This is my Signature Program of gently releasing contracted muscles caused by habits we have accumulated over the years leading to poor posture and painful joints/muscles.
Somatic yoga technique releases chronic muscular contraction by resetting the sensory motor feedback loop which is responsible for sensing and regulation of muscle length.
Repeating the movement deliberately and slowly allows the brain to learn the correct movement and the movement then becomes automatic. This is when the re-pattern of movement begins to release chronic muscle contraction allowing efficient natural movement patterns.
“Be persistent, patient and positive. Somatic exercises change to your body by teaching your brain. Your learning grows steadily and solid. You must be patient, not looking for a quick fix on your body but for a genuine lasting change in your comfort range of movement posture and general functioning.”
