Somatic Stress.jpg

30. June - 2. July 2023

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 release tension and stress using this gentle way of movement.

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 our bodies and movement. Working with Somatic Yoga, Somatic Movement en TRE (Tension Release Exercises) we will guide you in finding new ways of connecting to your body.

This weekend is part of our Year Program

Our Year Program consists of four weekend retreats at the beautiful retreat center Kura Waka in Roodeschool. Each weekend can be booked separately or you can join us for the whole program. Moving through each season we will work with the fact that we humans are part of nature and that we move and live in cycles and seasons. Every season has its own rhythm, qualities and intentions. If we are able to connect ourselves more into these natural cycles, we are able to let life flow through us even more fluid. 

Every weekend will have its own theme, where the overall focus will be on ways of bringing awareness into our stress and release levels to gain information and to be able to transform if necessary. Because a lot of us carry more stress and tension inside then is healthy for us, which can have a negative effect on our overall health and our ability to enjoy life. In these weekends we will provide you with different tools to release stress from your system and to find more balance in everyday life.

Using body and breath we work with Breathwork, Somatic Yoga & Movement and Fascia Release. All of these are different methods that we can use to lower our stresslevels, optimize our breathing, to release tension from the body, create more mobility and freedom to move, to connect to our bodies more deeply, feel more at home in our bodies and support our overall health and wellbeing.
