Movement as Medicine

Somatic movement is a healing practice that restores our nervous system to its natural state by inviting us to slow down and explore our inner landscape. Through examination of martial arts concepts and somatic principles, Wendy's classes allow for challenges to emerge from what is easy. The experience of the interrelated concepts of safety, support, ease and comfort allow us to move seamlessly into the territory of challenges. We delve into breathing; enriching our ability to experience a connection to ourself and our environment and our challenges.Our internal explorations gradually make us aware of unconscious holding patterns that may have contributed to chronic injury or pain. Somatic movement presents us with opportunities to build new neural pathways so that we can move with greater ease and efficiency. As we become more practiced in the somatic approach, we begin to develop growing self-awareness in our daily lives, the first step towards regaining control of our lives and making different – and conscious choices. This is the somatic way.
