Gentle Somatic Yoga, ‘Explore and Restore’
An awareness based movement class that can help you:
Explore where you hold tension in your body
Release stuck tension
Expand your range of movement
Integrate what you learn in class with the rest of your life.
Using a combination of Gentle Somatic Yoga and her 35+ years of experience as a movement educator, Fiona has created a class to help you build better communication and connection between your mind and your body, untangling the ‘knots’ that life can create.
You do not need any yoga, somatic or movement experience to attend the class. The class will use mat based moves, standing postures and movement exploration. You do need to be able to get down to the floor and get up again.
Gentle Somatic Yoga involves making small, slow, mindful movements in exercises known as ‘Somatic Flows’, to re-educate your body to release persistent tension.
Fiona’s 35+ years as a movement educator has included work in theatre, dance, fitness, education, health and well-being, as an active teacher, trainer and educator, as well as an assessor and verifier in a range of modalities including the Nia Technique and as a specialist educator in the field of seated and adapted movement.
Her most recent training in Hanna Somatics with Martha Peterson, Gentle Somatic Yoga with James Knight, Aerial Yoga with Radiant Star Yoga, Embodied Yoga Postures and Embodied Facilitation with Mark Walsh, has created the opportunity to bring a new approach to her continued love of facilitating others to feel at home in their body and sense the joy of being alive.
Classes are limited to a maximum of 2 people only, so you need to contact Fiona in order to book and confirm your place. She can then give you the venue details and directions. Please arrive 10 minutes before the start of your first class, so that Fiona can meet you and find out what you want from the class. Wear comfortable clothing you can move in (layers are good), and either be barefoot or wear socks that grip. Bring a mat and a blanket if you can……there will be some available.
