Join Clinical Somatic Educator Sarah Warren as she guides you through a class of Clinical Somatics posture exercises in the comfort of your home.
Did you know that most poor posture is the result of chronically tight muscles?
Tight chest and abdominal muscles pull the head and rib cage forward, resulting in forward head posture, rounded shoulders, or hyperkyphosis. We develop chronic tightness in the chest and abdominals as a result of stress, fatigue, and long hours spent at the computer, in the car, and looking downward at mobile devices.
Even if you have not yet developed poor posture, this class is an excellent way for anyone who spends long hours at a computer or driving to release the tension that they build up during the day.
In order to stand up straight easily and without effort, you need to train your nervous system to release your chronically tight muscles.
To retrain your nervous system to keep your muscles released, you must engage in an active learning process consisting of slow, conscious movements. Passive methods such as stretching, massage, and chiropractic don’t have any lasting effect because they do not change the messages that your brain is sending to your muscles to stay tight. Clinical Somatics posture exercises use the technique of pandiculation to retrain the nervous system to keep the chest and abdominal muscles released.
Clinical Somatics posture exercises are gentle, therapeutic, and suitable for all ages and physical abilities.
Lie down on a carpet or exercise mat and enjoy a relaxing 60-minute movement class. At the end of class, you’ll feel a wonderful sense of release in your chest and abdominal muscles, allowing you to sit and stand up straight easily and without effort.
*Please note that all the exercises in this class are also included in Full Body Pain Relief & Relaxation and the Level One & Two Courses.
