Somatic Yoga & Expressive Arts


A Six Week Series
April 20 - May 25, 2022

The word somatic literally means ‘body’, however it is seen most often used in connection with talk therapy whereby the practitioner invites the client to ‘tap’ into the body for information.  We are finally coming to a place in modern research where we can celebrate the realization that there is no separation between the mind and the body, the breath and the mind, the energy and the flesh.  There is deep knowledge within the body tissue, the breath, and the layers of our story.   In this course you will be given the opportunity to feel your movements carefully, explore your feelings through body awareness, and allow breath, sound, art, journaling and other expressive arts to lead you toward a profound place of getting to know these layers of experience deeply.  This well cultivated practice naturally inspires subtle transformation.  Each session delivers a curated blend of movement, meditation, art,  journaling and guided journeys. You will discover your own ways of taking care of all your layers, feeling all the feelings, and moving from a place that is authentic and exactly what you need at any given time, ultimately becoming your own true healer and knower of your true life, which is yours to enjoy fully.
