Employing somatic principles during the exploration of yoga asana, Somatic Yoga cultivates a deeper sense of body awareness,
allowing us greater ease in movement, and comfort in being in our bodies. Sharpen your reflexes, get in touch with your inner infant, introduce your head and tail, and awaken your senses as we look at traditional yoga poses. Through meditation, imagery, breath and an open sense of curiosity, we will excavate our bodies from the inside out; relying on developmental patterns inherent in our own body/mind make-up to guide us to a greater understanding of our relationship to yoga. This class is both a launching point for novice students and a deeper exploration for advanced students.
