BODY AWARENESS

£10 drop in/passes available

Body Awareness is a low impact, quiet class useful to all levels. In body awareness we incorporates slow, mindful movements that raise bodily awareness to heal persistent tension-based patterns in the body. We work with corrective exercises that are ideal for overcoming bodily pain as well as dramatically increasing flexibility through the healing power of brain-to-muscle awareness and re-education. Body Awareness is based on principles of Somatics, Feldenkrais as well as breath work and yoga. Somatics comes from the word soma, or "the body as perceived from within".
