Drape yourself over a Somat and quickly experience a state of calmness, relaxation and body ease like nothing else. In this workshop, you’ll be introduced to the specially-designed mat, designed to downshift your nervous system into a regenerative, restorative state. The Somat offers support and feedback for your back and relieves tension: slow, organic sequences focus on the spine and the rhythm of the breath, settling parasympathetic responses and easing stress.
A bit like “flossing your back”, working on the Somat can become daily part of daily hygiene and whatever practice you choose. Once in sync on the Somat, you’ll land in a sensory experience that strays from the physical into the psychological and emotional. In this state, you’ll reset the regenerative mechanisms of your nervous system, become attuned to your body’s messages and experience less stress all around. All physical abilities welcome.

Somats will be provided for the workshop and are available to purchase (you will also need a yoga mat.)

Instructor — Chiara Guerrieri

Chiara teaches with a focus on wellness through discovery, guided by extensive study into the body’s inner workings. Her classes, workshops and travel retreats teach how to connect with the body through the breath, how to track physical sensation moment to moment and how to find an internal sense that guides movement and choices for well- being. Chiara has studied a wide-range of bodymind disciplines – Yoga, Hypnosis, Neuro Linguistic Programing, Massage, Meditation, NonViolent Communication – mastering the material deeply enough to teach in each of these areas. Chiara has been working as a massage therapist since 1983, a yoga instructor and teacher of Anatomy & Physiology in yoga teacher trainings since 1996. She is currently the first teacher and instructor trainer for the Somat outside of Italy.
