BODY-MIND HEALTH THROUGH SOMATIC MOVEMENT EDUCATION
WHAT IS SOMATICS?
The term is derived from the word "Somatic" (Greek "somatikos", soma: living, aware, bodily person) which means, pertaining to the body, experienced and regulated from within. The concept of soma proposes that neither your body nor your mind is separate from the other; both are part of your living process. Many of the approache... s in the field of somatics address the body-mind split endemic in Western culture and body-mind integration is a common goal. Freedom from restrictions in body and mind is another goal, so that you, the individual, function and thrive with full potential with self-regulation and independence within the environment in which you live. A fundamental principle is that growth, change, and transformation are always possible at any age.
WHAT IS PILATES?
Joseph Pilates' technique was originally developed almost 100 years ago. This holistic technique uses the breath to support a meditative set of movement sequences to bring your body-mind back into balance and harmony. It does this by combining a series of movement sequences. These sequences promote simple to complex mindful, flowing movements from the core muscles in the centre of your body outwards to your limbs and from the periphery of your limbs inward towards your centre.
