YogaSOMATICS was founded by Ateeka whose work has been inspired by Continuum Movement founder, the late Emily Conrad, Gestalt psychotherapist Ruella Frank, Danish spiritual teachers, Jes Bertelsen and Madhurima Rigtrup and is currently a student of Helen Gamborg, author of the “Invisible Aspects of Healing”, inspired by Bob Moor’s teachings about the subtle body, energy medicine and healing.
YogaSOMATICS is a contemporary blend of ancient yoga and modern somatics. It is an experiential bodywork practice using sensing and deep listening to make inner contact with oneself and the energetic body. The practice offers spaces of containment and exploration through aware movements, breathing, relaxation, mindfulness, meditation and contact bodywork. It is a return to connect to one’s own bio energy, through slow and subtle movement in a first-person relational experience.
It is a non-competitive, non-linear practice which has been designed to align with one’s own natural rhythm, honouring each individual to make contact with your own embodied wisdom; and may appeal to those who are new to yoga. It is an excellent practice for self-healing, energy protection and self-care.
