Introduction to Somatic Movement
Saturday, Sept 10: 2:00-4:00 pm
What Really is Somatics? Somatics is a buzzword that we throw around a lot in the yoga, fitness and movement world. Join Somatic Educator and Yoga Therapist Samantha Ewashko to understand more clearly what this word means and how to integrate it into your life. Somatics is associated with body-mind practices like yoga, tai chi, dance and more, but are those practices truly somatic? Not always. This workshop will include an experiential & educational portion that accesses the body to dive deep into the realms of our innate wisdom and healing powers.
