THE CENTERED ROOM
General & Somatic Yoga Rangiora
Classes are grounded in a traditional yoga lineage but enhanced with somatic enquiry to create a mindful practice with emphasis on interoception. Each class has a mixture of pranayama (breath awareness), asana (movement/poses), and meditation.
Students are encouraged to develop and use their sense of "feeling from the inside-out" in a way that expresses their asanas while still being safe in their practice - suggestions may be offered as enquiry. Students are encouraged to be curious about their responses and senses.
Private classes may be available on request.
EXCLUSIVE OFFER - this is the only studio in NZ offering this method
Be amongst the first in NZ to experience this gentle practice. Learn how to re-pattern your nervous system to release muscle tensions without stretching.
Gentle Somatic Yoga® (GSY) is an Art-of-movement practice that incorporates therapeutic yoga & somatic movements that are slow, mindful and help amplify bodily awareness so it can self-heal. This allows the practitioner to self-correct and permanently release persistent stress-based patterns from within their body (Soma).
Instead of focusing on stretching muscles, GSY utilizes the technique of pandiculation to reprogram muscles to their most optimal length in a resting position. The restorative sequences, called Somatic Movement Flows®, are ideal for unwinding stiffness, pain and postural imbalances, and will significantly increase flexibility through brain-to-muscle re-education. From this place of new-found freedom, we naturally return to our generative state of peace and well-being.
