A NOTE FROM THE OWNER
As a dancer, I need to be comfortable in my body at all times. I have learned to find a dynamic balance of stamina, stability, and mobility. But too much stress disrupts this balance, and causes a dangerous cycle of tension that is hard to shake. This cycle is my greatest obstacle as a dancer.
I have discovered that a somatic approach to exercise and healing prioritizes the feeling of ease. Feeling my movements (versus thinking about my efforts) unravels my habitual tensions.
Somatics means "self-experience". Everyone has access to awareness, regardless of how hard the task at hand. At our studio we focus clients on somatic, sensory-based healing. We offer clients ease and movement efficiency while simultaneously building pain free muscles and mobile joints. The result is a calm, alert mind and healthy, painless movement. I love to watch people realize that they can feel strong and relaxed at the same time.
Not everyone moves like a dancer, but everyone, regardless of condition, can benefit from the dancer’s somatic toolbox. -Hallie Aldrich
