Description

IT'S SOMAYOGA TIME AT THE BARN AGAIN!

Combining SomaYoga and Horses is a powerful combination. You will experience the horses helping and supporting you while you release tension in your body!

I have experienced this practice myself in the presence of the horses and was inspired by their willingness to lengthen and release their muscles with my every move. It made me think about how much tension we all carry in our bodies, albeit sometimes in unknown places. A lot of my tension is carried in my jaw and I was surprised to see my Romeo releasing tension in his jaw with me – he must have thought “thank heaven’s she is finally releasing, now I can too”.

Our Yogi for the day will be Alana Burton of Yoga Evolution. I met Alana at a horsemanship clinic not too long ago and we felt an immediate connection!

In this workshop we will explore how and why muscles become habitually tense through the natural reflexes our body responds with from day to day physical and emotional stress, injury and trauma and misuse creating imbalances.

Years of adjusting to these changes can lead to pain in the neck, back, hips, knees, shoulders, etc., which can eventually lead to sciatica, scoliosis, carpal tunnel, disc degeneration, arthritis, fatigue, or other functional problems.

We will then explore how we can release the tension through the very gentle practice of SomaYoga Therapy which blends Somatics, Therapeutic Yoga and Classic Asana.

Muscles are released, relaxed and balanced through the use of somatic movements which focus the brain specifically on the contracted muscles and movement patterns. This simple process, when practiced daily, can undue years of chronic tension and pain.

NO PREVIOUS YOGA EXPERIENCE NECESSARY! COME ONE COME ALL.
