Somatics Basics of Movement Classes – Thursdays 5.45pm

Sarah Stevens will be running her Somatics class to keep your moving more freely and painlessly. What does one learn in a Somatics class/workshop? Somatic education classes focus on your experience of your bodily senses. For example, “What do feel when you move that part of your body?” During each movement, you will bring attention to what it feels like to relax a muscle as well as which muscles are used in the movement. Keeping your attention on the sensations involved in the movement is a key component in gaining voluntary control over the sensory-motor system to more effectively engage and relax the muscles as necessary. You will be coached to make all movements slow, engaging their complete attention in the movement. To help maintain focus, most movements are done lying on the floor to take out the need to use one’s attention to balance freeing the mind to focus its attention solely on the movement. This makes the class accessible for most levels of physical ability. If you have further questions whether this class is appropriate for your needs, please contact me. Class sessions and workshops may vary in theme, but are designed to be part of a well-rounded curriculum
