Somatic yoga is foremost a practice of mindfulness through movement. Somatic Yoga utilizes gentle physical movements to fine-tune the nervous system and eliminate involuntary responses to tension. Somatic Yoga lessons are therefore designed to call into awareness the basic movement habits that cause stress, and then to systematically release the body into more effortless motion. Instead of straining, groaning, and stretching, practitioners utilize stress-free, interesting movements that are easy to do and, most importantly, change the way they understand and use their bodies.
