Somatic Lesson

As with all Somatic exploration has three important strategies:

1). Speed… Slow down to feel more.

2). Respect your limits.. don’t bring it to your end range. It’s not a stretch or exercise. Keep movements small and slow.

3). Keep comfortable – if it’s not comfortable, don’t do it.

Take care of yourself,

Regards Sonya. www.bodyworksireland.com
