Yoga Somatics and Mindfulness, 8 days, 15-18 June and 27-30 July
In this course, we will be exploring the principles of somatic movement, diving deep to see how adaption to life circumstances creates difficult movement patterns, difficult emotional patterns and unhealthy organ function. We will learn how to work with the body to restore natural movement in a safe effective way.
We will be studying musclo-skeletal anatomy and function in depth to understand how and why we do what we do, and why somatic exercises are so effective. We will be learning the principles of neuro-muscular reprogramming to understanding the interaction between the brain and the muscles.
The course incorporates Buddhist principles and practice, in particular, the foundation practices of mindfulness, Tibetan Kum Nye yoga exercises and the four Brahma Viharas; loving-kindness, compassion, sympathetic joy and equanimity.
We heal through the mind, the energy body and the physical body, and in this course, we will be exploring the different ways these bodies work and interact to restore health.
