Somatic Stress Release™ addresses the underlying psycho-physical patterns associated with stress while promoting well-being through the lens of body-oriented therapies.

Stress related health challenges are now a widespread global issue. Chronic stress wreaks havoc on our health, impacts biological energy conservation, and makes us less attuned to the need for self-care. When a person encounters stress they form neuromuscular patterns to manage and protect themselves from the situation. A person maintains this activation even after the stressor is eliminated. This behavior prevents them from properly processing or mobilizing the stress. Similarly, individuals can get trapped in thought cycles which continually activate a physiological response, limiting their tolerance and capacity to manage additional stressors.

A physiological stress response happens throughout every system of the body, ultimately interacting with every cell. It’s no wonder that stress responses are interwoven with our emotions, immune function, thoughts, breath, and movements. Somatic Stress Release is a holistic approach that recognizes the complex layering of each individual’s relation to stress. Stress manifests itself in each person’s body differently. Understanding this unique body response allows each person to process and navigate the intricate layers of stress. One of the most effective pathways towards that awareness and negotiation is through feeling a deeper sense of and connection with the body-mind, an approach called somatics.

In this somatic approach there is a recognition that we engage with others and the world through sensations and movement. As stress is something experienced and expressed through the body, a somatic or body-focused approach can more quickly address habitual responses to internal and external stressors.

This certification is open to anyone (i.e yoga teachers, therapists, parents, teachers, etc) who wishes to addresses stress from a multidisciplinary holistic approach.

Schedule:
Wednesday May 29th through Sunday June 2nd 9:00am-4:00pm
