Summer Somatic Movement Reterat
2023 - 30.06 t/m 02.07
Somatic Movement is a gentle approach to movement to raise body awareness. We will use this way of moving to explore our bodies in space and in relation to the floor. As humans walking on two feet, a lot of us have lost our relationship to the earth because our bodies are in so little contact with it. That's why we will focus this weekend on bringing our bodies back to the floor, back to the earth to explore how we can move with ease using the support of the floor.
Somatics is a field within bodywork and movement studies which emphasizes internal physical perception and experience. Focusing on your inner experience as you move and expand your internal awareness of your body. Not focussing on what your movements look like, but focussing on what it feels like. We will use this soft way of movement to release tension from the body, to relax our Psoas muscle, (which responds and holds on to stress) and to bring more softness and groundedness in to our bodies and movement.
