soothing manoeuvers #12 orienting
Somatics means “having to do with the body” and this type of work explores where we carry our stress and old and new traumas in our body. It also explores how to work with the body to release these heavy energies that we’ve stored in a safe and manageable way. I’ve recently been learning from Irene Lyon who teaches about the importance of a regulated nervous system and I encourage you to check out the abundance of resources on her site and her YouTube channel.
