YOGA As Therapy – Yoga Somatics and Restorative – Healing the body-mind.
For anyone in recovery or with chronic illness, auto immune conditions or simply as a complimentary de stress to the world we live in. All in the comfort of your own home, equipment provided.
We will start with SATYA (Sensory Awareness Training for Yoga Attunement) is Prajna Yoga’s “yin” style practice. All the movements are done on the floor in a flowing fashion, without force. The SATYA movements cultivate inner listening and heighten proprioceptive awareness. This awareness is the body’s innate intelligence. The exercises are non-weight bearing and involve sliding, gliding and circular movements to reduce myo-fascial holding in the body.
We will cultivate essential sensory-motor awareness by experiencing small movements out of gravity. Movements that benefit the lower back, iliopsoas and spine. “It’s all about the joints”: working with the tendons, ligaments and joint spaces and the importance of not-doing, being able to step back from out busy lives and be in the ‘Pause’ of life and how gravity can be our friend. Thus helping to reduce body fatigue.
Our body tissues absorb our living experience whether it is the food we eat, the way we live or the stress of our everyday lives. It’s no wonder we encounter discomfort and dis-ease. This practice will allow us to pause and using small somatic movements along with meditation and breathwork, help address these imbalances.
Somatic postures are used as a means to increase strength and flexibility, as well as heightening our ability to listen to deeper nerve pulsations and flows within the body.
See SATYA 1 for more information of this wonderful yoga practice.
We will then move into a couple of restorative yoga postures supported so that the body can completely let go and release before ending in relaxation.
I teach on a 1-1 or 1-2 basis at your home. Contact me for more information/availability.
