Somatic Awareness: Tides, Fluids, and Flow | Online 2-Part Workshop

March 9

REGISTER HERE


This in-depth professional training involves somatic tracking skills for oneself, one’s clients or students. In this immersion, we develop a capacity for inquiry, witnessing, somatic resonance, and relational dialogue. We focus on refining our perceptual skills (interoception) in order to become more fluent in our capacity to sense and feel inside.

All practices aim to connect us back to our inherent potency (shakti) and to uncover the creative vitality within each one of us. Rather than learning postures from the “outside in”, we emerge from the inside out, sensing inherent movement and identifying barriers to flow. Through sound and visualization we explore way to support the autonomic nervous system within our nerves, glands, blood vessels and organs.

It is essential as we age to stay fluid in both mind and body. In this practice we sense into the quality of flow in our bloodstream, lymph channels, spine and extracellular fluid. We develop a capacity for inquiry, witnessing, fluid resonance, and relational dialogue. We focus on refining our perceptual skills (interoception) in order to become more fluent in a capacity to sense and feel the tidal pulse of fluids. All practices aim to connect us back to our inherent potency (shakti) and to uncover the creative vitality within each one of us.

Through movement, stillness, sound and visualization, we explore way to support the autonomic nervous system within our nerves, glands, blood vessels and organs.

Hosted by YogaCampus, London UK.


Part 1: From Sacrum to Skull

In this segment we explore the dynamic balance between the two poles of the spine, the sacrum and the occiput. Many yoga poses and vinyasa itself serve to balance the motion between these two. In this immersion we explore movements that connect the sacrum and sacral nerves to the brainstem within the skull. We will focus on movements that benefit the fluid dynamics within the spine, spinal cord and inter-vertebral discs.

 

Part 2: The Arms, Neck, and Jaw

In this segment we explore ways to release accumulated tension in the jaw by mobilizing the arms and shoulders. We focus on mandibular tension that is a result of dental work, neck pain and stress. With somatic movements, yoga postures and mudras, we open the jaw and irrigate blood and lymph throughout the neck.
