Taste of Somat – Weekly Class
May 16, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 5:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating indefinitely
Tuesdays | 5:00-6:00pm
Take an hour to nurture your whole self during this ongoing Somat class. Each week, Chiara leads breath and movement sequences on the Somat designed to calm your nervous system, quiet your muscles and decompresses your spine. The sequences are slow, organic and fluid, focusing on the spine and the rhythm of the breath. Effects include a settling of parasympathetic responses and easing of stress, as well as alleviation of neck, spine and hip complaints. 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 more ease all around.
Open to all levels, this class is a good choice for folks looking to slow down, connect deeply with their bodies and beings, and move into a peaceful meditative state. All physical abilities are welcome.
Cost: $10-$20. You’re welcome to pay what you can during these challenging times.
Chiara will send a Zoom link to registered participants 30 minutes prior to class:

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.
