What is Somatic Yoga
Somatic Yoga integrates the science of neuromuscular retraining with body consciousness through the breath. It is mainly done lying down or seated (chair or floor), making it extremely adaptable. When you slow down and experience yourself through movement and breath, you learn to self-regulate the nervous system and keep your internal state steady and balanced. It is beneficial to all the systems of the body and can reduce pain, heal trauma, improve sleep and increase vitality.
