    2019.05.31

    Class description: Introduction to Somatics

    Instructor: Carolyn Pigott
    You will be introduced to fundamental movements that reconnect your brain to your muscles. Through the practice of deep breathing techniques and mindful awareness you will discover areas of your body that are stuck in something called sensory motor amnesia, a chronically tight state in the muscles. You will be gently guided to unlock these patterns and feel a renewed sense of ease and comfort in these muscles. Your mind and body will relax and you will walk out feeling a renewed vitality to take on your life once again!

    This class is suitable for all ages and abilities.

    Investment: $18/class drop in or $60/4 classes
