As children, most of us incorporated a wide variety of movements into our day-- running, climbing, dancing, and more. As adults, our movements become more and more limited, until we are essentially specialists in one thing-- sitting. Add into the equation the many physical and mental stressors, accidents, and injuries in our lives which create layer upon layer of compensatory movement patterns. Is it any wonder that the movements of children seem much more free and fluid than those of adults?
"Getting older" is blamed for many of our ills. But truly it is the way we have used (or not used) our bodies, rather than our age, that determines our function. And as our body becomes more sedentary, our brain also begins to forget the important movements of our youth, as the connections in the brain that control these muscles begin to weaken.
How, then, can we restore our body's functional movement patterns and learn to move freely once again?
Somatic movements are very gentle movements united by a cohesive method that help to restore these lost movement patterns and regain function. Join Emily Konstan, Certified Essential Somatics Movement Teacher, in exploring Somatic movements from the tradition of Thomas Hanna.
In this class you will learn:
- The three essential components you should add to your movement routine every day.
- Why inhibited movement in the trunk can impact the entire body.
- How to get out of fight or flight mode.
- How to use mindfulness to uncover movement patterns that don't serve you.
- How to re-write your brain's "code" for muscular movement.
