Hatha Yoga and Somatic Movement
Yoga is the Art of moving the body, mind and breath in a way that it transforms and heals us from the imbalances and stresses of daily life. The word Yoga is derived from the Sanskrit root ‘Yuj’ which means ‘to join’ or ‘to bind’. My teaching focuses on Hatha Yoga, the classical Asanas(postures) of a Yoga practice and within this is woven Breathe-Awareness and Meditation. Hatha Yoga includes dynamic weight-bearing sequences with emphasis on fluidity and precision. These sequences strengthen bone and muscle and bring feelings of joy, lightness and space to the body.
Somatic Movement provides the yin style restorative quality which complements dynamic Yoga. It helps heighten the body-mind connection by developing sensory awareness and wakefulness. These sequences are floor based and non-weight bearing. As a result they serve to mobilise joints and provide myo-fascial release. Somatic Movement works directly with the energy of the subtle body and re-aligns the two sides of the body. As a result of this, it is especially beneficial to those suffering from fatigue, stress, anxiety, and chronic back, neck and shoulder pain. Somatic Movement prepares the body for the more Dynamic Yoga postures, opens the breath and enhances the effect of Hatha Yoga.
This combination of Dynamic and Restorative Yoga helps to reset the body and support deep rest and healing. An intelligently sequenced yoga practice restores our bodies back to a place of balance and this physical well-being has a strengthening and calming impact on the mind.
Benefits of Yoga:
- Restful relaxed breathing
- Increased strength, vitality and tone in musculature of body
- Increased flexibility and mobility in connective tissue and joints
- Deeper more restful sleep
- Reduction in stress through combining of breath with movement
- Increased levels of attention and focus
- Creates a space in the day for taking care of yourself
