Event description

Description

MH Vicars School Exclusive! Judy Lamontagne is travelling all the way from Vancouver Island to share this growing discipline with the MH Vicars community!

This workshop will teach you to explore and to develop an awareness of your body, to become aware of your habitual patterns of movement, and your unconscious patterns of muscular contraction and guarding. You will learn the theory behind Somatics, review relevant anatomy and physiology, and the essential Somatics movements and breathing techniques.

Once you have completed this course, you will be prepared to add Somatics movements and principles into your regular self-care practice. Creating a varied exercise routine that incorporates low-impact and mindfulness-based work like Somatics, alongside appropriate strengthening and cardio work, is essential to making sure you have a long a healthy massage career.

Key topics will include:

  • History of Somatics
  • Basic principles of Somatics
  • Human bodies and the stress response
  • Somatics breathing techniques
  • Somatics muscle control
  • Essential Somatics releases

About the instructor: Judy Lamontagne has been a fitness trainer and educator on Vancouver Island for over 30 years. She has been a personal trainer and owned her own gym, and has coached swimmers, runners, and triathletes. She is also a yoga trainer. She practices what she preaches, too – Judy has completed 4 Ironman triathlons!
Judy discovered Somatics after a friend recommended it as a way to manage chronic injuries and stiffness. She found the practice so transformative that she immediately signed up for a 3-year training course based in California. She now teaches Somatics, yoga, and combination classes in Duncan, BC.
