Creating Safety Workshop 2/3
This is 2 out of 3 classes of the Creating Safety Workshop conducted last year. Click https://youtu.be/cnvKjk5IBJw to join the full class on youtube.
This second class of the creating safety workshop starts off with exploring a sense of integration between our individual bodies (the micro), with that of the earth (the macro). We tap into body weight, and the forces of gravity and rebound to find a sense of ease, support and body awareness. I also speak about yielding and collapsing, and how through the somatic exploration exercises, we can strike a healthy symbiotic relationship between these two states. In this sense, yielding would not equate to the over-activation of our nervous system, and collapsing would not equate to the total lapsing or shut down of our nervous systems. The ability of our nervous systems to calibrate and shift itself flexibly between these two states translates to a greater sense of being. We also explore feet work and a somatic play exercise with a chair.

In the first class of the reating safety workshop, we explore a series of exercises and 3-dimensional movement from head to toe to build body awareness and a sense of felt safety. We also explore the use of weight, breath, and support of gravity.

In the weeks leading up, I’ll be sharing a free somatic class weekly via my youtube channel. These classes were conducted last year through zoom. May these videos provide a weekly mind-body reset, room for your curious explorations and comfort in these uncertain times. If you would like to find out more about somatic work, feel free to write in to me too.
