Somatic practices use your internal awareness—through proprioception, interoception, kinesthetic awareness,etc.—to bring awareness to both habits and potential new choices you have in moving and embodying your life. Somatic learning can make the unconscious conscious, and in the process leaves you with more options for moving, acting, thinking, and living. It maximizes not just your physical body but your full human potential. The processes of working this way allows your own nervous system to recalibrate and for there to be lasting change that comes from a deep inner awareness of how you move.  Somatics can be used to relieve pain, manage stress, and improve performance both physically and qualitatively in all aspects of life (sports, arts, work, and play). One has the opportunity to find greater ease and pleasure in your movement and life. No experience necessary.

“Movement is life. Life is a process. Improve the quality of the process and you improve the quality of life itself. “

Moshe Feldenkrais
