Do you have tightness in your neck or shoulders?
Come along and be guided through gentle, easy awareness-based Somatic Movements and explore ways to create more ease and freedom through the shoulders, upper back and neck.
Somatic Movement Education is a gentle, safe and highly effective way to end chronic pain, improve mobility and stability and relieve day-to-day stress. With Somatics, we always work holistically, using processes that re-educate the nervous system and help to restore functional movement. Through awareness and movement, you learn to sense, recognise and release habitual muscular tension and unwind their holding patterns in your body. As the muscles relax and lengthen, your mobility and strength increases, so you can enjoy normal activities in life with more pleasure and ease. This Somatic practice can help to soothe tight muscles, relieve stress and improve body-mind awareness.
Leave the workshop with less pain and physical tension, feeling relaxed in your body and mind.
This two hour workshop is led by Deirdre Mullins Somatic Exercise Coach, Clinical Somatic Educator and experienced Yoga teacher. She is passionate about sharing Somatic embodied practices which improve mobility, stability and function while also helping to relieve stress so we can all experience life more fully.
