“Alana provides a great Somatics practice in her classes with the added bonus of breathing exercises each class. She is attentive to the individual needs of each of us. I leave feeling more relaxed in my mind, less tension in my body and more energy overall.”… Linda
I love reading how SomaYogis like Linda feel when they leave a Somatic Movement group class. This is why I LOVE sharing the classes!
It is always my intention to provide a class that creates a safe space for each and every participant to have this personal experience.
But how does that happen? Through engaging our sense of Interoception we explore movement that leaves us feeling relaxed and yet more energized.
We can place our attention on:
- Exteroception which is “what is going on around me?”
- Proprioception which is “where is my body in this space?” or
- Interoception which is “What do I sense and feel inside my body?”
Interoception is the focus of the Somatics Practice.
When I am doing my own personal practice, I feel like it is a meditation in itself. I am truly being present and trusting the sensations that are arising in my soma (we each have our first person experience of what we sense and feel as a “soma”) to guide me through my breath and movement practice.
