Somatics

Somatics is a field within health which focuses on increasing internal awareness to both physical and mental perception or feedback. Gentle movement sequences are created to help break chronically tight muscles and improve mobility. Somatics involves mind and body communication by improving neural pathways in your brain to break old bad habits such as poor posture and re educate the body back to better health.

What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is a skill you can develop. It involves practices which require you to be fully present and focused on an activity or task. Developing the skill of mindfulness helps you to become less reactive and more responsive to events or experiences. Mindfulness is the key component used within the field of Somatics to accelerate your personal practice.
