About the Event

Awake into Movement is a somatic practice designed to offer both the theory and the ‘how to’ of incorporating nervous system regulation into your personal and professional life. 

Highlighting the importance of the mind-body connection, it aims to deepen embodied awareness for the purpose of attaining a more integrative state of mental health and wellbeing. 

This 1-hour experiential workshop will focus on: 

  • Understanding the nervous system as our primary information receiver. 
  • Exploring what it feels like to approach our experiences from a bottom-up perspective (body first, mind second).

The workshop aims to offer:

  • An opportunity to reconnect to the mind-body relationship through noticing- and naming physical sensation first, rather than thought or emotion.
  • Simple and accessible somatic exercises that can be used to support healthy nervous system regulation for you and your clients.
