prior to the workshop, as well as a reminder 15 minutes before class time.
