Release & Relax with Somatics

with Carrie Day

6 Week Series: September 20th - October 25th

Wednesdays 5:30pm - 6:30pm

 

SMP_0953.jpg

In these 6 weeks, we will be learning Tom Hanna's "cat stretch" explorations, found in Somatics: Reawakening the Mind's Control of Movement, Flexibility, and Health. These movements are a basic tonic to address the main movement patterns that can lead to restricted movement due to pain or inflexibility. We have many patterns that help us with all our day-to-day activities, but sometimes if we repeat the same movements over and over, it can lead to overly contracted muscles, restricting full freedom of movement. Hanna's series helps to "re-train" the brain's control over these patterns for greater flexibility and muscle balance. This is a very gentle class that offers you simple, straightforward movement explorations that you can do at home for continued self-care. All are welcome for this wonderfully guided self-exploration series!

This series will be sequential in learning new information each week, but can still stand on their own as drop-ins as we review each class

$15 drop-in, $66 for the six weeks.

Free and Easy Walking, through Somatic Movement Awareness

leaf-2597122_1920.jpg

Sunday, October 1 at 12 PM - 2 PM with Carrie Day!

Walking is one of the most basic human movements. We teach ourselves how to walk when we are babies, yet sometimes life brings aches and pains that cause our gait to get a little “off”. Free and easy walking depends on freedom of movement in the center of the body. In this two hour workshop, we will break down the mechanics of walking using gentle and easy explorations enabling your hips and shoulders to work together freely and easily. Join us in learning how utilizing the central nervous system with slow, gentle movement can re-pattern muscle habits, leading to fuller function. This will be a fun class offering a new perspective on how your whole body can move with ease. 

All levels welcome. Movement, yoga, & fitness practitioners encouraged.

Asheville Acropeutics Workshop
with Eric Asay and Megan Hislop

This workshop will focus on the balance of strength and flexibility in order to achieve effortless technique and a sustainable practice.

If you are a curious bodyworkers, acro enthusiasts, or just someone who wants to explore new tools for body maintenance and ways to improve your movement patterns this workshop is for you.

Megan and Eric will focus on different and accessible ways to stimulate the nervous system in order to elicit improvement in functional strength and mobility. From gentle neural/fascial release to stimulation of inactive muscle groups, plan on trying some different assessments and movement patterns. We will use what we find and try to be more accurate with our touch... then add flexibility only where needed and stability only where there is instability. These skills will allow you to help yourself and your partner continue to practice acrobatics as you age, with less injury and better technique.

In this class you will:

*test if you tend towards strength or flexibility.
*take before and after photos to measure change
*practice skills to maintain a balance body for you, acro partners and friends
*learn techniques on the ground and then apply them in the air
*experience some new therapeutic fly or acropeutics
*refine our quality of touch and understanding of the nervous system
*have fun!

This will be an all levels class, if you are seasoned with Acropeutics (Acro Therapeutics, Partner Acrobatics, Acro Yoga, Etc.) we will make sure to challenge you, and if you are new to this practice you will feel supported in the learning process!

Bring a snack for the break.
