Somatic – ‘the mind/body interface, the relationship between our physical matter and our energy, the interaction of our body structures with our thoughts and actions.’
Somatic Stress Release is a holistic approach that recognizes the complex layering of each individual’s relation to stress. Stress manifests itself in each person’s body differently. Understanding this unique body response allows each person to process and navigate the intricate layers of stress. One of the most effective pathways towards that awareness and negotiation is through feeling a deeper sense of and connection with the body-mind, an approach called somatics.
In this somatic approach there is a recognition that we engage with others and the world through sensations and movement. As stress is something experienced and expressed through the body, a somatic or body-focused approach can more quickly address habitual responses to internal and external stressors.
Within this workshop we will learn more about stress and how we can deal with it in a practical way everyday. We will use movement and meditation to address and move through stress. Expect free movement and the chance to move intuitively to unwind and unpack stress and in turn lead us to a place where we can manage stressors when they begin to take over.
