Somatic Class

The Invitation is to share a conversation with your body through verbal, non verbal, somatic and physical embodiment practices to explore your relationship with your body and the more than human world. The class is designed to nurture your own experiences as well as the opportunity to share in smaller groups after each movement exploration. The purpose is not to impose any particular method or teaching but allows you to discover, investigate & nourish your own embodiment practice.
