Gentle Somatics Stretch & Release with Melanie- Somatics is a complement to any activity you participate in and helps improve your daily functional movements.  As you explore the movements of Somatics you are connecting the body and mind through movement and meditation. As we bring awareness to our bodies (Soma’s) we can then help relieve pain, recover from injury, reduce stress and maximize flexibility. These exercises do not just address the body’s movement gateways as we walk and breath, but how we carry our stress and tension that leads into chronic neck, shoulders, hips and low back pain.  We as individuals view ourselves from the inside looking out otherwise the distinction between mind and body disappears. “We are our own best healers”.
