Drawing on ancient and contemporary practices SOMATIC YOGA is the beginning of a journey through and with the bod, connecting the physical with the spiritual to support mental wellness. This class is tailored to those who struggle with physical or mental illnesses, or for those who simply want to slow down and experience a more embodied practice. Central to the practice is an awareness of mental wellness, felt sensations, nervous system fluctuations and how to recognize individual boundaries within yoga. Participants will connect to a deeper understanding of their bodies through yoga and somatic healing.
Jenni-Leigh is certified in Positive Psychology and Spiritual Coaching. She is currently in her advanced year of Somatic Experiencing therapy certification (Trauma Therapy) and specializes in Therapeutic Yoga with a strong focus on mood disorders (PTSD, anxiety and depression) and stress management.
