Movement as Medicine

Learn to move with ease and age with grace. Somatic movement is a healing practice that restores our nervous system to its natural state by inviting us to slow down and explore our inner landscape. Our internal explorations gradually make us aware of unconscious holding patterns that may have contributed to chronic injury or pain. Somatic movement presents us with opportunities to build new neural pathways so that we can move with greater ease and efficiency. As we become more practiced in the somatic approach, we begin to develop growing self-awareness in our daily lives, the first step towards regaining control of our lives and making different – and conscious choices. This is the somatic way.

Mindful Movement Classes

Many of us spend a good part of the day in a state of overstimulation arising from the effects of a 24-hour news cycle and the stress of daily living. The toxic effects of an unending barrage of alarming headlines about the state of our planet reside in our bodies and minds, but we are mostly unconscious to them. Somatic movement is a healing practice that restores our nervous system to its natural state by inviting us to slow down and explore our inner landscape. Our internal explorations gradually make us aware of unconscious holding patterns that may have contributed to chronic injury or pain. Somatic movement presents us with opportunities to build new neural pathways so that we can move with greater ease and efficiency.

Our Gifted Teachers

Wendy Schneider, BA, BEd, RYT

A former student of Iyengar and Anusara yoga, Wendy Schneider is a movement educator whose teaching methodology is a blend of somatics, the experiential science of the personal consciousness, with kinesiology, the science of human movement, function, and performance. Wendy believes that movement is a powerful medicine that can help people overcome injury and chronic pain related to unconscious holding patterns.  Under her guidance, her students learn to access their bodies' innate ability to move with ease and fluidity, and become leaders in their own change process. More about Wendy

Janet Steeves

I’ve had the privilege of studying with teachers that have supported and continue to inspire my yoga journey. In 2018, I was introduced to the field of somatic movement and in January 2019, I enrolled in a course called Intelligent Motion Training, offered by Kaila June, a movement science and somatic educator. This program offers a client-centered approach to movement education that helps people become their own change agents in shifting holding patterns that are keeping them from moving and feeling well. The training and support that I've received from the somatic community has enhanced my personal practice and influences the way I teach. For me, teaching is about bringing people together on common ground and helping them get in touch with who they inherently are. I offer a movement practice that opens students to the process of moving with awareness. My wish is for my students to discover an innate ability to generate energy from within and direct it in ways that deepen their connection to themselves and feel more confident, physically grounded and emotionally steady.
