Create more freedom in your mind, body and spirit through learning somatic principles of movement re-education. Bring awareness to what has been forgotten, change the patterns that perpetuate pain so that you can move through spring with ease.
A class combining Somatic Movement Techniques with gentle asana, mudras and mantra to welcome this change of season.
Through conscious, deliberate movement we reawaken our brain to unlearn what our bodies have maladaptively learned in our movement patterns and to remember what has been forgotten, to move with more ease and grace in our daily lives.
Explore functional movement in your body following the unique and pioneering work of Thomas Hanna, founder of Hanna Somatics. Learn the skill of pandiculation, and how to unravel tension in your muscles, breath and movement to support your yoga practice, favourite sports or daily activities.
What you will learn:
How to re-educate your muscles, releasing tension and pain.
That your muscles only listen to your brain.
That your Somatic Nervous System is what holds you in patterns of tension and pain.
How to PANDICULATE versus Stretch.
All levels welcome. No experience necessary.

Somatic Self Discovery - A three month program to let go of what limits you and embody what’s next.
It’s here. Join Tara Larkin and I for three mini retreats over three months to support a deep dive into what limits you. We will guide you through processes to release old patterns and rediscover the power that resides deep within to move towards what you want in life.
A 3 month program to let go of what limits you and embody what’s next.
Whether you are just getting the first inklings that something needs to shift in life, or you are mid transition to something new and exciting, your brain and body can work against you - holding you back from what you truly desire.
Habits of our body include the ways that we think, beliefs that we hold, and ways we get stuck into habits of movement - these patterns are ingrained in our somatic nervous system. This can keep us locked in fear and pain, stuck where we no longer want to be. Our brains and bodies become a storehouse of limiting thoughts, beliefs and actions. Often times these thoughts, beliefs and actions are so deeply embedded that they are unconscious. When this happens we don’t feel like we are in control of ourselves and we don’t understand what is keeping us stuck.
If you are feeling like it’s time for something new.
If you would like to find your way back to what is really important to you and embody it.
If you would like to move freely and feel ease and joy in your body.
If you want to see a clearer path forward and be confident in your decisions.
If you want to ditch the heaviness of expectations and come home to yourself.
If you are looking for change it’s time to dive in. This is an opportunity to examine your thoughts, fears and beliefs, let go of what no longer serves, and open up your mind and body in a new way.
Program begins April 13. Early Bird registration closes March 15.
