A one day workshop for QLD teachers and students.
Finding Comfort and Ease in Your Body and Life in 20 minutes a day
This Somatic movement workshop is designed to relieve your aches and pains from everyday activities like sitting at desks, working with computers and mobile phones, driving for long hours or any other repetitive or held posture. Learn how to fine tune your internal body awareness so you can sense where chronic tension might be causing imbalances or pain in your body.
Be guided through a series of slow, gentle movements to re-balance and release those areas where you hold on. Learn a simple sequence you can do in 20 minutes to maintain comfort. Re-connect with your deeper Self and float out remembering what it felt like to be comfortable in your own skin and bones.
Ease in Lying – releasing tight backs
Ease in Sitting – releasing tight shoulders, necks and hips
Ease in Turning – releasing through twisting
Ease in Walking – releasing the legs and hips
Arrive at 8.45am for a 9am start. Workshop will finish at 4.30pm.
Please bring socks and a shawl/blanket for warmth as well as your mat, blanket and your favourite cushion/bolster to sit on.
Any questions please contact Lesleigh Camm (QLD State Representative) on 0409533701.
Katrina Hinton is a 500 hour accredited yoga teacher from the respected Nature Care College and a member of Yoga Australia. She has trained with some of the luminaries of the yoga world and continues to regularly deepen her skills and understanding at local and international workshops.
Katrina specialises in Somatics; a mind-body-movement modality founded by Thomas Hanna, a student of Moshe Feldenkrais. Somatics is a movement therapy designed to re-learn our natural movement patterns so we can move with ease and relieve chronic pain associated with a host of muscular and postural conditions. Katrina is continuously using her own experience and her student’s as research for her classes and is grateful for the life-changing empathy that past injuries have bestowed. Her Somatics classes help people shine a light of new awareness on the way they experience their bodies and movement with more grace and ease.
Katrina teaches small personalised classes from her home studio in Canberra. She is one of only a handful of qualified yoga and Somatics movement educators trained by Donna Farhi, Lisa Petersen and Martha Peterson in Australia.
Katrina also offers individual somatic assessments to identify any postural or trauma related imbalances and prescribes customised somatics movements to address individual’s specific needs.
